Arbor Welcomes Curtis Woodman

Arbor Snowboards is proud to welcome Curtis Woodman to their snowboard team. Woodman was born in Sacramento, California and currently resides in Truckee, California. “I’ve been a Curtis Woodman fan since the Neoproto days and I’m fired up to be working with him now,” says Arbor team director, Brad Farmer. “Curtis has a snowboarding ability and style that most can only dream of. If last season is any indication of where he’s headed, it’s going to be exciting to watch over the next couple of years. I believe he will be an amazing leader of the Arbor ‘Roots’ snowboard program and I can’t wait to see what he does in the backcountry this season.”

“I have honestly heard that I should ride for Arbor more times than I can count and I feel blessed to be a part of such an amazing family of snowboarders,” says Woodman. “Arbor is raw and environmentally friendly, what else could I want from a brand?” Curtis is a big fan of Arbor’s traditional wood topsheet look. “There’s nothing better than looking down at a beautiful piece of wood underneath your feet. I like being in my element on my Arbor Element snowboard.”

Look for Woodman to be filming for a major film project this coming season. He will be riding Arbor’s Blacklist, Draft and Element RX snowboards as well as spending a season testing the Arbor Abacus splitboard that’s due to be released in 2013.

Arbor’s goal is to create a higher level of function and relevance in the most responsible way possible. The end result must be improved style and performance, with significantly reduced impact on the environment. “We all need clean air to skate, clean water to surf, and snow to ride…”
