Twin Asymmetrical Freestyle Banana

Award winning “Pickle Technology” balances through asymmetry. Your body is asymmetric, your snowboard should be designed to work in harmony with what nature created. Pickles, with a deeper heel side sidecut and unique asym core, are designed around the different turning mechanics required for heel side turns and toe side turns and are perfect for progressive park/freestyle riding and duck stances in all terrain. Banana between your feet for easy riding, catch-free park freestyle performance, and unreal float in powder. Magne-Traction for unreal edge-hold everywhere. Handbuilt by snowboarders at Mervin Mfg. using fast growing eco woods and environmentally friendly construction techniques, the Pickle is some delicious green technology!

  • About the Art

    This graphic was a happening between two visual experimenters: Matt French and Gnu art director Tim Karpinski. Collaborating back and forth from different states of mind they arrived at a place where it was dark and bright and the sky light up the cosmos. Timothykarpinski.com & Mattfrenchart.com.

Do you like to get weird, if so why and what do you do?
I was born that way at an early age. Once I got all borned, I just carted my weirds around on a skateboard to all sorts of places around the whole earth, like my drumset…and my great big small living room.

Do you work in a studio / office / in the park?
I don’t know if you’d call it work.

Whats an average day in your life right now?
Wednesday Optimist / Pessimist? Realist? Weirdest? yeah

Do make a living off your art? How do you pay all your bar tabs?
Yes. I art for $. I don’t drink bar tabs. I like Pepsi…the ones in the glass bottles with real sugar.

What does Gnu mean to you?
When I was a freshman, I got the tour of highschool from a Gnu pro named Jeff.

Besides artmaking, what do you enjoy doing?
I like the skate of boarding and the sound of music.

What gets you out of bed in the morning, what inspires you?
Yelling children.

Can you tell us a little about the graphic you did for GNU?
I think I did a couple unless I didn’t….in which case I made either more or less.

Currently listening to?
Siouxsie and the Banshees

Currently looking at?
A random smattering of design detritus spread about my visual real estate with carelessness

Favorite website or blog?
I like books made from paper between covers. I like books with pictures of animals a lot. Comics have always been fun. I do stuff for Color magazine.
