Give your favorite peeps, or yourself, the gift of new skateboard/snow board gear born right here in Venice.
About: The Arbor Collective uses environmentally friendly natural materials to produce snowboards, skateboards, and bamboo apparel. Arbor was conceived in 1995 with a single snowboard skinned with a Hawaiian Koa wood topsheet. This unique look differentiated the brand from the rest of the industry and remains a theme within the line today. Arbor started producing skateboards with a similar look a few years later, which is now the strongest part of the brand. With shapes and sizes to accommodate every imaginable type of skateboarding there is something in the skateboard line for everyone! More recently, Arbor has started to offer an entire collection of sustainably produced bamboo-based apparel that offers comfort, breathability, performance, and style. Now headquartered in Venice, California Arbor strives to step up their game every season, bringing new artists, designers and friends on board to deliver a beautiful, environmentally friendly line of wood snowboards, skateboards, and apparel.
