NW Mervin Factory Tour
On April 11th and 12th a select crew of NW Mervin Mfg retailers / rad bros hitched a ride on the Grease Bus out to the Olympic Peninsula to tour the Mervin Mfg Factory and get some good old Olympic powder.
Mervin Mfg. has been making snowboards and skateboards in the great NW since 1987. Makers of Lib Technologies, Gnu and Roxy… we craft each by hand. Only 23 short miles from the factory is a mecca of powder and well earned runs leading back to the road where the Grease Bus was there to pick us up with petroleum free power. A perfect way to test a freshly made shred stick and get Experimental…
The Oregon crew were picked up in Portland for a tour up I5
Meet up at the Mervin Factory for a tour lead by Eco Mervin icon: Norm Nelson
