You won’t need to present your tree-planting resume to purchase this board, but I wouldn’t be surprised if you did it anyway. The Arbor Veda is a freeride machine that boasts sustainability, and if that’s something at the forefront of your personal ethics, this is a board for you. Designed with climate justice activist Marie-France Roy, the Veda is packed with sustainable features, and rides with the same force that MFR marches to Parliament with.
The Veda is just as well-rounded as MFR’s career, evolving with precision to become an accomplished freeride marvel. As a previous Good Wood award winner, among other accolades, this Platinum Pick was a must for us. Being a product of the Arbor factory holds a lot of virtue in the environmentally conscious department and the graphics alone speak to that. Influenced by
a natural environment, the art on the Veda is backed by paralleling features. The sustainable Powerply Topsheet is supported by a mindfully crafted core, bio-plastic topsheet, recycled steel edges, powder-specific Uprise Fenders in the nose, and a taper through the tail. The Veda was made for the mountains and crafted with the future in mind, so pour yourself a green juice and plan your next adventure with this board in tow. – Ally Watson
“THE VEDA IS THE PERFECT BLEND OF FREERIDE AND FREESTYLE, WITH A PLAYFUL FLEX THAT DOESN’T SACRIFICE STABILITY AT SPEED. THE ADDITION OF UPRISE FENDERS ADDS TO THAT STABILITY, WHILE ALSO INCREASING FLOAT WHEN THE SNOW STACKS UP.” – Tucker Zink, Darkside Snowboards, Killington, Vermont
