A person that participates in snowboarding, wakeboarding, skateboarding, windsurfing, longboarding, freeboarding, surfing, wakeskating, wakesurfing, skimboarding, kitesurfing, flowriding or any sport that shares similar traits as those listed above. These people tend to be down to earth, and share a special passion for their sport, life and the elements. They can be identified by the clothing they wear usually brand names associated with board sports like Quiksilver, Forum, Billabong, LibTech ect. Boarders lead a laid back lifestyle often forced into doing slave labour so that they can continue to pursue their passion. Often dreaming that one day they will be good enough to be sponsored and be paid to do what they love. When asked to describe their sport they often go on long rants about how amazing and deeply connected they are with everything around them and how the world is a perfect place when they are riding. A very spiritual experience.
There goes a boarder now you can tell because he has some sort of board like device with him/her and the intention to ride it on some gnarly terrain.
