They say: Extreme freestyle power with all around manoeuvrability.
We say: Smiley is Drake’s reverse camber tech – a continuous rocker which gives this board a lively feel. This means it’s not the most stable at speed, but for presses and butters it’s spot on.
Tester says: Fun. Bendy, snappy and responsive. For playing in the park and on boxes.

About Drake

  • Building boards since: 2007
  • HQ: Onigo, Italy
  • History lesson: The brand name Drake first appeared in 1997, when Northwave, a Italian snowboard boot-maker decided to branch out into bindings. Drake bindings had a reputation for being pretty much indestructible. Drake didn’t start building boards until ten years later, but they’ve already developed a pretty good reputation for quality at a decent price.
  • Ridden by: Shredders who are looking for a board that looks pimp, and rides pimp, but doesn’t cost as much as a full-blown pimpin’ lifestyle.
