Its true Loaded Boards are some of the most expensive longboards on the market (excluding the limited line of diamond encrusted plutonium boards), but you definitely get what you pay for. Their bamboo boards are nearly indestructible, which is important if you skate in a city infested with ignorant taxi cab drivers like New York. A rider can select which level of flex is ideal for their style and weight, and be prepared to dominate whether downhilling, cruising or freestylin. Even the winner of the 2009 Broadway Bomb (the biggest, longest and most dangerous skateboard race in the world) rode a Loaded Dervish.
Their latest board called the Tan Tiem looks slightly smaller than a Dervish but equally vicious. The tan tien is the center from which all martial artists move when they perform, and could also be considered the source of Zen to which all longboarders skate from. The team riders in the video below are absurd, with footwork so fancy my toes began to cry.
