  • PODCAST: The Loaded Boardcast Celebrating 21 Years of Loaded

    We created four podcasts to celebrate 21 years of Loaded.  We had a blast making these and hope to continue to create unique and interesting interviews for your ears and eyeballs.
  • Celebrating 21 years of Loaded Boards (Barely Legal?)

    It’s been 21 years since the launch of Loaded Boards starting with the launch of the original Vanguard.  There’s a ton to be grateful for, lots to celebrate, so many amazing people to appreciate, bucket loads of good times, some hard times, a lot of mistakes and a whole bunch of significant learnings. Most importantly, we're having more fun than ever and hope to continue this adventure for as long as possible.
  • A conversation on the makings of the Onirique

    The Onirique is live.  Don and Jeff chat about how that came to be.
  • The Past is a Dream. The future is Electric. The Evolve x Loaded Onirique E-Skate

    Finally!  We've been friends with and inspired by the Evolve crew for over a decade.  The elaborating mating ritual was worth the wait.  Introducing the Evolve Onirique:  A brand new high performance e-skate, featuring an exclusive deck that we designed for Evolve around their new (and objectively awesome) longer range e-skate technology. Featuring your choice of Orangatang Caguamas.

    In our biased opinion, it's the finest little e-skate ripper in the world.

  • Introducing Kyoto Skate and Longboard Bags

    We're stoked to now carry the new Kyoto skate and longboard bags on loadedboards.com
  • Shop Spotlight: Venice Skateboarding Stuff

    "Venice is such an open scene, there’s something different going on every day. I love how free people can be and despite it being a little crazy around here, it is home for my family I."
  • The Push, While Seated. Back Home with Rick Stubblefield

    Shred ‘till you’re dead!

    It was pretty incredible on a daily basis. There were plenty of times where things would change dramatically every twenty miles or so.  Going from the most serene (beautiful pavement,  the smell of flowers, gorgeous views) to the most terrifying (no shoulder, trucks barreling by at breakneck speeds and rough pavement) and then back to serenity.  An ever changing rotation of beautiful scenery and scary traffic.

  • Step Aboard the Loaded Fathom

    THE LAST MILE (OR EVERY MILE).

    Introducing the Loaded Fathom, the longboard that blurs the boundaries of what a skateboard can be.

    The Fathom is one of the easiest boards to ride in the world and a ton of fun. Built around the new Loaded Zee Bracket truck mounting system. With large wheels and a low ride height, the Fathom reimagines soulful commuting and urban exploration.

  • Miles Kipper Interview July 1st 2023. From the Road.

    "I was so busy prepping for this trip.  We worked so hard to get to this point.  Preparation, training, and personal work.  But once it’s started you need to slow down and be present.  Here I am, doing something I love all day, everyday.  Sometimes really not loving it, but then turning a corner and the cross wind becomes a tail wind.  You never know what’s around the corner when you’re making the space for it.  It’s life distilled.  Life happens. Sometimes it’s hard, sometimes it sucks. But keep the mental positivity and just push through till you crest the next hill. Sometimes you go from pissed to Nirvana.

    But after this trip I’m gonna hide my skateboard in a closet for a week."

  • Paul Kent Interview from the road June 30th 2023

    Spidey Sense and Military training: My spidey senses are still working from my years of doing this kind of stuff. I can hear the trucks coming from way off.  I feel it more than hear it.  In the army I did reconnaissance and they taught me a trick to increase hearing resolution:  You cup your ears and open your mouth and it increases your perception. First it’s a feeling and then it’s a faint sound.  And I can hone in on it and focus on it as the sound grows.
  • The Push, On the Road: An Interview with Andy "La Maquina" Andras.

    You know what I'm walking away with from the trip?  I'm not flinching anymore when a semi-truck passes within inches of me at 55 miles an hour.  --Andy Andras
  • Shop Spotlight: Burning Spider Stoke Company

    "In many ways longboading saved my life, the absolute least I can do is to work hard for our community so that maybe I can return the favor and introduce someone else to this, so they can be lifted up too."
