They weren't kidding when they describe it as "mellow". I can barely tell there is any magnetraction on my hovercraft either.

Topsheet was blemished and the base had a couple blemishes as well. Two thumbs down for the shit job Nidecker did on what could have been an awesome topsheet.
Nidecker's quality control in the Tunisia factory is highly suspect. I received 3 hovercrafts (group buy) and all 3 of them had off-set base graphics (S is cut off). They're all from different serial number batches and one is a smaller length that has different die-cut colors. Not even sure how something like that gets past a competent QC. The nose on one was blemed and the base on another was blemed. I guess you can't really expect top top quality at these prices but Nidecker's issues are giving Jones' brand a bad name.
