No Newsletter?

I am truly baffled, i look forward to the newsletter very much, and its Wednesday and there's NO newsletter. my week is all off now, completely off. but there's probably a reason why we haven't received one yet, maybe something to do with the holiday season, maybe Adam went back to his home planet for a visit. Hopefully well have one by Monday?

Hello Roseville

Not good enough to pull off the song, but still deserves some sort of honorable mention. Haha, no its pretty good

The heist

another very nice action packed video from a-boys

Saturday, December 27, 2008


Insect has recently released their amazing carbon nanotech firefly to the public, the price for just the deck is a whoping 450 bucks, but if you think about how advanced and hi tech this board is it actually seems quite reasonable. Lets examine it from the inside out, the core is made out of honeycomb making it stable, extremely light and torsionally stiff, this is a concept Loaded was going to use but found it to be much too fragile for a wood board. However insect solved this problem by giving it an exoskeleton made of military grade carbon nanotube strengthened carbon fiber, crazy strong and super light. Last time i heard about carbon nanotubes they were planning on using them to build an elevator to space, i guess they got a little sidetracked. Anyways, for the edging they used a Kevlar epoxy to protect the honeycomb from any impact and exposure to the elements.

The board has a a giant 3/4" deep concave to really lock you into the board, and 1/4" rocker end-to-end, for comfort and also to lock you in. The Lightning Bug, the Mosquito and the Sidewinder series will be available in nanotech soon so keep an eye out.

Bottom line, this boards sick, light as a feather, and i want one!

Orangatang Wheels from Loaded Boards on Vimeo.

Not by any means fresh news, but just in case you didn't know,loaded has a Vimeo account with all the classics up, and hopefully some new ones soon. the videos look a lot cleaner than they do on youtube, and post a lot better up here. everybody should use vimeo, like a little vimeo revolution.
