Arborís multi-dimensional long skate - the Hybrid was designed with a wide mid-section, concave profile, and rounded kick tail/nose to deliver both longboard stability and real flat-ground and park performance. Arborís Art Director, Joel Woodman created a graphic for the Koa Hybrid that reflects the duality of life - a reality thatís found in this shape.
Seven Plys of Sustainably Sourced Hardrock Maple - Maple provides the best blend of durability and lightweight performance. It's also readily available and affordable, which allows us to offer a price point that is uncommonly low for an environmentally friendly alternative.
Finish Ply of Sustainably Sourced Hawaiian Koa - Koa's more densely packed fibers add important structure, which improves return, while providing a one-of-a-kind grain pattern on each deck. Koa wood was used by the Hawaiians to build the 1st surfboards 600+ years ago.
Recycled Glass Re-Grip - Each deck is gripped with long-lasting crushed recycled glass. This ultra clear grip surface allows the deckís natural grain and color to remain highly visible, while providing better performance than silica bead alternatives.
Water-Based Finishes - All Arbor skates are produced using a water-based sanding sealer and final finish to help protect the air we breathe, especially while skating.
Recycled Plastic Risers - All Arbor completes are shipped with recycled plastic risers, which allow us to reduce our dependence on petroleum-based plastics, while contributing to a reduction in the use of landfills and the proliferation of plastic pollution.
Reclaimed Wood By-Product - All wood by-product created during the production of our skates is reclaimed for use in other Arbor products or by outside companies. This allows Arbor to stretch an important resource, while helping to reduce strain on landfills and forestlands.
