Since 1995, Arbor’s mission has been simple and unchanged; blend innovative design and traditional craftsmanship, with sustainable materials and construction methods. We believe this is the best way to deliver quality and performance to the pursuit of snowboarding, skateboarding, and the good times we seek along the way.

We launched Arbor in 1995 with our snowboard line, and a dialog about our focus on sustainability, and its importance to snowboarding. We were the first to replace the standard plastic top, with responsibly sourced wood veneer, significantly improving performance. We pioneered the use of bamboo, bio-plastic, and other recycled, reclaimed, and renewable alternatives. For over two decades we’ve turned rider-oriented design into the highest quality, hand-crafted snowboarding products possible, while drastically minimizing our impact on the planet.

Shortly after launching Arbor, we the introduced our skateboard line and carried forth our sustainability efforts and its importance in action sports. With the skate line, we pioneered bio-urethane and expanded our use of recycled materials and responsibly sourced wood and bamboo. Our mission is to build premium lifestyle skateboards, with the smallest possible environmental footprint.

We expanded into soft goods because much of life happens between where we live and the places we go to ride. We knew our efforts around sustainability would be welcomed in a line of products made for getting there, enjoying the great outdoors, and going for it with friends. We focus on timeless, utilitarian design, and a built-to-last approach. We utilize a range of sustainable fabrics and processes. As with all Arbor products, a portion of sales goes to our Returning Roots program.
