Loaded Boards began in 2000 and has always been dedicated to the growth of board sports through performance, community, and creative expression.
Loaded Boards is based out of Culver City, California. Loaded was founded by Don Tashman in 2002 and featured the Vanguard board as its first product.
Tashman has stated that his goal was to create high-performing, environmentally friendly longboards . And wow did they live up to their name! We’ve experienced the soulful beauty of riding and want to pass on the stoke. To that end we are dedicated to putting out the best possible rides we can and we stand behind every board we build.
