If it only matters to us the type of riding we do, it's skiboarding and the style we ride. So, this discussion is more about genres than it is about the sport itself.
        You have a great point. I do however feel that a sense of what one does and is helps in many aspects, and that genres might not be the best term for what it is that we are looking for in this thread- but it's the best word so far.

        I can think of runners as runners. Track atheletes that run all day- training. But Sprinters are sprinters and are very diifferent in their training and mentality than say- a long distance runner- but both train to run- and are both runners- but are so different that it's impossible to call a sprinter the same as a distance runner- they will even look different biologically.

        I think it's okay to think of what we do as different- otherwise people wouldn't stare- point- and ask questions.

          The definition is in the name. Once again, same genus, different species.
          I do it because I can.
          I can because I want to.
          I want to because you said I couldn't.
