Interview with Mervin Manufacturing Founder
I fondly remember the day I got my first Lib Tech over 10yrs ago, a Tear Yea. Sadly I barely got to ride it because one day my friend's little bro was the last one to load his board on the rack and...you know the rest. Undeterred, I've gone on to own at least a dozen Libs/Gnus since then. I also remember lusting after my homie's first-gen Gnu Altered Genetics after reading the description thinking, "WTF a snowboard company actually bred trees just to make this winter stick?" Then there were the countless confused faces when I tried to explain the new tech on my boards (stuff like BTX, MTX, etc...) when it was first introduced.
This article helped remind me why I've always supported this local company, back before buying local/American/environmental products was even on the radar let alone remotely cool
. My point is, hopefully this interview with Mike Olson might help clear up some of the hater bandwagon bs that seems to be floating around and is annoying as fuck. My only regret is not having the funds to be able to keep more Libs/Gnus in my quiver, but as we all know they're expensive and rarely can you find the right board/size/graphic on any kind of deep discount. You'll understand why if you read the article which is a long-ish read, but worth some toilet time for sure.
