A person who enjoys just skating for a living and doesnt try to be anything that their not. People who understand what skaters do and why they do it usually i get along with. I'd rather be kickfliping a 10 stair rather than smoking pot or any shit like that. People think that skaters dress a certain way, well they dont skaters dress how the want to, whether it be baggy jeans or tight jeans, even though its easier to do tricks in loose jeans. Skaters have different personalities some (like me) dont respect the signs that say no skateboarding, others respect them so they dont get in trouble with the popos. You cant really classify skateboarders its just a way of life, a skateboarders culture is different than ANYbody else. When people say that all skaters ever do is call people posers cause their just starting it not really true. not a lot of skaters do that cause at one point in time they were just starting too.
Cop: The sign says no skateboarding...can you skater punks not read?
Skater: yeah we can read we just dont care.
Cop: well skater punk how would you like to go to jail for being a smartass?
that was a real conversation that me and my brother had with a cop.

A skater is a human being who enjoys riding a skateboard because it is fun. a lot of skaters could be classified as 'punks' but this is just a stereotype. true, some skaters so wear tight jeans and a pair of emericas, but a lot of them just dress 'normally'.
there are vert skaters and street skaters. vert skaters skate in halfpipes. street skaters skate stairs and ledges and such. street is currently more popular than vert, mainly because it is easier to do. not to say that it requires less skill; I mean that street requires no ramp, therefore it can be done in more places that vert.
skateboarders are often said to be druggies, but this is simply not true... True skateboarders have no use for drugs. It's all about landing those tricks! landing a trick is the ultimate high.
I could say a lot more but i don't have a lot of time to write so I'll end it hear.
skateboarding is not a fad, it's a way of life.
while i may not skateboard every day, i do it for the right reasons... not to get girls or to cash in on the rise in popularity that skateboarding has suddenly taken.
Normally skaters are fine. It's when you get these elite skater assholes who call everyone a poser
and make fun of beginners. That is where skaters get a bad reputation as punk and assholes.
Beginner: Hi! Can you guys show me how to do that?
"Elite" asshole: NO YOU POSER, FUCKIN' POSER, POSER ASS BITCH, IF YOU WEREN'T A GAY FAG POSER FAG ASS, THEN YOU'D BE A BIGGEST POSER IN POSER-VILLE!
A skater is someone who skateboards. Whether they be good or bad, it only should count if they enjoy what they get out of skating. If you only skate to earn credit at school...i hate to label ya, but thats what you call a poser...
the fags on here that say you have to be good to ba considered a skater, or people who think all skaters are potheads. FUCK YOU.
Somebody who will do something fun instead of drink, smoke, spit, swear, fight unlike kevs
Skater 1 "Lets go skatin dude"
Skater 2 "Why not"
Skater 3 "Lets see if we can 360 flip that ledge over there"
skaters don't let friends rollerblade...
Skaters compete on skateboard. Fruit booters ride around on 'aggressive inline skates'.
1.) Someone who wears baggy clothes, i.e. hoodies, jeans etc. These so-called 'skaters' can't always skate, but townies like to call them skaters because they reckon it's an insult.
2.) (the REAL definition) Someone who loves to skate (and can actually do it), not just some poser who thinks they are a skater just because they wear skate clothes. A skater can be anyone - grunger, goth, hippie, punk, mosher or even a stupid townie.
Darren is a real skater - he can actually STAY ON his board for more than 3.02 seconds.
Basically, a skater is just that. Someone who skateboards. You need to put no stereotype upon us-in fact, i know a chav who skates! Skaters wear whatever they want to, and because of this often appear non-conformist, however they wear what they feel is comfortable.
On the other hand, just wearing skate clothes does not make you a poser. Many people wear skate shoes because they are comfy-thats wot theyre made for (apart from skating). However, wearing skate clothes and claiming to be a skater, without the ability to even do an ollie is being a poser.
And hey-being a skater doesnt mean you do drugs-i dont smoke weed, i dont smoke, but i skate. Sure, some skaters do weed, but its their body to fuck up.
Most skaters dont mind bmxers or inline skaters, everyone can use the park. And yeah, course we piss people off by street skating-thats part the fun. Lighten up, dont be so materialistic. We're out having fun, all you can do is stand around and complain that we're having more fun than you.
Skater 1: Woah! Just landed a 180 earlygrab roastbeef off the flatbank!
Skater 2: Rad
