About Arbor Collective


INSIGHTS into Arbor’s 20 year commitment to craftsmanship and environment in the production of the world’s best snowboarding and skateboarding products. A dedication that has ensured Arbor is synonymous with performance, quality, sustainable materials, and the preservation of the planet.

HIGHLIGHTS of life lived in the pursuit of snowboarding, skateboarding, and the good times that come with getting there, being there, and riding with friends. Moments brought to life by the athletes, artists, and ambassadors who share Arbor’s ethos and underpin our Collective.


To High Places by Narrow Roads.

Since ‘95, The Arbor Collective has been a growing cooperative of designers, artists and friends, whose shared goal is building rideable and wearable things from the best stuff possible. From day one, it’s been good times, all day, every day, almost without fail. Along the way, we’ve managed to combine a little forward thinking design and old school craftsmanship, with a serious commitment to the environment.



Since day one, The Arbor Collective has donated to groups that protect and restore forests. We call this program “Returning Roots.”

Our donations primarily go to preserving the Koa forests of Hawaii, which allows us to give back to the planet, and to the people and place that gave us surfing, skateboarding, and snowboarding. The native Hawaiians invented surfing as early as 1,000 years ago, on boards made from Koa wood. The sports we love today tie directly to this heritage.

The Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative is our principal Returning Roots partner. This group is not just planting trees; they’re thoroughly rebuilding forests from the ground up. As of today, they’ve planted over 300,000 Koa trees, on 800 acres of former forestland, with the full range of native understory plants.

The Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative is helping Arbor to do our part in the protection of forests, while we strike an important balance with our use of sustainably sourced materials.
