Let's say someone asks me why I like to snowboard and answer with because I like to speed. What I am trying to say is that I like to move fast. Is it natural to use the verb speed in this context? Would it be more natural to use speed as a noun as in because I like speed?

"Speed" as a verb is chiefly used in the context of driving a vehicle above the speed limit.

"I like going fast" or "I like the sense of speed" would be preferable to me over "because I like speed" even though it is grammatically correct - there are some contexts where it refers to amphetamine use.
