Arbor Collective Blunt KoaEvery Arbor board is known for is beautiful makeup of choice woods and components. Most gain this appreciation from the clear re-grip on the topside that allows you to see and admire the wood-grain while your feet are stuck to it like glue as you bomb that high mph hill. Well the Arbor Blunt Koa Skateboard is no exception in that it is topped with a finish ply of sustainably harvested Koa wood creating a very unique look. The ‘warrior wood’ is prized for its rich colors and unique grains and shares a history with surfing in that it was used 1,000 years ago by the native Hawaiians to build the original surfboards. Although the bottom graphic might have you thinking the Arbor artist were inspired from the people off the streets of OB; this thing is ready for any hill you throw at it or simply just push less and go farther. Cover some miles on this one and with the large kick-tail soaring this Arbor off curbs or over cracks will be smooth as butter.

The idea of going green has recently swept the nation. Companies are pushing environmental sustainability, finding new ways to manufacture products in a way that has less impact on the environment. Going green has become a trendy way to take social action against environmental negligence. For all of you who live a “green” lifestyle, then hold the organic cotton—there are better alternatives yet! Arbor is a company that prides itself on environmental sustainability. Their full line of clothes and skateboards incorporate the use of bamboo as a substitute for cotton and wood.

Since 1999 Arbor has been producing skateboards that use bamboo in addition to sustainably sourced maple ply.

Arbor’s incorporation of bamboo strengthens the skateboard deck and improves its durability. Their unique boards have been featured in Surfshot and Transworld Skateboarding as “must haves” because of their design, durability, and performance.

In their clothes, Arbor uses a blend of bamboo and organic cotton to maximize comfort, functionality and sustainability. Arbor’s most popular selling blend is 70% bamboo and 30% organic cotton.

In addition to all the environmental benefits, Bamboo is smoother, more breathable, and absorbs water better than cotton. Bamboo fabrics have better UV protection than cotton and it also will help regulate the body’s temperature whether hot or cold. Bamboo even has natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties that reduce the possibility skin irritations and odor. If that weren’t enough already to make the switch to Arbor’s bamboo-based clothes, take a look at their popular design.
