Arbor Snowboards Welcomes Ian Sams



Venice, CA – December 15, 2010 – Arbor Snowboards is proud to welcome Ian Sams to their national snowboard team. “I’ve been watching Ian over the last couple years and I’ve been amazed with the consistency of his style. He makes some of the most difficult tricks look simple and solid,” says Arbor team director, Brad Farmer. “He’s a staple in Bear Mountain’s Sunday In The Park videos and their movies and he’s on the come up. I couldn’t me more amped to welcome Ian to the Arbor family.”

“Arbor and I have a lot in common…we both love the greens,” says Sams. “They’re commitment to the environment and my commitment to hitting pipes, ripping bowls and preventing forest fires go together like Funions and the munchies. This season, I plan to hold it down at Bear Mountain filming for the Sunday’s and to head out on some urban missions around the country. I’m looking forward to riding at home and road tripping. Either way, I’ll be stacking in footy. Oh, for sure!”

Arbor was founded in 1995 on the assertion that solutions to many of today’s most difficult snow, skate, and apparel design challenges exist in the natural world. For 14 years, Arbor has built on the belief of replacing, environmentally harmful materials with ecologically based, natural alternatives. 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…”
