A fruit booter is someone who believes that imitating skateboard culture will improve their social standing, but is unable to skateboard. They wear impractical plastic boots with wheels attached to the bottom as an excuse to hang out in skate parks and look like they are participating in an extreme sport without having to develop any skills. Because their "sport" (If jumping rope is a sport, I guess inline skating is too) is so often criticized, fruit booters usually have an irritable, defensive attitude when interacting with skaters and will typically insist that roller-blading is "better than skateboarding," thus alienating themselves from the skate community and remaining losers.
Skateboarder: "Hey pal, the city just opened up a new park. Lets go check it out."

Fruit Booter: "Sounds like a plan! Lemme just attach a pair of heavy, uncomfortable plastic boots to my feet, stuff my shoes in a backpack, and blow out my aromatherapy candles so we can go."

Skateboarder: "Why is the plastic dyed purple with swirls of yellow around the shiny silver buckles?"

Fruit Booter: "I've yet to determine my own sexual orientation!"

(The skateboarder, disgusted with his acquaintance's poor judgement and apparent lifestyle confusion, exits the scene)

A person who rollerblades.
Originally used by skateboarders who can't get over the fact that there are people who actually like things that they don't.

A derogatory name used by skateboarders to describe rollerbladers. Not all rollerbladers. Just the snotty ones that cut you off just after you drop in, and right before you're getting ready to set a grind.
"Get out of my way you fucking frootbooter!"

"Get of the planet you lame ass!"

a derogatory term used for rollerbladers. the term came about in the 90's during the rollerblading trend. rollerblading was generally viewed as dorky and not nearly as difficult as skateboarding, biking and other so called extreme sports.
don't those fruitbooters know they're not allowed in our skatepark?

man, my mom has been taking rollerblading lessons from some fruitbooter.
