The 2013 Liquid Force Drive features a full wood core, beautiful graphics, and LF’s Liquid Rails. It has a fairly wide outline and a flat bottom shape. Liquid Force is offering this board for a very low price including pads and straps.
Our testers reported good upwind and jumping performance and a stable and forgiving ride.
Our test Drive came with the Liquid Force Luxury straps. The strap and pad installs as a single unit and might be the easiest to install pad/strap system of the test. The pads feature an adjustable/removable toe bar that testers seemed to like as long as it was adjusted properly.
