About the IDSA

The Skate International Distance and Supercross Association’s (Skate IDSA) mission is to promote skateboard racing & competition in all its forms (LDP/Distance, Garage, and Skateboard Supercross [SBSX]), We will grow participation by providing a consistent governing body and assistance to those with a shared interest in the sport.  It is our aim to grow global awareness of the sport by supporting skateboard racing conducted in a way that is exciting and safe for all participants.  We hope to spread acceptance of the sport throughout communities through assisting in the organization of legal (non-outlaw) sanctioned insured competitions. Skate IDSA showcases skateboarding as part of a healthy and positive lifestyle that is appropriate for all ages and skill levels.  We believe that skateboarding is a lasting form of transportation, fitness and ultimately an inspiring form of competition.
