'The Dutch Ultra'
'Every year around a hundred skaters from all over the world gather to participate in the Dutch UltraSkate, a grueling 24 hour event where participants have to ride their longboard as far as they can. The track consists of a 3,15 kilometre / 1,96 mile loop, which is ridden in the counterclockwise direction. Every rider is allowed to spend the 24 hours how they like. While some choose to set up their tent, others choose to stay on their board for the full 24 hours.'
