The link that ties skating to surfing is absolutely undeniable seeing as the very roots of skateboarding were born from the doldrums between swell pulses hitting SoCal beaches back in the not so distant history. The term “Street Surfing” was not adopted for the use of skateboarders but rather dubbed by surfers who evolved out of their watery habitat into a new one that would ultimately surround them with urban concrete and endless possibilities. The fluid motion of pumping down the line on a wave translates with utter perfection when applied to your local asphalt barrel allowing you to skert through black butter and flirt with the same frictionless sensation. Arbor Collective knows a thing or three about board sports and the connecting forces that bring all of them together which is demonstrated by their latest media production, Towell’s Translation, featuring team rider Tyler Howell in which an amphibious “Towell” is shown putting in work, both in the water and on his local hills. Tyler breaks down any barriers between these showcases of shred by using his sea legs to keep him from ever being a land lover as he charges any and every set wave that comes his way whether it be in the form of a mountain mob or point break perfection.
