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.

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.
