The big smile on your face!

Our vision and inspiration is focused on providing high performance, lightweight and easy to ride longboards that enable riders to enjoy all aspects of snowboarding and embrace the fact that the winner, at the end of any day on the mountain, is the rider with the biggest smile on their face!

Ask yourself!

  • Are you searching for endless powder days?

  • If there is no powder, do you long for the feel of the turn on fresh corduroy groomers?

If your answer is a clear YES, then you understand why we have set our main focus on longboards because against popular belief – size does matter, and this is the source of the soul that drives the Legendary RAD-AIR TANKER line of longboards.

Size matters.

Style is such an individual element and to define it is almost impossible. That difficult description also applies when defining the intended use of our shapes. Individual variables like riders weight, level of riding experience, desired riding terrain, all factor in to what board will suit your riding style. We have seen big aggressive riders having a blast on the 171, the shortest board in the lineup, as well as master class riders below 70 kg ripping soul turns on the 201

Your board choice becomes more a combination of your riding skills and your favorite terrain & snow conditions.

But most importantly – forget the mass market industry approach of choosing your board size by holding it to your nose and thats how long it has to be.

You are a longboarder
Go big or bigger!

From day one, surfing has been a core element of Rad-Air.

And surfing has always shared a close bond with the classic and muscle cars of the 50s, 60s, and 70s. Rad-Air has taken our heritage from both cultures and embraced future technologies, to include a brand new ultralight composite wood core construction that takes the already legendary ride of the Tanker longboards to a new level. This progression has resulted in the entirely new Japan Limited Edition series for 2020-21. The Japanese kanji on the boards says “Kouna Hitsuzen” which translates as “inevitable fate.” This defines our devotion and dedication to the soul lifting rush of powder turns.
Rock on and enjoy the ride!

Our rider driven philosophy continues to be the foundation of Tanker development at Rad-Air.

The new Japan Limited Edition model is a testament to this ethos. The new refinements were tested in the Land of the Rising Sun both in and out of bounds in Minakami, Myoko, and Hakuba. The lasting influence from the incredible crews from Drip-n-Drops Coffee, Lotte Arai, Kodama Lodge, Happo-Kan, and Skunk Works helped shape the board we now offer in limited release.

The epic sessions with the new Japan Limited Edition Tanker were captured by renowned action sports photographer Yoshiro Higai (https://www.instagram.com/yoshirohigai) and we hope that his amazing photos fuel your soul the same way they inspire us.

The new Japan Limited Edition Tankers will be available for shipping from 1 November 2020.

Against popular belief – SIZE MATTERS!
The 201 is the premier RAD AIR flagship. No other longboard is consistantly on the podium of famous longboarding events like the Longboardclassic – the Woodstock of snowboarding. If you crave maximum floatation in combination with rock solid edge hold in a surprisingly quick turning shape, then the new progressive sidecut radius of the 201 makes it the board of choice. The Tanker 201 is a true Big Gun that provides an easy and fluid ride in all conditions!

TANKER 201 TEAM EDITION

While the Tanker 201 is the premier RAD AIR flagship, the Tanker 201 Team Edition is your favorite rock album with the volume cranked to 11! Stiffened with an extra layer of premium materials for maximum response, this is not a board made for the weak of heart. It requires complete commitment from the riders that choose it because it has no equal and will take you to the limits of your abilities. If you are a hard charging freeride fanatic looking for the ultimate ride, the Tanker 201 Team Edition is your weapon of choice for all mountain madness. Rock till you drop and Ride On!
