Tan Tien (noun): An important concept in eastern meditation and spiritual practices including Chi Gong, Tai Chi and many martial arts. It's the center of energy in the human body and where all of our karmic energy radiates from.
Spanish Ambassador Miquel Moya traveled to the ancient lands of the Canary Islands to finds his center on his Loaded Tan Tien, among the primordial landscapes and volcanic activity. With his keen eye for symmetry, Christian Rosillo captures the action on his home turf.
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.http://loadedboards.com/tan...
