Twin Jib Freestyle
The B-Street is a playful park slayer that’s become a solid staple of the women’s line. It’s a jib focused twin freestyle Banana that can still perform outside of the park thanks to award winning Magne-Traction technology. Go ahead and dull your edges down, you will still be able to hold your edge and carve like those hard booters if you want to after hitting up that urban rail. The B-Street has a fun, poppy flex that’s perfect for freestyle and it won’t turn to mush after beating it down on metal and concrete if that’s what you’re into. Combine a little attitude with this classic Banana and there is nowhere you can’t go. Streets, mountains, or parks… the world is your playground with the B-Street.

- About the Art
Nick Russian is forever creating masterpieces. He has a special relation- ship with his paintbrush, canvas, computer and something magical always seems to show up around the time we choose graphics. Nick’s art has graced Mervin boards since the beginning, and this is his 6th B-Street graphic. Unlike the past years, this one does not feature a visible woman, but no doubt Nick was influenced by the feminine powers of rock stars, models, and leading ladies as he was creating it.

Name: Nick Russian
Age: My kids are catching up to me
Location: I live on the Olympic Pen.
Astrological sign: I want to be comet
Medium: I try to use up all my supplies before I get new ones, it gets unorganized going back, and forth between all the different mediums so I try to check out the stuff I am using for awhile to get the best experience. In school they teach you to use a variety of mediums, and that helps artistsfigure out what will be best used for their style.
Website: It is hard to see art I like where I live, so I try to check out a lot of different art on the internet, it is inspiring, and humbling to see, but it is still not as good as seeing it in person. A lot of art has all ready been done, but it is nice to see so many young, and old people going for it. I use a blog to show my art, noexactrules.blogspot.com
Do you like to get weird, if so why and what do you do, if not why not?
When I was growing up it used to be weird to be a skateboarder, so I guess I am not so weird anymore.
Do you work in a studio / office / in the park?
I have always done my art in my home, and I just have a basic cave style set up to work in. I try to design my art based on the space I have available to do it in. Get weird?I try not get to weird, other people might get freaked.
Do you make a living off your art? How do you pay all your bar tabs?
I haven’t sold out yet, not that I have anything to sell, but no one is really buying.
What does Gnu mean to you?
The Great Northwest Universe of sparkling stars.
What gets you out of bed in the morning, what inspires you?
Waking up early before the day starts, drinking coffee
Can you tell us a little about the graphic you did for GNU?
Have you ever watched Stanley Kubrik movies? Considering the painting used was not meant for a snowboard graphic it turned out beautiful, and it complements the original art pretty good.
Thanks to all the people who keep in touch, and are interested in my art happenings.
