Because flatland exists(to them) at the contests/jams/sponsorships rather than in the heart.  They go by who they see on the internet...which is telling only a fraction of the story. 

Keep riding, brother!

If flat is dead, why are all the street riders good at hang fives and doing flat moves on street. Flat will never died...

haha so Flatland is  the Lord . well Contest wise in America Flatland was dying. But this was blown out of the water by the attendance at Fight with Flight and the anticipated attendance at other american events. I think the death of Voodoo Jam was a Huge Wake up Call and the AM Flat Circuit a great motivation.

flat is gay

no, seriously, one street rider who was organizing an event and I did a show there, was surprised and he thought flat is dead in Latvia. Soo, some may think like that if they don't see anyone doing shows, making competitions and riding outside not in their garage :D

Well OK, we can credit the guy with doing whoppers a long time ago, but he's hardly an influence anymore.

If you do a tailwhip (in the air or on a bank), if you do a rollback, if you can hangfive (on a ledge), you are a flatlander.  I love flatland and I love to ride ramp, street and dirt, but my riding is always influenced some how by Flatland.
