Tan Tien Update—December 7th, 2016: The latest iteration of the Tan Tien features a new engineered wood bottom veneer and a new grip design.
The Tan Tien blends carve-oriented longboarding with advanced trick riding. A flexible deck, drop-through truck mounts and usable kicks allows 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 (Dec. 2016) reference the history of the Tan Tien and its conceptual underpinnings. It’ll also make your home smell of many leather bound books.
