Default Jones hovercraft

I'm looking for a nimble powder board and I have decided to buy a the Jones hover craft. My question is how does the 152 compare to the 156? I haven't been able to find any info.

i dont know from experience but from my research:

its basically a wide regular camber board with a long flexy nose for float.

the effective edge on the 152 is about the same length as a 156-158 board and you get more use out of it because of the camber.

im 5'10 160, i would take the 152, Jeremy rides the 156 but he is a badass mofo

the flagship is pretty much the same board but has a tail so you can land switch.

I'd say that they're pretty similar apart from being 4cm different in length. LOL

Nah dude, it's powder board. Go 156. 156 will still be plenty maneuverable and playful.

I'm usually in the 175-180 range (currently 200, but getting my sorry ass back into shape) and my powder stick is a 164.

You're bigger than Jeremy. That's him pictured with me in my avatar pic. He's in the 5'8" range and I'd be surprised if he's a pound over 150 - in other words, about the same size as most pro riders.
