King of the Norf Side

When I conjured up the idea to host an outlaw race league, I was in the pub. I thought that just getting 5 riders in the league would be a rip-roaring success. Ryan Boroughs tells us more…

The British Downhill Skateboarding League

It’s a points-based ranking system for downhill skateboarders who attend BDSL sanctioned events in Britain (see Events Calendar above). The concept of the BDSL is to provide recognition and rewards for riders who perform and/or participate at any downhill skateboarding event held in Britain.

You must simply attend a BDSL affiliated downhill skateboarding event. Points are awarded to everyone who attends, although more points are awarded to those who compete. The idea is to reward and recognise those who make the effort to attend events, as well as those who want to develop their skills in a competitive way. BDSL points can be earned at both regional (open-road) and national (closed-road) events. The format of these events can vary considerably and is totally down to the event organiser’s discretion.

There will be end-of-season awards ceremony for the winners of each discipline; Open, Women, Junior and Luge. Bonus category winners will also be announced based on the outcome of various non-competitive attributes. Winners will be announced online around mid December each year. The prizes are kindly donated by various businesses from within and outside of the longboarding industry. 

The BDSL is not an events organisation team. It is not profit driven and it is not secular.  If you want to be involved or help out in any way, message them through their Facebook page.
