Boardsport is defined as an extreme sport played using a board as the primary equipment, usually associated with surfing, skim boarding, skate boarding, long boarding, snowboarding, wake boarding, kite boarding, wind surfing, and the like. Long boarding is actually an extended version of a skate board and its specialty is downhill traversing and speed racing. It is now a recognized extreme action international sport performed all over the world.

There will be a free ride registration fee of P200 for all participants, and even non-participants who plan to bring long boards with them. No registration means no free ride. Marshalls will take the boards of free loaders in order to enforce minimal accidents. The organizers are also strict about the no helmet, no race policy, the no skin showing policy (participants must wear pants, rashguards, protective pads, etc., and the no borrowing of gears policy during the race to avoid delays.
