They say: Rule every park and street session.
We say: A soft stick at the jibby end of the all-mountain spectrum. There’s no rocker on this version, meaning it still has enough pop for bigger kickers, but the ready de-tuned edges tell you it’s primarily a rail board.
Tester says: Very jibbable.

- 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.
