Arbor Snowboards

If your dad is like mine, a new snowboard would blow him away. (He's nearing 60 and has been riding for nearly 20 years). If you have a little extra money stashed away and want to create one of the most epic Father's Day memories, consider going with an Arbor snowboard. Arbor strives to create beautiful snowboards that ride hard and leave a lighter environmental footprint. The company never compromises on quality and utilizes a lot of bamboo and other natural materials in the boards. On the surface, this may seem like an odd time to buy a snowboard, but if you plan it right, you can find an end-of-season deal and save yourself some cash.
