A skater is a person just like me and you. Skating is more than a sport, it's a passion and a way of life for some of us. I've been skating for about 8 years, and have only come across 2 "assholes." The stereotypes these days are out of control.
Skaters generally listen to all kind of rock. We enjoy doing what we do.
Running from the cops
Getting kicked out of public places
Busting our balls to do a trick
Skating til the sun goes down
Chilling with friends
Skaters have real friends. People who will stick by them through thick and thin, not just people that they go out and party with. There's a few of us, but we're a close group.
