So if your a hater of these boards I'm curious to the reasons behind it ? To each is own if u hate em more power to you I would jus like to hear the reasons behind it.
They are not. Its this website all these douche bags care about is Never Summer boards. Which are great boards but I rarely see them in NW. So I guess its a territory thing. I dont know. Fanboys can be so annoying.

I've not a huge fan of the CRC profiles I've tried, so I have fairly limited experience with both NS and Mervin. However when I did decide to buy one I went with NS primarily because I had heard they are better built and more durable (I couldn't justify spending money on a board with such potential for damage to the nose and tail). I was also annoyed trying to research all the crazy names they have for their different profiles, but then again all companies make tweaks to their profile so at least Mervin has a name for them I guess. Anyway no hate here, just stating my reasons, but I'm also curious to hear the other side of the argument: For all the Mervin lovers out there, what is it (aside from the obvious magnetraction) that makes Mervin your top choice?

I guess the reason I mainly buy Mervin products is because they are Local to where I live and have been since the beginning, they give back to the community in various ways, have an excellent product line and are just plain cool!.... I've owned Mervin boards since 1990 and have about 10 right now...

Default Pro Mervin... Sort Of

So I've Ridden on my '14 Gnu 156 Space Case for 111 days up here at Mammoth. Although it was a low snow season it saw its fair share of riding. I do love my board but it has gotten pretty thrashed. the top sheet is busting a little on the tail and the base needs constant upkeep. It seems like I'm waxing everyday. BUT this board is my baby, it has handled everything I've thrown at it and more. I used to be a Forum Lifer (been strictly riding forum gear for 10 years) but since the company disbanded I had to look for a new company. I did extensive research and found that Mervin had the most variety and selection. Now I'm not Mr. Gotrocks so I was a little hesitant when I saw their strictly $500 and up retail price however, I had a hookup and wound up getting my space case for $300 brand new. This is the first Mervin board I have owned and I am fairly pleased with their product. I don't understand the brand hating thing. I don't like Burton because they decided to end Forum for good but that won't stop me from buying their products if need be.

^^just a reminder, Burton saved Forum from becoming a box store brand 8 years ago.

methinks you don't have a firm grasp on the issues that ultimately brought Forum down. Shitting on Burton for it is ignorant and laughable.
