mervin's hq is like a block or 2 from evo in seattle. i wish they'd get on board (<-see what i did there?) with what C3 did and open a showroom for all their products, but they probably won't cause of how close it is to evo. iirc, nitro was, if not still is, in seattle as well.

i've never understood why the fuck they moved out to fucking sequim either. wtf is in sequim beside fishing and the game farm (is that still even there)? yeah, great for surfing, but how long have they been making surf water boards? they used to be in tacoma and fife, which is only an hour-hour and a half to a couple hills, 2-2.5 hrs to stevens, and 2-2.5 hrs to westport where a lot of people go to surf. while i've still not made it out to hurricane ridge, i'd think the old location would make more sense, considering tacoma is a major sea port, for materials coming in and product going out. i'm no economist though, so wtf do i know?

I think that the move to Sequim was primarily motivated by how inexpensive the real estate for the facility is and how they can just do their own thing there, expand if/when they want to, build their own private skate park, etc.

i haven't been on FB for over 2 years, but that wall looks like it would be at vince snow's(?) house. i remember he was always posting like 2 new boards every week, even more than parker in his hay-day. lol

Does Mervin sell its plastic board sleeves/bags separately? Or is there anywhere else I can buy the similar sleeves for different sizes?

i feel like every people weren’t feeling the shape this year? idk why. 

and re:bags, i bought a few vst branded ones that are pretty identical to Mervin’s a few seasons back. not sure where they came from, but that must mean they’re out there somewhere.

The SPAM is the one Mervin board that I actually want, it's just too small.

I’d bet most people like the aesthetic of the first SPAM more, and it seemed hyped up out of the gate. When it came out, what made me think it was cool was Airblaster + I think I’d like it + even Temple rides it

but, Mullair, it’s just suh goooood to me.

Hyperkyarve... rad shape, wrong bend 😛 just kidding. Along with the swallowtail carver, I’d definitely like to try one, if there were one around to borrow..

I just saw the new spam last week and it didn't give me any feels whatsoever like the first one did. Don't like the tail shape nearly as much and the silver topsheet was just super underwhelming in person. 

I still really wanna try a billy goat
