    Street=riding on the street, tricking off ledges, benches, stairs and all that.
    Vert=Half pipes, big ramps.
    park=skate parks

    And I dont really know how to explain flatland, so I'll let somebody else explain it.

    Flatland is usually rolling along and doing a crapload of tricks where both wheels rarely, if ever, leave the ground - usually involving pegs and sometimes brakes.

    And there's dirt, which is.. uh, riding on dirt
    Jumps, rollers, berms, etc,

    Not that it matters but:
    Vert= halfpipe
    Street=Handrails, ledges, gaps of some sort
    Park= Skateparks
    Dirt=Trails, dirt jumps and such...
    Flatland=Riding on the flat ground doing tricks without ramps, like hang fives, and megaspins (i dont know any other flatland tricks)
