According to many people, someone who skates just to be cool, or someone who says he can skate, but he really can't. These people are heavily bashed by the "real skaters" (their opposites). Quite frankly, as a skater, I just enjoy the sport for what it is. I don't see how a piece of wood with wheels underneath can destroy or boost someone's reputation; it's just an object! I think everyone has the right to skate (even those that some call posers) because we should all just have fun. I'm not supporting "fake skaters" or their motives, but I'm just defending the rule that we should just do it for fun and forget the other stuff. Hell, this "poser" subject has such a big impact in the skater community in general, some skaters just try too hard to be original. once again, we should all just enjoy it.
Hardcore skater dude: look at that dude. he just skates around to look cool! what a faggot!
Me: Alright, man. We're not in control of him. Let him do what makes him happy.
Hardcore skater dude: come on bro! look at him! look at the Nike 6.0s and kr3w shirt he's wearing! what a fucking poser skater!
Me: Whatever, man. Just leave this alone. Let's go skate. Forget about your thing with the posers man. Just skate!
a poser skater is someone who pretands to be a skater. they are usually people that go to skateparks all the time but just sit on the benches with their board trying to look cool. they usually dress and act like the stereotype but when it comes to actually getting on the board they have no clue what they are doing. you can usually tell if someones a poser skater if they say they can do a boardslide and they bottom of their deck isnt even scratched. it actually doesnt matter if you suck or if you just started but when you say you can do things that you have never tried before because they look "easy" then your a poser. it also doesnt really matter if you wear skate brand tees if you actually like the style just dont wear them if you think it makes you look cool.
skater: dude, you are such a f*cken poser skater
poser: omg no im not!!!!!111 ive lyk sk8ed lyk all my life, i kno lyk all the kewl tricks and stuff dude!!!11
skater: oh yeah do you know the difference between a frontside 50-50 and a backside 50-50?
poser: pssh lyk totally
skater: then do a frontside 50-50
poser: lyk okaaay!!!11
(poser goes over to a legde, but since they dont know how to even do an ollie, they jump of the board onto the legde and since they are too "Kewl" to use a helmet, they bash their head into the cement and get knocked unconcious)
skater: thats what you get you f*ucken poser
a poser skater is someone who has a skateboard, but never rides it. they make fun of beginners, when in reality, the beginners are better than them. poser skaters are usually rich preps just skateboarding bacause the devil (avril lavigne) says its cool. they think their better than real skateboarders just cause they have a board
poser skaters suck, thats the end

2. Never won a game of SKATE
