Loaded Tan Tien Longboard Product Description:
Driven by progressive longboarding as explored by Loaded’s riders, the Tan Tien manifests the desire to develop new tricks and engage new riding styles. From its foot-locking concave, drop-thru truck mounting and pumpable camber, to its responsive nose and tail kicks, the Tan Tien blends carve oriented longboarding with advanced trick riding. The complex contours create a super responsive board that allows for increased confidence when leaning into turns, popping tricks, and powering through slides. With the woven bamboo bottom and the funky grip design the Tan Tien is easy on the eyes. But you’ll need to ride this board to truly fathom its potential.

Epoxy and Tri-axle fiberglass sandwich a vert-lam Bamboo core, pressed into concave and convex cambers as well as nose and tail kicks. The nose and tails are reinforced with an extra layer of fiberglass for added stiffness and strength without compromising the responsiveness and energy of the central camber. DropThru cutouts are CNC milled for precision. This is the most complex board we’ve built to date and we hope you will appreciate the subtle beauty of the form.
Flex 1: Up to 270 lbs
Flex 2: 130-210+ lbs
Flex 3: 80-170+ lbs
Keep in mind that a softer flex pattern will give you more control and tighter turns at slower speeds and make it easier to slide, but tends to lose stability slightly at higher speeds. Stiffer flex means more energy potential, more stability at higher speeds, and better longevity through abusive tricks and aerial landings, but will not be as forgiving and lively when cruising. The Flex 1 is considerably stiffer so as to be appropriate for heavier riders and hardpounding thrashers alike.
Set up: We’ve designed the drop-thru to accommodate the Randal R-II, Paris, Bear, Gullwing Charger and Tracker Fastrack Longboard Trucks. All reverse-kingpin trucks work well on this board, but we recommend using at least a 180mm wide truck.
