The Loaded Tan Tien has a fresh face for 2017!

The Tan Tien is a longboard skateboard for the intermediate to advanced rider, but this doesn't mean it's "bad" for a beginner... Just be aware, it may eat you alive!

From experience with the board we can say that it's a lively one, not to be underestimated because of its "smaller" 27" wheelbase. This longboard deck comes in three flex numbers and will most certainly give you the option to get loose and wild, more stable if you're a powerhouse, or right in the center so you can get crazy in both directions!

We're very stoked for this board and you should be, too! Besides, you KNOW we've already ordered ours.

Set it up!
If you're looking to get your slide and slash on, grab a set of the 70mm Orangatang Stimulus longboard skateboard wheels in Purple (83a) or Yellow (86a) depending on your weight. If you're not so keen on the sliding thing, try a set of 70mm Orangatang 4President Longboard Wheels in Orange (80a) or Purple (83a). Either way, you'll be enjoying this board like no other! Also find yourself some reverse kingpin longboard trucks like the 180mm Paris Longboard Trucks and you'll be on your way to making those power moves in no time!

Note from Scott:
Purchase an extra pack of 1" Panhead hardware for the Loaded Tan Tien. The Loaded Tan Tien will break hardware due to Torsional Flex (twisting of the bamboo) along with the movement of the baseplate between the Drop-Through. We suggest that you order .13 Drop-Through risers when building your complete and add a Skate Tool so that you can make sure your hardware is snug at all times.

Loaded's Description

The Tan Tien 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.

Lines are fluid. Directions are malleable.

The updated grip design and bottom veneer reference the history of the Tan Tien and its conceptual underpinnings. It’ll also make your home smell of many leather-bound books.

Length: 39” (99 cm)
Width: 8.75” (22.25 cm)
Wheelbase: 27” (68.5 cm)

This is my first long board deck, but I have a decent background in snowboarding and skating. This thing is a blast to ride, I got flex option 3 (~130 lbs), and there is a noticeable, but very pleasant flex to the board while pushing and carving. I love the camber profile, and combined with the flex it makes for a really energetic feeling board. Looking forward to riding it for a long time :)

The Best Service Ever
on 2019-06-30 Verified Purchase
I've been shopping here for all my longboard need since I was 12 and it has always been the best experience. I originally ordered the Tan Tien but then changed my mind to the Icarus. Scott was perfectly able to help me with the change and cost! The icarus is one of the coolest carving boards ive ever ridden I barely have to push as i pump on my way to work and the park. Definitely recommended if you live in Florida. I am currently running Randall R2s and 3dm 74 mm Avila wheels with bones swiss bearings.
