Cambridge English Dictionary states that culture is, "the way of life, especially the general customs and beliefs, of a particular group of people at a particular time."
I think (I hope) he may have been using the word in accordance with the definition and not how it's used colloquially.
We, as a society often equate culture with race; as if culture is an expression of race. It's not. 'Race' is bullshit, and while culture is often attached to our minds by way of our eyes, 'culture' is actually only just a word used to describe the situation when a community has established a shared identity, and then created ways by which they can express it.
There are cultures and subcultures within Airsoft, just as there are in Canada, or the Earth, or Mars.
