Featuring this edit from the Streetluge category at this year’s World Skate Games in Barcelona. Especially love seeing Loreline Pastor (Fr) and Elchje Minnie (Bel) commenting on the need for a women’s category, which we understand is well on it’s way to happening – at least with the IDF (International Downhill Federation). We look forward to sharing more from both the women and men who take things lying down 🙂
Another quick pry with young blood grommet Alex Clark.
We are back to our nosy ways and prying into peoples lives. Enter Aaron from Weymouth.

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.
