Hop on the Bug and shred sustainably.
Hop on the Arbor Bug Longboard for easy maneuverability and quick turning in the city or on campus. Arbor built this responsive cruiser with green materials including recycled plastic risers, recycled glass grip, and sustainably sourced woods. The Bug features a durable seven-ply maple construction, and either a bamboo or koa top sheet for added structure and aesthetics when you’re carving to class. Arbor also uses water-based finishes and sealers to cut down on the use of toxic synthetics. The recycled-crushed glass grip surface replaces processed grip tapes and allows the natural wood grain to remain visible.

This board is great! I just got it and tested it out. It turns easily, which may require a bit more balance, but it's also easy control where you want it to go. The design on the bottom is pretty sweet too. The board is thick, so it's not super flexible. Overall, it's a beauty! Love it.
does this board have a tail or fin?

These have a kick tail.
I got this board and have only longboarded a few times with my friends and rode it right when i got. it is a nice size for riding around town and messing around in the neighborhood. it is really easy to ride and can still hold up for the pros. i really love this board and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a really good deal.
It goes shoop!
This is a sweet little board! I bought it for my girl who has expressed interest in learning to ride. When it arrived, I took it for a spin around the block, and came back with a grin on my face and didn't want to part with it! I normally ride a long, soft cruiser board, so it was really fun to have an agile, responsive, versatile board like this under my feet. It looks like a perfect combo of a skateboard and a longboard, it's very light, and as always with Arbor, looks great. I'm not too stoked on the cheaper bearings (but hey, they'll get replaced eventually anyway), and in my opinion 65mm wheels don't belong on a longboard unless you live in a nicely paved area - I had to be pretty careful on these small wheels with all the cracks and bad pavement in the city, and there was chatter on the more gravely areas. On the plus side, the smaller wheels don't accelerate as much on the downhills, so not every hill has to be bombed at top speed. The trucks are nicely matched - they're fairly narrow and allow the board to be quite turny and agile. It's got a nice nose and kicktail, very responsive, so I can see this being a great all-around board, darting around and hopping curbs. The short shape and snappy response made me want to try a few slides. Unfortunately, the soft wheels will need a lot more breaking in before this board can slide consistently, but I still think it would make for a good slider board. It's not really long or wide enough to do much dancing, at least with my feet. If it comes up for sale again, I might get another one! This was my first impression, and I'll update this review if I have anything to add.
I did a lot of research on longboards. I used to have one, but it was someone else's I had to return, and I really missed having one. I researched online for a while since I knew I'd be spending a decent amount of money. I came across this one and read its review on another site and saw Dog Funk offered it at the lowest amount. I got it and have absolutely zero complaints. I recommend it to anyone.
does this website plan on puttin any more...
does this website plan on puttin any more longboards up
Hopefully, my guess would be yes though, it could be a strong category.
Longboards have definately been coming up on the market. They're definately the hottest thing in Miami since we don't have surf very often and there's no snow.
lovin' me some arbor!
I absolutely love the bamboo topsheet.. it looks amazing.. although it does get dirty easily. I have never longboarded a day in my life, but just 2 days later i was already carving down some hills. This board is really great overall for anyone. The only thing is it's getting a bit squeaky but oh well haha. Get this!
when i got the board the bamboo 1 it was easy enough for a beginner then good enough for a expert.first i rode tight around town and then i loosened it and it was perfect the weight was good and am 180 or 190 and it rode smooth on the street and my roads are pretty gravely it it runs smooth
