I guess that depends on if you look at it as crossing the line vs entering and leaving the zone.

If you talk about entering the zone, the very point at when you entering is the same point your leaving, just as soon as you have a skate breaking that area your "in it".
Like being in a pool. dip a toe in your in. Stick a toe out your not out.
