We launched Arbor in 1995 with our snowboard line, and a dialog about our focus on sustainability, and its importance to snowboarding. We were the first to replace the standard plastic top, with responsibly sourced wood veneer, significantly improving performance. We pioneered the use of bamboo, bio-plastic, and other recycled, reclaimed, and renewable alternatives. For over two decades we’ve turned rider-oriented design into the highest quality, hand-crafted snowboarding products possible, while drastically minimizing our impact on the planet.
Since day one, a portion of the sales proceeds has been reinvested in reforestation and forest conservation, which has allowed us to plant more trees over the years than we used to produce the boards.
We have always considered the planet in the production of our products. From the start, we committed to donating a portion of every sale to environmental conservation. Our efforts involve the protection and restoration of forests, putting roots in the ground. We focus on the Koa forests of Hawaii as the best way to give back to the people and place at the roots of the surf, skate, snow experience. Today, Arbor is only brand in action sports restoring forests, rather than just planting trees. Learn more
SATORI by Bryan Iguchi
“I’m making a conscious effort to bring balance to my life and symmetry to my snowboarding and I feel like the Satori is the answer. I am growing and evolving my intentions on the mountain and this is the board that matches that... My thought is to design a short wide, pow-loving board. It’s freestyle-focused, with a deep sidecut, Grip Tech, and a medium flex with a stable tail. Exaggerated Uprise Fenders and long, drawn-out ramping nose to give it additional lift in the pow and give it a more friendly fell. I want to go out and ride all conditions and just have fun", Bryan Iguchi
