The Arbor Collective's 2011 Line
Venice, CA - May 10, 2011 - The Arbor Collective is pleased to announce that its 2011 line of skateboards is now available. Arbor continues to develop sustainable riding solutions that blend responsible materials, next-level technology and real world art into the best designs available. “Today we offer a wider range of products and perspective than at any time in our past,” says Arbor Skateboards President, Bob Carlson. Arbor is presenting five series of skateboards including the Carver, Concrete, Mini, Roller and Freeride Collections offering something for everyone. “We are very excited about the variety of skateboards in the line and what we feel is the best artist and graphic presentation yet,” says Carlson. “There are several new decks within our collections that we truly feel rounds out our entire offering.”
Highlights in the new line include the Mission featuring big wave surfer and team rider, Brian Conley, a top graphic Bamboo Fish with artist Tadashi Ura, the Vügenhausen team freeride skateboard which is the “weapon of choice” for team rider, James Kelly featuring the art of Haunted Euth, the new Bat Tail shape and Rally cork top, the Whiskey street decks and art from the likes of Dave Kinsey, Sylvia Ji, Max Grundy and many more. Arbor is also bringing a strong offering of components including Gullwing and Paris trucks and Arbor’s Slalom, Street and Team Series wheels.
