Mandala Oblongata | A Kaleidoscopic Adventure on the Loaded Boards Tan Tien

Loaded Boards released the details of the new 2017 Tan Tien last week and the media fire is coming with creativity abound. Stoked to see all the new coming from Loaded and their incredible team of talented skaters. Check out the Tan Tien release video by Christian Rosillo, featuring Miquel Moya.

The new Loaded Tan Tien is now available in select shops worldwide!

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.
