Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I saw this board a few years ago and it spoke to me. I imagined that if I were to design a board, it would be this. The shape, the set back stance, the clean bamboo aesthetic. The hovercraft is a work of art.
Long story short, I bought a hovercraft for the powder days and I end up riding it on almost all of the days. The sensation of hovercrafting on powder is definitely something to experience, but of course most days are not powder days. So what I have come to truly appreciate is how much fun it is on groomers. It is happier riding directionally than switch, but I'm sure you could figure that one out.
And also, much like Harleys or VW beetles, it seems to have a certain cult following. It is the only board I have ever ridden where other hovercrafters will see me on it and want to take a few runs together.
