Details

Our view:
We hadn't seen Drifters for a couple of years.

But now they're back with the Thermoplastic construction to give it that fresh pop until it dies.
Coming in at around 1400g it's a light board for it's size.

Thankfully it's 9" wide, which means you get enough leverage over the trucks and have plenty of room to get comfortable on.

Our recommendation for a setup is:
Independent 159 Trucks
Earthwing Slide A Wheels 62mm in 95a for bowls and control, or 58D for ultimate sideways action.
Zealous bearings

From Earthwing Skateboards:

If you know, you know.

The drifter has been a staple in tech-sliding for 10 years now.
We are bringing it back in the original 5ply thermolam construction.

This is a bigger deck, so if you are a6 footer looking for a healthy street deck, this is for you. It's stoopid light, slides like it's on glass (because it is), and is a super lively deck that will feel that way for the life of the deck.

35 x 8.9 (Alex from NS: See the additional info below for the specs we've measured on the boards!)
Thermolam 6ply 1/16th
1/4" nose / tail
16.25" wheelbase, new school hole pattern
