Happy Birthday Greyson Fletcher! Greyson has joined the Arbor Skateboards squad and he and Josh Stafford met up at the Venice Skatepark recently to connect a few lines. Greyson will be doing his own artwork for the graphics for his upcoming Arbor pro model, so keep your eyes peeled.
As Arbor described it, “Battling a single trick will always have its place, but linking consecutive tricks into a line has the power to reveal much more about the way great skaters engage with their environments as creativity, consistency and style flow together to compose unique combinations.
Venice Lines follows team riders Greyson Fletcher and Josh Stafford through the legendary Venice Beach skatepark, as they take their own distinct approaches to playing on the park’s steep concrete contours.

In 1995, two friends launched Arbor to make environmental conservation the guiding principle in the production of their snowboard and skateboard products. Arbor would become the first action sports brand founded to focus on sustainability, and formally commit to donating a portion of sales to the conservation of the environment. The story of how Arbor got from this idealistic start to the brand it is today has never been told.
Now, at its 25-year anniversary, the Arbor Collective releases “Crossing the Grain.” The film is a detailed account of how Arbor’s founders, Bob Carlson and Chris Jensen, launched the company into an extremely crowded mid-90’s market, as outsiders with a purpose. It documents the company’s struggles to find acceptance and success, as the industry consolidated in the early 2000s; to building a unique, collective path forward; to eventually earning a place as one of today’s the most innovative and enduring snowboard and skateboard brands.
