The acronym LDP stands for longdistance pushing but also for longdistance pumping. Longdistance pushing: These decks are ideal for long distances (50km +) or relaxed cruising. Due to the special design these boards have a very low center of gravity. This results in two main advantages: Smoothness / stability and a significant relief during pushing since the knee is not constantly flexed during pushing. These properties are particularly useful on long treks. Large cutouts allow easy assembly of wheels with diameters beyond 75mm.

Longdistance Pumping: "Pumping" means the acceleration of a longboard without putting a foot from the board. This is done by rapid changes of direction which are generated by rhythmic pumping body movements that will accelerate your board. To achieve such a handling with your longboard it has to meet a few requirements: Standing near the front truck, very agile and soft front truck and a very stable rear truck. Due to these special requirements we do not have any pumper completes in the offer and therefore we recommend to make your own custom complete board according to your wishes. If you have any problems assembling your pump setup, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone or e-mail.
