They say: The perfect jibbing machine.
We say: With its ‘Smiley’ rocker profile and its soft pop, the Misty is designed as a jib stick. But the same qualities which make it good for indoor riders and jibbers also make it an attractive proposition for first time riders – especially that price.
Tester says: Sweet and supple – too soft for big kickers, but great on rails and jibs.

- 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.
