Description: GNU Space Case Snowboard
A futuristic look and feel have riders everywhere raving about the GNU Space Case Snowboard! Time and time again we've seen that GNU is never afraid to push the envelope in terms of new snowboard design, and this Space Case board certainly follows that tradition. The Space Case features asymmetrical contact angles that limit edge contact on the heel side of the board to increase overall speed, as well as a mid level flex that is perfect for whatever challenges you choose to conquer. A sintered base and unique pickle barrel core finish off the board and help this Space Case stand out among the competition.

Contacted Mervin: They don’t think it is a warranty issue.
Has somebody else such a problem?
Generally I suggest that riders with size 11+ boots ride boards that have a waist width of 25.8cm or wider UNLESS the boots have Shrinkage Reduction Technology. The board you were looking at is close, but take a look at some wide boards.
Below are a few of my favorite.
