There is quite a big difference, but there are also similarities. They both take tons of practice, focus, athleticism and confidence. And I don’t think any aspect is better than the other.

I’ve found in my experience that vert takes a ton of repetition and endurance training. For example, you could spend years just practicing airs and the tricks you already know, and could go from am to pro just by the style and height at which you do your tricks.
