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

Update #2: I tried this out with the maximum set back for the first time and it made a huge difference. I was able to ride this board nose heavy in deep pow and it was just really hard for this thing to nose dive. The ride outside of the fluffy stuff also felt smoother and damper. So I'll be keeping the bindings set furthest to the back from now on.

Hey Pjstyles, if you want a good comparison with the Hovercraft and Gentemstick, I'd suggest trying the Giant Mantaray. Look forward to your feedback!
