I got ripped off on this purchase. In Japan their MSRP is 58,000 yen (which is about 755 US dollars) and is almost twice the price of US MSRP. I was able to get it for 47,000 yen through an online dealer.
Can't wait to hear your impressions of the board once you get more days riding in. I just got my 52 hovercraft but I'm still waiting for the snow in California.
The prices for Jones in Japan is insane..
I was able to pick mine up for $350 USD through a local shop
