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.
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 Loaded has built to date and they hope you will appreciate the subtle beauty of the form.
The boards come pre-gripped with an aggressive black griptape designed to provide maximum coverage while allowing the board to flex naturally.
This is Loaded’s first foray in years into traditional grip tape (albeit grippier to match the needs of this board) and we went with this because it provides enhanced traction and control for sliding and pumping, as well as creating a serious “lock-in” on the nose and tail.
