Mervin Manufacturing home of Lib Tech, GNU, Roxy and Bent Metal is a leading designer and manufacturer of snowboarding, NASing, surfing and skateboarding products built at the world’s most environMENTAL factory by people who ride them. Mervin Manufacturing was founded by snowboarders Mike Olson and Pete Saari in 1977. In an industry where virtually every other snowboard, ski, skateboard, and surfboard company has moved production to China or offshore, Mervin is the longest running and last major board building factory in the USA. Based out of Carlsborg, Washington, between the rugged Olympic and Cascade Mountain Ranges, Mervin is a direct link between riding and manufacturing.

Gnu was created in a hypothermic induced delirium in the early 80?s by Mike Olson who has been building snowboards since 1977. Mike Pioneered deep carving sidecuts and too many other odd things to mention here. Today Mike and Pete still head up Gnu with structure and intelligence provided by Ryan Hollis and Chris “Two Cent Gary” Garrett. Tim Karpinski hosts Club Weird, and with Shawn “The Bish” Bishop at his side, directs all visuals. Barrett Christy super ripper heads up our Gnu Girls program, Banked Slalom Pro champ Paul Ferrel runs the Backdoor binding program, Jesse “The Beast” Burtner focuses on team and marketing, four time Baker Banked Slalom champ Temple Cummins is our accessible freeride Billy Goater and Olympic Mtn split specialist, Danny rips and makes TV shows, Forest and Forrest are getting weird, Kaitlyn is really really good, Jamie Anderson wins everything, Cody is killing it. Of course every Gnu Banana, Magne-traction “joy stick” is handbuilt by the snowboarders with jobs at Mervin Manufacturing in Washington State just like they were in the beginning… now even weirder. Dude what happened last night?
