Celebrating 25 Years With Koa
Arbor was launched in 1995 with a small collection of environmentally friendly snowboards. Each board was made with a sustainable Hawaiian Koa wood top, and other alternative materials. Over the next 15 years, Koa became our calling card, anchoring the Brand’s vibe, and our sustainability, craftsmanship, and performance message. The Koa was always secured by our founders, who believe the best way to ensure something is sustainable, is to know its source...
25 Years of Arbor Snowboards
Since 1995, our mission at Arbor has been simple and unchanged; blend innovative design and traditional craftsmanship, with sustainable materials and construction methods. We believe this is the right way to deliver quality and performance to the pursuit of snowboarding, skateboarding, and all the good times that happen along the way. Through the years, we’ve taken great pride in highlighting athletes and artists who support our approach, and contributed so significantly to our efforts. This mindful, more collective style ensures the planet is always considered as we develop unique products for chasing life’s great lines. In 2020, we mark our 25th Anniversary. We’re proud to have been the first Action Sports brand specifically of outdoor minded skaters, snowboarders, surfers, and travelers who understand that protecting the planet is about looking after our shared playground. The Arbor family would like to thank you for your support, input, and partnership through the years. It’s been humbling, and a hell of a lot of fun. Here’s to the next 25 years, and a continued commitment to sustainability in our efforts to innovate, deliver performance, and expand on the craft approach to making snowboards, skateboards, and the related gear we need.
