Jones Freecarver 9000 2024 Review by The Good Ride

Jones Freecarver 9000 Snowboard Video and Written Review

Here is our take of the Jones Freecarver 9000 Snowboard Review from average riders with extensive board knowledge and an exceptionally objective perspective.

Turn Ons/Swipe Right: Super Camber Down the line Carver. Softer flex than you would think.
Turn Offs/Swipe Left: Horrible in Pow. Very Catchy. Not a daily driver.


The Jones Freecarver 9000 is not a versatile board but it sure does down the line high-speed carves well. This has a massive camber but with a softer flex than you would think for this type of board. It’s a really fun mellow-cross kind of ride. It seems 9000 stands for it’s sidecut radius which is 9m or higher. That is for straight liners. The 6000 (which we couldn’t try but hope to this year) is better for those that like to circle carve.

How It Was Tested

I had nothing close to test this against so I took a run on the Hovercraft to compare one day with the same boots/bindings after testing the Freecarver.

Approximate Weight

The Jones Freecarver 9000 felt normal.

(We don’t put in the exact weight because with wood cores there is no consistency in a boards weight)


Jones Freecarver 9000 156 Sizing







Jones Freecarver 9000 160 Sizing






Here are some ideal US boot sizes for the Jones Freecarver 9000 boards. These are not to be ridden in a normal size because you want zero toe/heel drag. Get this much wider than you normally would but also get it shorter. Jones has mixed sizing on the site. Jones recommends the 160 for my weight and the 156 for my boot size. I choose the 156 for my boot size and I was soo glad I did. I would not like going up to the 160 at all as the 156 was all I wanted to handle.

Here are my recommended boot sizes Jones Freecarver 9000. So if you are a little above the recommended weight range for the choose boot size overweight recommendation unless you are ok with having to work massively hard to turn this.
152: 8-10
156: 9-11
160: 10-12
164: 11-13

Shape/Camber/On Snow Feel/Ability Level

This is very directional and very set back but with not a lot of taper. Then you throw in this massive camber with a ton of effective edge going into a nub of a spoon nose that is barely taller than the camber you have a very catchy board. There a touch of spoon tech in the tiny nose but it only makes it marginally less forgiving. . I barely felt the spoon nose and it didn’t feel washy leaning into the front foot in good conditions.

Jones Freecarver 9000 Camber





The overall personality of this board is exceptionally catchy, technical and very unique for a specific type of rider.

Flex Personality










The Jones Freecarver 9000 has a massive amount of camber but a more medium flex. At least our demo’s did. Maybe production is a little more stiff but overall the flex does not match the shape and camber. That is why we call this mellow-cross.

Uneven Terrain

No thanks. It will do better than you would think with this damp construction but it will just be hard as hell to turn in any uneven snow. It will go straight through it really well though.

Edge Hold

The Jones Freecarver 9000 grips very well and the softer flex doesn’t seem to effect the grip as much as I thought.

Speed/Base Glide







There is a very fast base.

Turning Experience/Carving

Jones Freecarver Carving








The Jones Freecarver 9000 does not turn quickly at all. This is very slow and made to go straight. There is a shit ton of camber so the faster you, the more it flexes, and the more it springs out of a turn. It is not an across the groomer or circle carver. It is more about high speed narrower radius carves. What I like about this is you can front foot weight, center weight or back foot weight your carve. I really didn’t have a preference as long as I was set up with a posi stance and I didn’t feel the tail wash on front foot or center weighted carves.


No thanks. It would be like trying to get it on with barely a chub happening. It would be embarrassing for you, the powder and everyone who watched. I tried boards like this in powder in the past and it was a night mare trying to keep that tiny nose up higher than the massive camber pointing it back down into the snow. I’m over it.


I was really hoping for the Jones Freecarver 6000 because I’m a much more turny kind of guy. I thought I would not be into the Jones Freecarver 9000 but it’s mellowish flex (well for this type of board) saved the day and I had a pretty good time on clean groomers. What was interesting is Davey took this in a mellow park and it showed how well it would do on a more demanding Boarder X coarse.

If this review helped, we’d appreciate if you:
