New to the Gnu line this year from the Washington state board builders at Mervin Manufacturing is Beauty (left) and The Beast (right), directional twin pro models for husband-and-wife shred duo Barrett Christy and Temple Cummins. How important is geography to this pair? "Living in Sequim works really well for Temple and I. We're close to the factory, snow and surf on the Olympic Peninsula and can make any changes with the board builders directly," says Christy.
