    Default Tan Tien, Dervish, or Dervish Sama?

    I know there are other threads on this but I couldn't really find an answer for myself.

    I'm new to long boarding but I want a longboard for riding to class (college) and also for downhill riding. I'm looking at the Tan Tien (I think this is supposed to be pretty light as well) and Dervish, and now possible the Dervish Sama as well.

    I am 6'3 with size 13 shoes weigh about 165.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks so much!

    Probably the Dervish Sama. It has more space than the Tan Tien and if you take a Dervish why not one with useable kicks and geip tape.

    But there are a lot of boards, that will make you happy and cost less.
    You will expierience, that most people on the fish do not like Loaded.
    I think the Dervish Sama is a good deck for a beginner, if you are not bothered by the pricetag.
    Only its downhill and sliding capability could be lacking, which might annoy you later, if you want to go really fast or get into sliding.

    Also try one out if you can.

    I am 6ft, I way 143 lbs, and have size 13 feet. The tan tien is the board i started on, I use it for freestyle, I bomb, and freeride. It was built to have limitless options. It is very light for its size, but that does not affect your ride. The wood is very solid, and does not scratch easily. Overall, the tan tien is one of my favourite boards and I definetly suggest it for your needs. Hope this helps

    Get the sama if you're gonna go loaded. Longboard Larry is also coming out with a twin tip Komodo very soon. It's on his FB page. Looks sick.

    Similar question: I'm looking into getting a dervish, and I like the look of the Dervish without the grip tape (and thus giving me room to customize my own), however that is not the most important thing when it comes to a board. So i was wondering if there is a significant difference between the Dervish and the Sama that would justify paying more for the Sama?
