Near Canada, USA (March 10, 2014) – Congratulations to GNU Girls Kaitlyn Farrington and Jamie Anderson for their incredible Gold Medal Olympic performances! Magic was made in Sochi with their combination of style, skills, attitude and their award winning Gnu boards. Mervin is so proud to have joined them on their road to fun, and we look forward to the journey ahead. Theirs is a definitive victory for snowboarding, for women, and for the USA.
#1 in the Olympics became more than a slogan in 2014. Gnu has been at every winter Olympics since snowboarding became an Olympic sport. The boards that helped Jamie and Kaitlyn achieve their Olympic golds are handbuilt by Mervin Manufacturing on the Olympic Peninsula in the USA. Jamie achieved balance through asymmetry in slopestyle on herLadies Choice with A.S.S. Pickle Tech and Kaitlyn made magic in the halfpipe on her B-Prowith C3 Camber dominant contours. Patented Magne-Traction on all Gnu boards turns ice, slush, powder, groomers and crud into pure gold. Danny Kass twice won Olympic Silver in halfpipe on his revolutionary serrated edges. Jamie and Kaitlyn won gold this season on equally unique and revolutionary board designs. Gold was found in epic proportions on Mt Weird. Congratulations Jamie Anderson and Kaitlyn Farrington!
Thank you Gnu supporters and dealers for making it all possible.
