The Tan Tien longboard blends carve-oriented longboarding with advanced trick riding. A flexible deck, drop-through truck mounts, and usable kicks allow the Tan Tien to pack a lot into a relatively small package. The complex contours create a super responsive board that allows for increased confidence when leaning into turns, popping tricks, and powering through slides.
TRICK-FRIENDLY CARVING MACHINE – The Loaded Tan Tien is a performance longboard created for carving, pumping, freestyle, freeride, and urban commuting / alternative transportation.
FUNCTIONAL DESIGN – Drop-through truck mounting for stability and easier pushing. Large cutouts maximize wheel clearance for deep carves and tight turns. Nose and tail kicks open the door for advanced freestyle trickery and help navigate city streets. Cambered profile and mild concave create a responsive yet comfortable platform for carve-oriented longboarding.
STRONG & LIGHT – Snowboard-inspired composite construction combines vertically laminated bamboo and fiberglass for a durable, lightweight, and lively ride.
HIGH-PERFORMANCE FLEX – Bamboo and fiberglass provide lively and energetic flex perfect for hard carving and pumping. Available in three flex ratings to tailor the ride to your weight and style. Lower flex is ideal for heavier riders or aggressive tricksters; higher flex is recommended for lighter riders or those looking for a more responsive board.
Flex 1: 170-270+ lbs
Flex 2: 130-210+ lbs
Flex 3: 80-170+ lbs
As always, these are recommendations only. Experiment!

Dedicated to the growth of board sports through performance, community, and creative expression.
Exploring ways of emulating snowboarding and surfing on land, Loaded began as a passion (obsession?) in the mid 90s. We scavenged Krypto Classics, Krypto 85s, Bones Hardcore wheels, every new-fangled truck we could find, and retrofitted every piece of wood or old snowboard we came across with trucks and wheels. The decision to start a company occurred in September of 2000 following a series of serendipitous events. After much trial and error with all kinds of materials and production methods, we launched our first board, The Vanguard, in June 2002.
We build what we want to ride.
We are passionate about materials, are committed to environmentally conscious design and production, appreciate the subtleties of process (the devil’s in the details) and are devotees of functionally driven design.
The ideation and design of all of our products are spearheaded by a small, project specific, in-house team followed by input from the entire in-house crew and select ambassadors. The strength of each project team is built on a foundation of trust, maximizing individual strengths/perspectives, accountability, intellectual rigor and constructive criticism. Egos and biased assumptions are challenged and the expectation is that each player brings a healthy dose of positivity and passion to the table. The upshot is both refined product and poignant personal growth.
As with everything, it all comes down to people. We’ve worked hard to build a tight knit crew of diverse and unique individuals who share a common passion for getting weird and who have collective synergies. This approach extends beyond our in-house crew and includes our vendors who are like-minded and whom we believe to be the best in the world at what they do.
We try and put out a coherent ideology and we find that those that get it are drawn to it and become part of the dialogue. This is especially true for our shops and distributors worldwide who are our partners in irreverence and promoting the gospel of stoke.
