Default ISO: Jones Hovercraft 164

I don't know if I'm on a a mythical journey for the last unicorn or not, but finding a 2013/2014 Jones Hovercraft 164 seems impossible. I've checked local retailers and online sources in Europe with no luck. A few 160's and smaller, but no 164's.

I'll be in Vegas in April, and I have U.S. addresses I can ship to anytime, so if anyone knows of a shop or recalls seeing one from an online retailer then please post a link here or pm me.

And for the record, I do kind of know how to work google and I'm not looking for a personal shopper!! Just a bit of assistance from people who may be in the know.

That really is going to be a question of someone knowing a shop has that, 164cm seems to be out of stock everywhere...

Exactly. I did find one on Amazon, but it is used and they offer no information on the board or pictures. Used can mean a lot of things, and the price isn't reduced much beyond what I see the 160's selling for. I'm tempted to go for a 160, but I'm riding at around 110-115kg including gear and extra cake. The would be a bit short.

I did ride the 156, and as nice as it was, it was easily too small. I only rode it for the sake of riding it.

Had a look here in Norway for you, and nothing that size, nothing in the UK either...

Think you are going to have to wait for next season or choose something else...

Hope dies last!

I'll be keeping my eyes open. I think I've checked all major online retailers, at this point I'm hoping some shop worker employee sees this and hooks it up.

Nice, good looking out. Now why aren't their Jones boards on sale when the rest of them are. Full retail this time of year and I'd be better off just buying next years. Their sales look decent on the other boards. I'll keep my eye on them for sure. Thanks!

Always worth dropping them an email, too make sure they actually have them, and also to see if they would do a deal...

Stoked!! After more research (both in shop and online) I found a 164 in Austria and pulled the trigger on it. All this talk about hovercrafts being a noodle seems to contradict what I've seen. Even on a 160 in the shop with bindings and boots, the board wasn't super flexible. Ok, the extended nose has some flex, but the tail and board under foot isn't loose. Anyway, stoked on the new find. I told myself I wouldn't get new bindings, but I can't help but shop around for them just for fun
