World Downhill Skateboarding Championship

The WDSC is the world-leading international series for the spectacular sporting disciplines of Downhill Skateboarding and Street Luge in their purest forms.

The world championship was established in 2013 by the International Downhill Federation (IDF) holding events across four continents.  In 2021, in collaboration with the UK-based company Race Marketing & Management, it will launch its ninth season as the World Downhill Skateboarding Championship (WDSC).

The multiple event series which determines the respective world champions from points amassed at each event in each category attracts the world’s top international competitors in Men’s and Women’s Downhill and Street Luge.

Downhill is the most demanding and breath-taking discipline in the sport and is governed by a strict set of rules laid out by the IDF, with safety and sporting integrity the cornerstones to ensuring an outstanding experience for all competitors, spectators, media and stakeholders.

Downhill is widely regarded as the ‘ultimate’ challenge with highly talented fearless competitors taking on and hurtling down unforgiving steep challenging twisting circuits at breakneck speeds on the latest state-of-the-art, highly technical skateboards.

The spectacular event weekends are run over two or three days with technical inspection, a minimum of two practice sessions, official qualifying, round robin knockout races and finals.
