Hey guys,
I do most of my riding in Hokkaido, Japan. I got a Jones Hovercraft last year and it was super fun. I have been eyeing off a Burton Con Artist that's on sale but am worried I'd just be doubling up on two similar performing boards.

Anyone ridden both? What do you think?

PS I know I don't need more boards, I just want more!:thumbsup:

Hmm I'm 6'2 160. With a 60cm stance.
I really liked the board - I bet it would make your hover feel cheap. Floats really well, but I sold it in the end because I wanted something a bit longer. So i got a 63 juice wagon.
I miss not having the con artist for banked slaloms though

Right. It is tempting because trees in hokkaido can be tight and it looks pretty good for that. Maybe i should stick with the hover and get a 163 powder snake, petty cheap now.
Did the Con artist feel much different to the hover?

I've never ridden a hover but my friends one went pretty soft after a season.
The con artist is a really good board, and it will make tight trees a breeze. The nug is good for that too, or the root. Both if those should be pretty cheap.
