USADSA Kicks Off 2012

2011 was a great year for the Longboard Industry, push racing set the stage and surprised the industry with a large marathon racing series, the formation and legitimization of the sport's first governing body: The International Distance Skateboard Association. In its first year of existence, it provided insurance as well as the rules and regulations that Adrenalina followed in it acclaimed Marathon Racing series that visited South Florida, New York City, Plano, and San Juan.

The USA Distance Skateboard Association formed as the National Governing Body of the sport and continues to work hard to continue to provide Skateboard Insurance to its members, education to non skaters in order to convert them, and partner with race organizers to continue to host both community and national races.
