Above Photo: Born in Sydney, Nanami Cowdroy's artistic roots reflect both her native Australian and mixed Japanese-European heritage. Nanami's blend of complex characters and highly detailed objects create a juxtaposition of the foreign and familiar. Her subjects are organic, yet exude a strength and depth; the perfect combination for our bamboo designs.
BAMBOO: Mankind's most sustainable building material. Bamboo is incredibly strong, yet flexible and easy to shape. By adding bamboo as a deck-side power ply, we create a hybrid maple construction that has a clean Zen flavor, nice return, and long lasting durability.
WOOD: All of our wood material comes from sustainable sources of supply. All wood by-product created during the production of our skateboards is reclaimed for use in other Arbor products or by outside companies. This allows Arbor to stretch an important resource, while helping to reduce the strain on landfills and forests.
LUCID GRIP: Lucid grip is made with long-lasting crushed recycled glass. This ultra clear re-grip surface allows the deck's natural grain and color to remain highly visible, while providing better performance than silica bead alternatives.
WATER BASED FINISHES: All Arbor skateboards are produced using a water-based sanding sealer to avoid polluting the air we breathe, especially when skating.
RECYCLED PLASTIC RISERS: All Arbor completes are shipped with recycled plastic risers, which allows us to reduce our dependence on petroleum-based plastics, while helping the effort to stop the proliferation of plastic pollution.
