Arbor started their skateboard division in 1998. For years, they had been turning old snowboards into skates to bomb hills when snow and surf were hard to find. They rode at odd hours and freaked a few people out. In the end, those late nights launched a program that now offers a huge range of shapes for all types of skating. As you would expect, materials, shaping, art, and design all come together in the same tradition as their snowboards. Arbor Skateboards – handmade, quality woodcraft.
