They say: Amazing response and speed that lets you enjoy everything the mountain has to offer.
We say: A nice beginner’s package at a price that seems almost ludicrous from a quality board manufacturer. OK so this has an extruded base, and isn’t the most technical stick, but for two hundred quid it’s a steal!
Tester says: Really good all round board for the money.

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.
