Jones Storm Chaser Snowboard Review

Jones Storm Chaser 2016 Review by The Good Ride

The Jones Storm Chaser is one of their first truly dedicated powder surfers in their line. Most of the boards in Jones line are exceptional groomer boards too but this one is more powder specific. Its not the best one board solution but wouldn’t be bad to add to a quiver for those that like to surf powder.

When it comes to riding powder, the Jones Stormchaser is a great choice. I’ve ridden the 147, and god this was fun. It has the best float in the deep and no need to lean back at all! Actually I would advise those who take this one out, to actually ride it without putting a lot of pressure on your back foot since that should bring you a little more stability and will allow you to take more aggressive lines without washing out.
Considering its shape, it was expected of the Stormchaser to excel in powder, but the main reason why I would like to write a review about it, it's because of how well it did on the groomers. Obviously, you are not supposed to use this one looking to break speed records, but if you are looking for a fun, surfy ride, this one is hard to beat. The mellow magna-traction (signature edge design from Jones) gives you plenty of edge hold for those who like to lay on a carve. If you want to surf the mountain, this is probably one of your best choices in the market.
