Is skateboarding a sport or an art ?
The question arises when one wishes to address the style and philosophy of the discipline. A sport is a discipline with an emphasis on performance, while an art aims to achieve an aesthetic ideal, a technique, a specific style. As art, skateboarding would be close to the dance, in that the search for beauty is through movement.
Evaluation systems of skaters at competitions show the ambivalence of the discipline. Thus, at the end of its run (pass, service), the skateboarder will be judged not only on technique and performance, but also on creativity and style (aesthetics). Limited time, a run can be compared to a figure skating program, but with less strict rules and no dichotomy between free skate program and imposed.
Most fans do not consider skateboarding as a sport discipline in its own right. Two different, yet complementary, therefore, are emerging. While skateboarding is not a sport to become 100% - all aspects of the discipline is not quantifiable in terms of performance - the practice of discipline as an aesthetic object visual (including photographic) spreads.

skateboard is an art, cos theres no form, just free flow free style. is the mind that control movement, not muscle. u need good immagination to create the style, then the technique to do it. so i think is art, but a sweaty art
