Why skateboarding in the Olympics is not skateboarding

Skateboarding has its funamental guiding principle: there are no rules in skateboarding. If this is true, then anything with rules means it is not skateboarding.

Getting Back to the Roots

Roots as the values, principles and core spirituality that make me who I am

relative worth, merit, or importance:the value of a college education; the value of a queen in chess.
monetary or material worth, as in commerce or trade:This piece of land has greatly increased in value.
the worth of something in terms of the amount of other things for which it can be exchanged or in termsof some medium of exchange.

Value of Skateboarding, an outlet of creation through physical expression incorporating the entire body and mind. The risk oriented approach to skateboarding helps people grow strong, and keeps those who are grown, humble. Exercising the mind to find new value in existence is the primary importance of skateboarding.

an accepted or professed rule of action or conduct:a person of good moral principles.
a fundamental, primary, or general law or truth from which others are derived:the principles of modern physics.
a fundamental doctrine or tenet; a distinctive ruling opinion:the principles of the Stoics.

Principles of Skateboarding, there are no rules. This is demonstrated with carnally defying the laws of physics. Creation in the mind of an individual is met with opposition in laws and rules, the mind rejects these laws and puts into existence something that individual's world has never seen (through the expression of a trick).

Core Spirituality
of, relating to, or consisting of spirit; incorporeal.
of or relating to the spirit or soul, as distinguished from the physical nature:a spiritual approach to life.
closely akin in interests, attitude, outlook, etc.:the professor's spiritual heir in linguistics.

The soul of skateboarding is exploration of ones inner self, and his/her surroundings. Testing the limits of oneself allows one to grow past these limits. In the act of growing, one will discover the unique talents and abilities that are God-given that differentiate oneself as a human being, and as a powerful being, separate from that of an animal or any other innate object. In the same way one can explore their surroundings in an effort to understand what it is that surrounds them and is their habitat. In knowing the limits of the habitat, one can learn to grow the habitat and differentiate it from a dead object.
