Skateboarding transcends sport genres. It rises above categories such as "extreme sports", "action sports", and even other "board sports". I see skateboarding as a true art form comparable to other self expressing arts such as dance do to skateboardings incredible character oriented nature. And by that I mean you can look at someones style and see into their personality by the way they look on a skateboard. It really surpasses being a sport and can easily be defined as self expression through movement. I love skateboarding.
