ETHOS We love skateboarding, snowboarding and surfing and we want to see them all expand and be successful. This mission is at the core of all our business strategies. Our current priority is to grow the longboard industry and community. Our belief is that the rising tide raises all ships, and that if longboarding grows we will grow. We don’t prioritize our brand to do that. We view all other longboard companies as friends and partners who are collectively growing skateboarding. We don’t have any intention of “fighting over market share,” but rather are looking to innovate and inspire in order to grow longboarding for the good of all. We’ve studied the successes and missteps of the Surf, Snow and Skate industries and have determined what we believe are best practices: The specialty skate/surf/snow shops and distributors are the heart and soul of the culture of board riding. To that end we work with the best partners worldwide and are committed to supporting these shops and distributors in order to ensure their long-term success.

This support occurs in numerous fashions, with one key method being that everyone in the supply chain makes a fair and sustainable margin. This seems obvious but unfortunately hasn’t been standard practice in our industry, and the specialty shops have been the first to suffer. By giving the retailers healthy margins we’ve become known/criticized for our high pricing/prices. So it goes. We’ve also helped many survive the Great Recession. We feel that we provide the best product we can at a fair price while compensating all those that contribute to the process in an equitable manner. If you don’t like it—you don’t need to buy our shit. But if you choose to get a Loaded, be proud that your hard earned money is supporting a creative and cultural process, and is helping this community to thrive. We enjoy what we do and we love to challenge each other and to challenge you. We expect you to challenge us back and we feel that this is the key to personal and communal growth.

OVERLAND Spanning the size gap between the Kanthaka and Tesseract, the Overland is designed for the all-around rider seeking a happy medium between a shorter technical double kick and a downhill freeriding machine. Mild radial concave and subtle wheel well flares ensure a comfortable stance, while a beefy kicktail and steeper nose provide crisp pop and ample leverage for ollies, slides, manuals and shuvits. The directional shape with tapered waist facilitates quick back-foot transitions from rail to rail and accentuates the rear wheel well flares, while a moderately stiff flex allows for responsive turning. Textured urethane on the bottom provides vibration damping, durable protection, and ultra-smooth rail slides. Two wheelbase options accommodate reverse-kingpin and standard trucks.

Upturned nose and tail kicks, purposeful griptape patterns, rocker, mellow concave and damp flex (created in part by the use of epoxy bio-resin & cork) result in comfortable and functional ergonomics that inspire confidence on both the dance floor and the hills.

DERVISH SAMA With a slightly wider platform than its predecessor, the Dervish Sama balances comfort, edge control, and responsiveness. Combined with more pronounced concave, the extra width enhances turn initiation and slide control. We added subtle nose and tail kicks to increase pop and lock your feet in for freestyle tricks. The neck and drop-through cutout were also updated for increased durability under hard riding conditions. A sixpiece griptape pattern provides enhanced control at the kicks and facilitates comfortable footwork maneuvers on the standing platform without interfering with the board’s flex pattern.

VANGUARD The one that started it all. Symmetrical shape and stance encourage a balanced center of gravity and increase the ability to weight the deck through turns for better control and energy generation. The sidecuts allow for decreased torsional stiffness between the feet to allow for greater nuances in the turning radius.

FATTAIL The Fattail was designed for pumping, carving, pedestrian slalom, freestyle and any situation where lively, energetic lines are on the menu. Subtle concave locks your feet in against g-forces, while the topmounted and cambered platform provides energetic performance in and out of each carve. The deck’s shape offers ample leverage under both feet for aggressive maneuvering while maintaining a subtle taper near the trucks to provide awareness of foot position while powering through turns. It features a hefty kicktail for functionality in both freestyle tricks and surf-style shredding. The Fattail is also equipped with a slight nose kick for manuals and shuvits.
