Loaded Tan Tien Longboard Skateboard Deck



Quick Overview

The Tan Tien is a great board for sliding, freeriding, and freestyle type tricks!
Deck Flex
Flex 1 (Up to 270 lbs)
Flex 2 (130-210+ lbs)
Flex 3 (80-170+ lbs)
Drop Thru shock pads, while not required to enjoy your ride, are a great way to remove unwanted vibrations from the road.
Used to keep the bolts on your board nice and tight and/or to assemble the board.
Lubricant and cleaning kits are used to keep the bearings in the wheels turning quickly and smoothly; if this is your first board, these upgrades are not necessary. Make sure you love to ride first!
The Loaded Tan Tien is the answer to all your problems! Smaller and more maneuverable with a functional tip and tail like the Ceviche, this board will be the high performance little brother to the Dervish. The Tan Tien manifests the desire to develop new tricks and engage new riding styles. Foot-locking concave will ensure your style doesn't slip. Drop-thru is designed to work with most reverse kingpin geometry trucks (Randal R-II, Paris, Holey, Bear, Gullwing Charger and Tracker Fastrack) and 70mm+ wheels.


Recommended Components:

  • Randal R-II 180mm Trucks (Don't go smaller than 180mm or you might get wheel bite)
  • Orangatang Stimulus Freeride YELLOW Wheels 70mm 86a (same for the wheels, wheel bite can occur over 70-72mm)
  • IDS OUST ABEC 7 (Add Spacers!)
  • DBS Dank Bolts 1"

Customer Reviews

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.
Got this today !
Perfect for slides!
Perfect for cruising!
Great For tricks !

I'm not a pro, so I know that's why I like this board so much..
But being an average longboarder that does a bit of everything, this board is GREAT !
I have ridden a few longboards and nothing compares to this one. Its good for everything but I will only recommend it for cruisin and light downhills since it's so pretty to look at and got a lot of flex if you go flex 3 or 2. Its certainly not a deck you would want to see destroyed. You can push and carve on this one so easy its unbelievable. The flex helps a lot!

It got almost no concave so that makes it a lot more comfortable when you cruise around with it. You will still have great gripe with the help of the grip tape and the fact that this deck can turn so much.

It's also very light weight, which means you can carry around with it with no problem. Bamboo and fiberglass makes this deck extremely strong and lasting!

My setup: Paris V2 180mm, Orangatang 4 president 70mm 83a(super fast and fun to cruise with)
Amazing board
I bought this board back in 2012 and i love it. i ride it every single day. i have the flex 2 and i weigh 145 lbs and its amazing. the flex is great, its light, its beutiful and eligent.
all around just an amazing board.
Great board, works for everything and long lasting.
Brought this board at about 2.5 years into my longboarding experience. Favorite thing about the board; its light. I haven't purchased another board yet and i'm 6 years into riding. This board can withstand downhill speeds, corners, free riding and its great for sliding. Its a fast, small, light board.
I originally purchased it with randal's used them for about 6 months before switching to paris coltons which are the best! the best! trucks to have on this board and possibly the best way to get use out of it.

Bad Ass Freestyle Board!
Got this board about 5 months ago. If you are into the freestyle scene this is a bad ass mama jama! It's kicks will produce effortless shuv-it's and the flex allows for sky high hippie-jumps and board flips. It is a little tough for sliding because there is virtually no concave, but it just takes some getting used to. It does not perform well for downhill. at around 35 I start to get some wobble action. Great freeride/freestyle board though! The only reason it gets 4 stars is because it chips easily. Make sure you get light trucks because heavy trucks make it harder to pop the tails, which does the board complete injustice! I'm 220 pounds and I ride a flex 1. My set up consists of caliber 50's for the trucks, orangatang moronga 86a wheel's, and bones super swiss 6 ball bearings. The things a rocket and very lightweight. But don't take it over 30, your skin will thank you!
i bought it used complete for 100$ and its perfect great for cruising, but not sure i would buy it for full price just for cruising. the kicks are good for freestyle even though i suck at it. i way 110 and have flex 3. sliding is great, but the camber, mellow concave is frustrating for long standups. do not get flex 1 because u want to slide. making the deck stiff doesnt make it good for freeride. if u want to get a deck that can freestyle and freeride i recomend the landyachtz drop carve, or rayne rival. the drop carve has good but not painful concave and huge kicks. landdyachtz advertise it has flexy but it is stiffer then a flex 1 tan tien. the rayne rival packs tons of features that are amazing. a good loaded deck for freeride would be the bhangra. people say its huge but it has a shorter foot platform than the rayne demonseed. i have it and its awesome. its also just as heavy as a landyachtz switchblade. if u think abot it the bhangra is a shorter chubby unicorn. if u get a loaded deck get with cult classics or abec 11 freerides. otangs are chattery, icy and wear faster than butterballs. i wwouldnt reccomend it for freeride,or cruising. unless u get it for dirt cheap like me

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.
