    Go easy on Kottke.

    Some of that first guy’s skating is definitely parkour influenced.

  2. Phil Bost replied:

    I will do no such thing!
    Parkour ≠ free running.

  3. Matt replied:

    Such fine distinctions are for traceurs to work out. If they want to disown freerunning that’s their problem. And if a skateboarder rips off a freerunning move and then I call it parkour, well…

  4. Phil Bost replied:

    This is clearly a polemic, Matt.
    There is no room for gray (or grey) area.

    (I’m just grumpy at Kottke because he doesn’t know I exist and he’s one of my favorites.)
