Arbor Longboards Review – What is the Best Arbor Longboard?November 9, 2014
We have been asked by numerous visitors to complete an Arbor Lonbgoards Review, so we thought we’d do so. Longboards from Arbor are famous for their unique feel, appearance and raw performance. These boards are made of Hawaiian Koa wood which are very popular in the history of surfing and also the history of Hawaii in general. Koa wood can only be spotted on the main Island of Hawaii, mainly due to the elevation that it generally grows at. So here is our Arbor longboards review and we have reviewed four of the best longboards from this brand.
