LDP
LDP stands for Long Distance (Skateboard) Pumping, also known as "Skumping." Longboard-skateboard technology has rapidly advanced since the 1970's, and along with those changes is a new breed of distance-pumping skateboarder.

LDP sessions can be casual 5- to 10- mile pump cruises on flat bike / rollerblading trails, or a 26-mile all-out marathon, where a gyrating, pumping motion is the primary means for moving the skateboard forward!

The act of skateboarding long distances over flats and inclines without touching foot to ground, using perpetual surf-like pumping motions, sometimes switching between "goofy" and "standard" pump stances. Longboards for Skumping are generally in the 36" - 43" length range with 25"+ wheelbases, longer than skateboards used in Giant Slalom racing.
