Arbor was founded in 1995 to make snowboards and skateboards that epitomize our commitment to performance, craftsmanship, and the environment.
Our original boards were built using a limited supply of sustainably sourced Koa Wood, which is endemic to Hawaii. The Hawaiians used Koa to create the first surfboards 1,000 years ago, making Koa the legacy precursor material that led to modern boardsports.
For 20 some years, we’ve held onto a small amount of our original stock of Koa. At the double-decade mark, the time was right to crack open the vault and create some tributes to the craftsmanship traditions that underpin everything we do.
Our first offering is a collab with Buck Knives. Since 1902, the Buck Family has been making durable, highly innovative knives in the USA. We are proud to partner with a company that for four generations has stood for craftsmanship, quality, and field-tested function.
The Arbor x Buck Knives collab is a sturdy, compact skinner designed to be light and versatile.
