Product description

The Loaded 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.

User Friendly — Drop-through truck mounting positions the deck lower to the ground for easier, more efficient pushing and enhanced stability. Light weight and compact size make the Tan Tien easy to handle for freestyle, freeride, and commuting.

Responsive Ride — Vertically laminated bamboo and fiberglass construction pair with a cambered profile for a lively and engaging ride.

Versatile Variations — 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its a wonderful board w/ quality trucks and wheels
By Alex George on December 3, 2014
I love this board! I was just sliding with it on the wet gravel. It slides beautifully and has less flex than i expected. This is a good thing I love the board and I can't wait to ride it more. In addition to my Sector 9 Sprocket this makes a beautiful addition to my longboard collection. Be sure to note that this board tends to get unstable at high speeds, however what longboards don't... I love my Paris Trucks they are my favorite trucks I've ever had by far until now. Once you get your longboard stance and positioning set and get used to your Tan Tien (or any longboard), it is wonderful for free style riding style, transportation, even downhill if you can slide well. (It's good for everything but I wouldn't suggest this as a primary downhill board)
Note: It's expensive, but it's worth the investment and extremely high quality and durable!
Now for the pros & cons.
Pros:
Well rounded longboard
Light weight
Extremely responsive
Allows sliding with ease (once you learn how)
Has an epic graph design & grip tape design
Idea length for most long boarders

Cons:
Expensive
Extremely responsive and flexy (this can be good and bad depending on the person)

Comes w/ Orange 80a Otang Stimulus :D of course i've heard the 86a (yellow stimulus) wheels are better for sliding (softer wheels) so i would go with those if given another chance. Paris trucks very responsive. (39 inch board)
the board is very nice and has some nice concave.
