The Loaded Tan Tien. You know it, you love it, and in many ways it has inspired and shaped the way you've been longboarding for years. Do you freeride? Downhill? Freestyle? Well, this board has been paving the way for skaters of all styles and speed. The Loaded Tan Tien is a fully symmetrical freestyle drop through longboard with all of the flash and flare it deserves. Designed to be the little brother to the Loaded Dervish Sama, this board is the perfect gateway for anyone looking to get into the world of freestyle longboarding.

The Tan Tien is fully symmetrical, giving you the freedom to ride it forward, backwards, goofy, regular, and all combinations in-between. The board features a cambered construction that flexes into a rockered platform once you're standing on it. This gives you a lot of energy return for both pumping and carving. This really shines through when paired with the reliable concave for a more secured ride. The Loaded Tan Tien features both 50 grit and 30 grit griptape that's expertly placed, for locking you in when digging hard into your carves, or exploring the world of sliding. But it doesn't stop there. Looking to explore the city? The Loaded Tan Tien features kicktails that help you maneuver anything that might show up in the concrete jungle. To round out the whole package, the Loaded Tan Tien is drop through giving it a lowered ride height and lowered center of gravity for both the confidence of stability, and to ease the strain on your knees. With wheel cutouts, you're able to run larger wheels, or looser trucks, giving you the ability to fully customize your ride.

To give it the Loaded touch, the Tan Tien comes in 3 different flexes. The flex 1 is the stiffest of the 3. This board will take more of a beating for flip tricks while giving you a more stable ride. This is for the rider ranging in the 170-270+ pounds weight range. That makes the flex 3 the flexiest of them all. This is for a very nimble, responsive, and maneuverable ride. This gives you the most bounce per ounce, giving you tons of energy return for pumping, carving, and all around city riding. The suggested weight range for this board is 80-170+ pounds. That leaves the Goldilocks middle ground, flex 2. Not too stiff, not too flexy. It is juuuuust right. This flex is the most popular out of all of the Loaded Tan Tien flexes. The suggested weight range for this board is 130-210+ pounds. Keep in mind, these are only suggested weight ranges. So have fun, give it a ride, and you’ll find you may love a lot of extra flex, or a much stiffer ride. No matter what you choose, the Loaded Tan Tien is a package of explosive fun, which any one is sure to love.

Right on
This board is pretty sweet. I can kick it out on standies and its got a mild concave that is solid enough to lock your feet in. It's great for carving and freestyle and all around cruising. I have hit some hills with it and it gets some wobbles after getting to higher speeds but it is solid at sliding in the corners. I highly recommend this board to anyone looking for a solid and fun ride.
As my first board I was like any 17 year old looking for something other than socks under the Christmas tree this year... needless to say I was ECSTATIC when I saw a loaded under the tree. This board has been a great board for switching to longboarding from Just plain street skating because of its ability to carve. Definitely not for downhill, but really easy to kick out standup slides, and really any Slide you can think of. As a 6 foot 175lb dude the Flex 3 board i hot has held up really well, and done everything i have needed. All around great first board, and if it were only a little bigger it would be perfect!!! Really great for anyone, it’s just some big riders might find it hard to adjust.
Most veRsatile and fun board around
I used tO think loaded Boards were over prOced and over rated until i leaRned fIrsthand what i could do on a tan tien. I used to ride sector 9 but my rIding exploded when i got my fIrst tan tien. I'm about to order my 6th tan tien. They Can take a good beating But i like to ride It so much that i break mine in about 6 months from new. Big ollies, Old sChool varial kickFlips, manuals, and tiger Claw variations are enabled by its excellent precision. I recommeNd this board abOve all others if yOu want the best mix of snappy smooth freestyle flatgrOund, light downhill tricks, and wicked smooth slides. Use paris v2 or sImilar 180mm, otang stims 86a or fat free 86a, flex 1 deck for better response and durability (i am 6' and 170lbs). I dont Think i will ever ride a different board as loNg as my energy can sustain my riding style. This board is too fun.
It's a great board to learn how to dance and do some mild freestyle but if you want to do some serious longboarding I wouldn't recommend this.

This month, all orders over $19.95 get the newest sticker of the month. When robots take over the world, it will surely be more or less like when humans did: Some will be jerks, some will gather all the power, and some will just want to shred. Ted Cocuzza envisions a world where robots still have the freedom to throw a steezy layback grind on a DIY spot when they feel the need.

As always, every order will come with two free classic Daddies stickers at no cost. We know... we're sweet.
