Distribution will be handled exclusively through Mervin Reps. Board graphics can be seen at www.gnu.com/roxy.

“This board is just a taste of what’s to come”, added Hughes. Next season we’re building a matching binding, and adding the already successful Roxy boot into the line”.

The Roxy board is designed for beginner to advanced rider and comes in a 137, 143, 147, 151, 154, and 157cm sizes.
