It's pretty obvious ETM has never ridden a Hovercraft because his theories about them are completely wrong. I have one and it feels like a full camber board on the hardpack, it holds an edge on ice and floats great in the powder, it's also very fast on the groomers. I'd rather have a 156 in a steep chute or in the trees than a 180 any day. Don't get me wrong, I'm also a fan of the LibTech Birdman, but the Hovercraft is a little more versatile in my books. I've ridden it on a groomer/hard pack day and I've ridden it in waist deep powder and it's great for both.
