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.

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.
