LDP – which stands for Long Distance Push – is a type of skating that involves riders pushing their bodies to the limits in order to push a certain distance for time. Similiar to running marathons, skaters who participate in LDP strive for the best endurance and fitness. Also, many LDP athletes like to learn to push with both legs! This is of course, an easy way to limit fatigue, but it is also a great way to stay in shape and to train your body and your brain to do something different by learning how to push switch. LDP skating is great for those people looking to skate for fitness, those looking to compete for time, and anyone who is looking to use skateboarding as a way to achieve some sort of exercise. Skating is fun and should always stay that way, even when pushing your body to the limit!
