Drew is riding the gator Reaper 42, one of Gatorboard's new skates out for 08. "I was really nervous about riding a new board after spending two years on a board that rode like nothing I have ever ridden. But after a few sets on the new Reaper, I found myself. The board is a little wider in the tip and tail and it generates a really good pop. For a larger board (42") it spins and flips like a 40" board but is a lot nicer going wake-to-wake", stated Drew.
