Arbor Snowboards is proud to welcome Curtis Woodman to their snowboard team. Woodman was born in Sacramento, California and currently resides in Truckee, California. “I’ve been a Curtis Woodman fan since the Neoproto days and I’m fired up to be working with him now,” says Arbor team director, Brad Farmer. “Curtis has a snowboarding ability and style that most can only dream of.
