Not your gutless fish. Travis has juiced up this Jackson Hole resort slasher into an apex all terrain tech shred predator. A long oaty nose combined with a powerful poppy contact maximizing short radius “Whale Tail Technology”. A tight 7m trench gougin' sidecut. Wide enough to allow you to really put it on a hardpack rail with no toe drag and oat pillows like a dream but still narrow enough to be your daily driver all season long. Take it to AK, drop BC pillow stacks or blow minds at the home resort all season. A mammal to eat all fish. TR. Award winning!
VOLUME SHIFTED, RIDE THIS BOARD 3-6 CM SHORTER THAN YOUR NORMAL BOARD.
ALL MOUNTAIN / FREERIDE - DIRECTIONAL
• DREAM DIRECTIONAL SHAPE AND CONTOUR FOR WHAT TRAVIS CALLS FUN
• APEX FREERIDE POW RIPPER MEETS RESORT SLASHING DAILY DRIVER
• FLOATY NOSE, TIGHT SIDECUT, MAXIMUM POWER TAIL

Longtime Lib Tech ripper and amazing artist Mike Parillo and Travis worked together on this years “nature x science” inspired Travis Rice collection and have created what feels like the most amazing snowboard line up ever. Mike’s realistic overhead interpretation of the oceans apex predator Orca backs up the first two iconic graphics with a huge splash. This years base eye patch markings are inspired by our local resident Orca K-37 aka “Rainshadow”. This one hits close to home with K-37 being son of K-12 aka “Sequim” our Mervin MFG hometown.

MERVIN HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN ENVIRONMENTALLY MINDED COMPANY and focused on minimizing our manufacturing impact on the planet. We are really excited to take a step in a new direction with Travis and partner with the Orca Conservancy in their efforts to prevent the the extinction of the Southern Resident Killer Whales. FOR CENTURIES, THREE UNIQUE PODS OF KILLER WHALES HAVE THRIVED OFF THE COAST OF WASHINGTON, spending summers in the interior waters of the Salish Sea, feasting on chinook salmon. For years these amazing creatures have thrilled and inspired us all but, chinook
salmon are in trouble–with less than one percent of their historic abundance in the Pacific Northwest. The beloved local orca whales’ fate has followed the salmon. The Orca Conservancy (OC) is focused on preserving the endangered Southern Resident Killer Whale population of our home waters of Puget Sound and the Salish Sea.
MERVIN AND TRAVIS WILL BE DONATING A PORTION OF THE SALE OF EACH ORCA SNOWBOARD TO THE ORCA CONSERVANCY
