The Arbor x Iron & Resin collaboration merges some of the things that epitomize what we each stand for. We share a love for the outdoors, riding with friends, and the adventures that come with getting there. We worked with Iron & Resin to create 100 limited edition, hand made custom Arbor Pilsner Skateboards along with a custom Moto Skate Pannier that converts to a backpack, to carry your skate and enough gear for a night camping under the stars, or your daily commute to school or work.
A few of the Whiskey Project skaters jumped in the van and headed up to Northern California for a few days of camping, skating, and hanging with the crew.
Levi Green has figured out a way to live the skateboarders dream of skating different cities around the world. Recently, Levi has split his time between Vancouver in the summer, Mexico in the winter, and trips to California in between, skating amazing roads in perfect weather year round. All that time on board is evident in Levi’s relaxed style, while skating gnarly roads and chunder pavement. Levi is always down to skate, and his bags are always packed for the next adventure, which makes him a great addition to the Arbor team!
Whiskey Project skater, Sean Imes, traveled out to Copenhagen last month to kick it with friends and skate a new city. Filmer Jais Hansen showed Sean and the homie Jared Cleland all that this great city has to offer, bringing them to amazing spots and sharing the laid-back vibe of the city. Transport yourself to Denmark for the next few minutes and watch what Sean put down during his week in Copenhagen.
When Towell isn’t in the hills of Santa Barbara he can usually be found at a local break working on his surfing. “Lately I’ve been drawing a lot of inspiration from surfing while I’m on my skateboard. Its so fun trying to pump my skate and generate speed the same way I do in the water, its also opened my eyes to some different lines on the roads.”
Since surfing sidewalks is where skateboarding originated from, we thought it would be cool to take that surf/skate mentality to the next level and showcase Tyler doing both. After seeing Towell’s style on some of Southern California’s fastest roads juxtaposed with footage from the water the translation between his skating and surfing becomes clear.
