Getting to know Pumping

Long Distance Pumping or “LDP” is a longboard modality in which the skater can through zigzag movements (better known as pumping) travel long distances without the need to place his feet on the ground frequently. Elite athletes travel hundreds of miles in a single day. Pumping is very associated with surfing movements, and many practitioners enter the sport with the aim of having in this type of skateboard a sensation similar to surfing a wave, but with the ease and practicality of being able to practice the sport on any bike path, street or paved space. Rool founder Artur Maniero made a video a few years ago seeking to publicize the modalide. Watch and tell us what you think!
