Pete Saari & Mike Olson are some of the early pioneers in snowboarding.

Their skill and craftsmanship soon gained notoriety, with Mervin and its sister brands designing and building snowboards for Quicksilver/Roxy. Pete & Mike and their boards are known around the world for their attention to detail and artisanship – each board is designed, built, and shipped from their Washington state manufacturing site.
