The following is a quick overview of the 2024 Arbor snowboards lineup.
First I will take a look at any new boards for the 2023-24 season, and any 2022-23 boards that aren't returning with a 2024 model.
Then I'll place each board into the categories where I see them fitting best and finally take a look at any changes for returning boards.
New 2024 Arbor Snowboards
The new boards for 2023-24 are:
+ Mantra Rocker/Camber - Appear to be identical to the outgoing Poparazzi Rocker/Camber, so in this case just a name change.
+ Terra Twin Camber - New mid-flexing board with 3D shaping in the nose and tail. Called a powder/freestyle by Arbor. Short wide-ish, designed to be sized down 3-5cm from your normal size. Whilst there is twin in the name, it's not quite twin. The nose and tail lengths are the same, but there is some subtle taper (slightly wider nose than tail).
+ Terra Pin Rocker - The Terra Pin Rocker uses Arbor's new 3D shaping but this time in a tapered directional, more traditionally freeride shape. Still mid-flex, and this time they've used they're rocker profile, as opposed to camber on the Twin, so looks really setup for powder and likely quite surfy feeling.
+ Carter Camber - Replaces the outgoing Clovis. A lot of similarities with the Clovis, but some obvious shape and dimension tweaks.
+ Carter Splitboard Camber - Split version of the new Carter Camber (naturally!).
+ Candle Rain Camber - New pro model from Pat Moore, who got on board with Arbor recently. Mid-flexing board that Arbor calls Directional Twin, but does have some sutble taper (3mm). This was almost a secret board snuck in right at the back of Arbor's catalog and not showing in their board summaries or specs sheet. I would say all-mountain, bordering on Freeride, because of that taper but it's pretty subtle taper.
Exiting 2023 Arbor Snowboards
The 2023 boards that aren't returning with a 2024 model:
- Poparazzi Rocker/Camber - but not really exiting, just being called the Mantra now.
- Cosa Nostra - but not really exiting, just being called the Mantra now.
- Clovis - replaced by the new Carter Camber.
All 2024 Arbor Snowboards by Category
Below, I have categorized Arbor's 2023-24 lineup. This is according to the categories here at SnowboardingProfiles.com and not necessarily the same as how Arbor might label them.
Of course these are only broad categories as every board is different, but this is a rough guide.

So there you have the 2024 Arbor snowboards.
Out with the Old and In with the New
The Poparazzi Rocker and Camber are both out, by only in name - as they are directly replaced with the identical Mantra Rocker and Mantra Camber.
The Cheater Camber is also a replacement (for the Clovis), but it's more than just a name change. Similar to the outgoing Clovis but with enough differences to be more than a name change. The Cheater Camber also gets a split version.
The Cosa Nostra exits, with no obvious replacement.
And finally the new 3D shaped Terra Pin Rocker and Terra Twin Camber. The former being a very powder focused ride and the later touted as a powder/freestyle board.
Changes to Existing Models
Wasterland Rocker/Camber: '24 model gets "Eucalyptus Burl. Palisander. Black Dyed Ash Powerply" in place of the "Ash, Red Elm and Pallisander Powerply" that was on the '23 model. Otherwise appears to be the same.
Swoon Rocker/Camber: Gets the "Double Barrel II" core in place of the '23 model's "Highland II" core.
Bryan Iguchi Camber: GAINS size 158W.
Veda Camber: GAINS sizes 157, 159, 162W. Get's "Cabonized Bamboo Powerply" for '24 model in place of the "Hand Dyed Ash Powerply" from the '23 model.
Graphics have been updated on most models, with the exception of the A-Frame, Crosscut Camber/Rocker and the Satori Camber, which all carry over their '23 graphics.
