    Question New Board Suggestions

    Hey guys, I was't sure where to post it, so here's the problem:

    I have EWSM and I absolutely love it! I'm using it for DH mainly and some carving/cruising
    anyway, I really want to get a new board for some tricks, like early grabs and so on
    I'm making quite a good progress on my supermodel, but the thing is, it feels too heavy and too stiff

    I'm not a big fan of super costly boards, but I loved some loaded ones, especially Tan Tien (as it has kicktails, is quite flexy and isn't too long)
    and I'm really short of money

    so my question is: Is there any Tan Tien like board I can get for about 100$?

    I mean, EW makes some pretty solid ones (especially the new drifter with it's weird-cosmic-sexy concave) and what would you suggest?


    P.S. such a good feeling to realize no ones gonna suggest any Original boards
    Yeah yeah I know, we beginners are funny, but keep in mind next year I'm gonna kick your asses

    Motion Boardshop is having their Omen Pikes for $50 off. So instead of paying $145, you would only pay $95. Its in your price range, has innovative concave, and has slight DK.
    Also has a drop through or top mount option in case you were wondering.

    BC Moray ($120), BC Eel ($120), Drang Diskette ($90, fully customizable, but be prepared to wait for months.....)
    Thats all I can think of at the moment. There are definitely more, just keep looking.

    First off, hit up the classifieds section here on the fish because there are multiple used tan tiens for sale that are way cheaper than retail price.

    Second, if you're looking for boards similar to the tan tien.
    Jet Doppler
    Maxxspeed appian
    Lifelong rebel
    Madrid koala
    Nelson mongrel
    Honey chameleon

    All of these are great double kicked freestyle boards.

    Madrid Koala seems to be quite good

    but guys, you didn't understand

    I want a FLEXY board, S9 Carbon Decay looked pretty good

    so
    flex first, kicktails second

    Maxxspeed appian--right off their website "A light flex pattern "
    Lifelong rebel--bamboo=flexy
    Madrid koala--again, made of bamboo=flexy

    BC's boards are also flexy.

    Just a heads up, using flexy boards for early grabs will break in the bamboo and make the board very pliant.....this could either be to you liking or it may be too flexy after a while.

    I second the maxxspeed appian under $100 and you could get it custom dropthrough!
    Downhill ftw!
    Wish it was light all the time so that i could longboard more!
