The Arbor Wasteland is a exceptional twin-tip board with the classic Arbor wood look and cool tip/tail shape. It's rocker'd base profile makes it fun, easily maneuverable, and floaty in powder. Because of the medium flex and the fact that it's not cambered, the pop suffers a little, and the rocker also makes it a little less stable than most in the fleet. Its overall shape is very similar to the Jones Explorer, Capita Defenders of Awesome, and the Never Summer Proto Type Two we tested, which are cool looking shapes. It is priced a little heavy though, at $600, and while it's a great board, it does not ride well enough to warrant the price tag.
For the 2017/18 season Arbor Collective has updated the look of the Wasteland (pictured above) with a simpler, cleaner design.
If you prefer last year's topsheet, it's currently still available as a limited edition model.
