San Diego standout, Shuriken Shannon is know for his smooth, laid-back, super authentic style, that’s consistently delivered with power, control, and raw authority. Shuriken’s artistic approach to spots has always allowed him to see new possibilities for his uniquely creative bag of tricks. The Shuriken Pro Model reflects his independence and hard earned perspective on his own skating. The series was developed as a collaboration with close friend, tattoo artist, and Washington Street fixture – Connor Getzlaff. Arbor is proud to be working with both Shuriken and Conner, and invites you to learn more about Shuriken and this new collab in this short vid.

Arbors’ commitment to women in skateboarding and snowboarding aligns with B4BC’s message that a healthy active lifestyle is your best means of breast cancer prevention.”
Professional surfer Ian Walsh travels the world chasing the best waves and competing at surfing’s highest level. Just 12 years ago Walsh found a new passion, snowboarding. Join him as he meets up with longtime friend and pro snowboarder, Mark Carter and they get barreled in Jackson Hole.
Our original boards were built using a limited supply of sustainably sourced Koa Wood, which is endemic to Hawaii. The Hawaiians used Koa to create the first surfboards 1,000 years ago, making Koa the legacy precursor material that led to modern boardsports.
For 20 some years, we’ve held onto a small amount of our original stock of Koa. At the double-decade mark, the time was right to crack open the vault and create some tributes to the craftsmanship traditions that underpin everything we do.

The Arbor Collective was created by a group of us that grew up along the Los Angeles County Coast in the 80s. Life was about surfing, skating, and going for it as hard and often as we could. By the end of the decade we had all started snowboarding and quickly became fixated on the possibilities that this new sport had opening up.
