“陆” is short for “陆地” (lùdì, meaning “land”), and “冲” is short for “冲浪” (chōnglàng, meaning “surfing”). This term, coined by Chinese netizens, refers to surfskating, a type of skating done on a board called a surfskate, which is a skateboard with a special surfboard-esque shape and unique features that essentially allow you to surf on the street. The sport was invented by Californian surfers who looked for ways to practice their moves on hard surfaces during flat sea days.
