We started the skateboard division in 1998. For years we had been turning old snowboards into skates to bomb hills when snow and surf was hard to find. We 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 our snowboards. Arbor Skateboards – handmade, quality woodcraft.
