Why We Chose The Jones Tweaker: Jones has busted out of the freeride shackles with this unashamed freestyle deck (albeit one that won’t be lacking outside of the park ropes).

Up til now, the closest Jones got to making a park board was the long-serving Mountain Twin – and even that was more suited to hitting natural features as part of its all-mountain remit. However, what we have here is a bona fide true twin that absolutely belongs in the park, yet is still unmistakably a Jones.

Who Is The Jones Tweaker For?

David Benedek is the rider that comes to mind; a freestyle pioneer who always championed the art of carve (even when it was far out of favour in the snowboard world) and fully understood how a snowboard works on the ground, not just in the air. If you want to Be More Benedek (and we all should), then this will help you get there.



Shape, Profile and Sidecut

One thing we’re really jazzed about is the fact that, for all of Jeremy Jones’ tinkering in workshops with surf shapers, he’s made the call to give this full camber. No rocker sections, just the classic bend. For our money, not enough park boards take that approach these days. When it comes to pop and power, nothing else comes close.

Of course, Jones can afford to do this in part because of its 3D-shaped bases. The spooned nose and tail make the edge changes feel more like a smooth gliding motion, and less like a scorp waiting to happen.

The blunt nose and tail have obvious benefits when you want to spin or get up onto a rail, but they’re also there to maximise float in softer snow. It might seem counter-intuitive, but physics never lies. While you won’t be expected to hit many pow fields on this, it’s also the case in spring slush, which will come in very handy on those late season send-off sessions. Plus the double-radius sidecut makes it ride like a less stubby deck on firmer terrain.

Construction and Materials

Like many a freestyle-specific deck, the Jones Tweaker features a 100% poplar core and biax fibreglass. This winning combination can withstand a season’s worth of abuse in the park, but doesn’t make the board too heavy or rigid.

The only additives of note are the stringers that transfer energy from the bindings to the edges. While these are often made of carbon, Jones uses its bespoke blend of naturally-occuring materials (flax and basalt) to improve response with minimal impact on the environment.

It racks up more eco-points elsewhere, thanks to the topsheet made from beans, the edges made entirely from recycled steel, and the Wend natural wax that slickens up the rapid sintered base. This is all par for the course for Jones, so if you’ve been looking for a new park stick but haven’t yet found anything green enough for your liking, your time has come.

With its constant march of expansion – as well as its ever-increasing stable of boards, Jones now makes bindings, backcountry accessories and even outerwear – it was only a matter of time before the first true Jones park board came along.

This is an area of board design with more limitations than what you can get up to with a powder shape, but it’s good to see that Jones has squeezed every last drop of innovation and quality from the concept – most of which make it ideal for taking to other parts of the mountain, too. Jeremy Jones says this is no regular park board, and we’re inclined to agree.


  • Camber! Glorious, uncompromising camber
  • Park closed? No worries – this can go anywhere


  • The unique combination of the outline and the 3D shape will take some getting used to for regular popsicle-stick riders

Trade Secrets

Seth Lightcap – Nidecker Group

“Truth be told, the Tweaker has been a secret project in the works for a few seasons. A true twin may seem like an odd addition to the Jones line, but that’s exactly why we took our time and made a super sick one! Not only do we have a bunch of team riders who love to ride true twins, we also have some next level board tech that allowed us to make a true twin unlike anything else out there. The special sauce that sets the Tweaker apart is the V-Core profiling of the wood core, and the double radius tip profile. The wood core is softer between the feet for a buttery board feel, and the tip and tail are stiffer for supreme stompability. The unique tip profile has a progressive radius profile that kicks up slowly at first, then gets steeper at the very end. The double radius maximizes the running length while delivering more float than expected of such a blunted shape. You can twist the Tweaker and press into butters without worrying about folding the tips. It’s an insanely fun freestyle board that can charge the whole mountain – a claim we don’t take lightly!”
