Pat Moore has been pushing what snowboarding is and what it can be from the beginning. He strongly believes the old guard should support and build up the new guard, that the past is our foundation that the future is built on. It might sound strange, but that is exactly what this board represents. Arbor is know for specific designs that are consistent across all models like parabolic shaping and Grip Tech. But Arbor sees the future as Pat does and they know that they must evolve to build the future of snowboarding. That is why they brought Pat on board, to design and build the future with Arbor as the foundation. This is the first board in the Pat’s new line with Arbor called Candle. A directional twin with a setback and mild taper, everything you need no matter what the conditions.
“I had the chance to ride this board last spring and I couldn’t be happier with the direction Pat and Arbor are going. It was fun and lively and very stable at speed and as far as I am concerned full camber doesn’t need edge-tech. Grip Tech has its place, but I loved the non-grabby edge-hold and smooth edge to edge transfer.” -Clifford, Berg’s Snowboard Manager
"Arbor Snowboards welcomes Pat Moore to the team in 2023/24 as an athlete, expert, collaborator, and confidant as we embark on a new chapter of being a part of snowboarding forever. Experimenting within the guiding principles of quality, craftsmanship, and sustainability, collectively we explore new growth."-Arbor Snowboards
“I couldn’t be happier to join the Arbor team and embark on a long journey with so much opportunity for growth... a big thing for me moving forward is I want to be that person to help the next generation take that step into snowboarding.”
-Pat Moore, Arbor Pro Snowboard Team

Directional Twin w/ Mild Taper
Directional twins offer the best of both worlds allowing for the most versatility, a directional shape and setback with a twin flex so you can still ride switch easily in any situation. Tail width is slightly tapered (3 mm) narrower than the nose width. This loosens up turning initiation on the groomers for a smoother and easier ride without sacrificing edge hold on hardpack. This also improves floatation in deeper snow by reducing the surface area in the tail, allowing the tail to sink lower so the nose can rise above the pow for a surfier ride. This also helps to reduce back leg fatigue, so you can stay out longer on those perfect days.
Full camber profiles are ideal for powerful turns and poppy precision. They offer a snappy suspension with weight distributed evenly across the entire board for smooth, continuous edge control from tip to tail. The support and snap you get from a cambered board is unrivaled by any other camber design.
Hand Dyed Ash Underlay
The wood Powerply is a natural topsheet and is what makes an Arbor snowboard ride like an Arbor snowboard. Bringing the board to life with the natural spring and liveliness of the specific woods used. For the first time the Powerply is not on top, but underneath instead, combining the benefits of the wood layer and traditional topsheet.
A combination of a triax weave and a biax weave lay–up, providing flex where you want it with snap and stability where you need it.
AWD Carbon Uprights
Two carbon fiber uprights running from the tip and tail to just past the inserts. A setup that provides added landing durability and pop for bigger park and backcountry performance.
360° Fully Wrapped Sidewalls
Fully wrapped sidewall that eliminates the need for tip fill, while effectively tying the whole snowboard together. A technology that delivers incredibly tight tolerances for improved board life and durability.
