Back when SNOWBOARD Mag began in the early 2000s, Jeff Baker and Aaron Draplin spent long hours putting the pages of each magazine together. Their friendship has spanned shake-ups in media, trends in board shapes, and the various ebbs and flows of the current in snowboarding. Today, Baker has returned to the helm of SNOWBOARD as the general manager and Draplin’s name is synonymous with impeccably created designs. For the 2022 season, Draplin and his Draplin Design Company (DDC, for short) created the graphics for the Arbor Shiloh.

In the above conversation, Jeff Baker speaks with the bearded man behind Draplin Design Company to hear the story of the Arbor Shiloh art.
