A drop-through board designed to get sideways with lots of features to help you stay that way. This master of the slopes includes 1/2“ of rocker, mellow tub concave, and a slightly larger width.
The Highground is a tapered topmount that was designed to be a force on the racecourse; a speedboard that features a range of wheelbase positions, unique concave shaping techniques, and carefully placed flares that provide leverage points, and keep you locked in.
With just enough direction, the team manages to meet up with Zarosh Eggleston in the sticks of Central California. An hour of dirt roads later, and they’re at his ranch enjoying his DIY spot, the relaxed lifestyle, and the local watering hole.
Another big weekend was celebrated by Arbor’s Skate Team. James Kelly won the Angie’s Curves Race in San Diego on his Arbor Vugenhausen, with Duke Degen taking second place on the new Highground.

The van moves on, and so does the Arbor Skateboards team.
MuirSkate Longboard Shop Team Rider Duke “Double D” Degen is fastened steadily to a healthy diet including, but not limited to, Oranges, Avocados, Arizona Herbal Tea, and… You guessed it… Some downhill raditude. Duke’s setup in this video is an Arbor Vugenhausen with Aera Trucks and Rad Release Wheels. (Link below. ‘cept for Aera Trucks… We’re working on that part.)

Things get crowded and sketchy on a road with no name and center divider. Everyone stays safe and in their lane and the crew ends the day with a dune surfing session.
The Arbor Skateboards team is back on the road for Get Elevated 2012. In episode 1, they start their trek up the coast of California. Rising bright and early at Skate House in Los Angeles, they take off into the interior valley on their way up the Pacific Coast Highway.
Arbor Skateboards is preparing to release the followup to their successful Get Elevated video series released in 2011 with Get Elevated 2012. Follow James Kelly, Kody Noble, Max Myers, Duke Degen, Jimmy Riha, Adam Crigler, Kelly Carter, Casey Morrow, Eric Singer, Tyler Howell and all of their friends as they pack into a van head up the coast of California.
