ARBOR SNOWBOARDS FILM NIGHT – COSA NOSTRA

Come one come all. Friday night, September 22nd U.S. Outdoor will be hosting Arbor Snowboards first feature length film, “Cosa Nostra.” The Arbor team has spent two years making this movie. This event is for all ages, so bring the family. Everything is free. D.J. Klavical will be spinning, beginning at 5:30 till the start of the film; and then after the film till the party ends. Three riders from Arbor will be here; Frank April, Mark Carter, and Erik Leon. Hang out and talk snowboarding. There will also be a photo gallery up on the wall that coincides with the movie. This free event is sponsored by Rainer. And don’t forget the giveaways. There is an Arbor/Rainier snowboard collaboration and a surfboard by Catch Surf that will be raffled off, just to name a few. Also, we will have happy hour deals throughout the store between 5:30 and 7:30, so feel free to check out the whole shop.

A word to the wise, get here early to reserve your camp chair with a Rainier beer in the convenient cup holder.

Arbor Snowboards: Sustainable, Real Wood Topsheets

For over a decade The Arbor Collective, proud makers of snowboards and skateboards, have taken considerable pride in their sustainable business practices and by extension their real wood snowboard topsheets: The Power Ply. They are lighter and they are stronger. Furthermore, the process in which Arbor Snowboards create their Real Wood topsheets “…allows Arbor to reduce our reliance on chemically treated fiberglass and petroleum-based resin by up to 20%” while enhancing performance and providing the rider with a look that is as timeless as it is progressive. It is no surprise that the snow, skate and surf industries leave a large carbon footprint, but Arbor is a company that is cognitive of this fact (as are a growing number of manufacturers) and thus makes it their responsibility to reduce that carbon footprint from that of Big Foot to a more manageable adult human being. Real Wood. Real Talk. Pioneering consistent sustainable practices will prove essential to preserving the longevity of our beloved pastimes. The video below gives you a glimpes into what goes into making the Arbor Snowboards Real Wood Topsheets.
