Living in the cracks behind the hype of today's Venice, there is still a kid who started with nothing and has given everything to a life built on skating. Pushing past the hordes of tourists, the transplanted wealth, the performers, the hipsters, the valet class - past the muck, the grime, and the grease - you'll find a core layer of youth, skating hard on and off the grid. For Arbor, they're helping hold down skating's street legacy, with talent that burns like that first pull off granddad's bourbon. These individuals are making their mark with a distilled set of tricks crafted away from the limelight in the broken alleys, forgotten infrastructure, and public parks of our distracted, overly plugged-in world. The Whiskey Project is for them - the best young skaters from in-and-around Venice. A project they created, they run, and they front. A place to tell their stories, highlight their lines, and play their part in showing what skating's roots were, are, and will always be. Raise a glass and enjoy The Whiskey Project. Look for individual parts and other videos from The Whiskey Project coming soon.

The Whiskey




THE WHISKEY & WHISKEY LTD

The Whiskey is our street design and features our tried and true bamboo/maple blend for light-weight performance, extra pop, and added durability. The Whiskey features artwork from Eric Waetzig and the Limited Edition features the Art of Sylvia Ji. Sylvia Ji's artistic voice is as unique as the times we live in. Her work is known for its haunting expression of love, lust, and decay. The Arbor Collective has worked with this powerful Los Angeles based artist for the last four years building toward this first complete collection. The expanded Whiskey street series was the ideal place to highlight the suggestive art of Sylvia Ji.


OUR MATERIALS

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.

WATER BASED FINISHES: All Arbor skateboards are produced using a water-based sanding sealer to avoid polluting the air we breathe, especially when skating. Available as deck only: 6 Plys of Sustainable Maple with 1 Ply of Bamboo
