Believe it or not, Arbor was actually started as a snowboard company in 1995 and didn’t get into making skateboards until 3 years later. Dedicated to protecting the environment since day one, Arbor uses sustainable building practices and materials in their manufacturing process. From recycled steel edges and sustainably-sourced wood cores, to their bio plastic top sheets, you can feel good about riding a handmade board that was built with the planet’s best interests in mind.
Offering boards with both camber and rocker profiles, Arbor’s lineup spans the full spectrum of riding styles. With so many different types of rocker profiles on the market, it’s good to note how Arbor distinguishes itself. Arbor’s signature “Parabolic Rocker” is a true rocker profile that reduces the amount of rocker towards the nose and tail so that edges can be engaged faster as performance is demanded from the rider. They pair this with their “Grip Tech” side cut which adds extra contact points around the binding inserts, giving you great edge hold without taking away from the playful nature of rocker. Love the Earth? Love snowboarding? Love Arbor.
