A skater is either a skate boarder, a BMX rider or a blader. Contrary to common belief they are just as hard as each other, they are just hard in different ways. There are 3 types of skatepark that I know of vert, street and park. Vert is halfpipes and vertical drops, some in-vert and roll-ins. Street is rails and stairs etc,. Park is ramps, mini-ramps, spines, boxes, fun-boxes etc,etc.
I am aware of the skaters (name and class undefined)who hang around the skate park with their slut-goth girls and smoke, drink and swear at passer-by's. Rarely are any of these fags any good.
Real skaters are friendly people, who go to work and don't do drugs normally. They don't beat up beginners or terrorize people. Some people watch TV for entrainment, we skate, same same is the way i look at it.
Me: Lets go skating on Saturday.
Shaun: I'll come at 10;30, is that alright.
Now this is how it doesn't happen:
Fag 1: Lets "skate" on Saturday.
Fag 2: K, i will bring some girls so we can impress them because we are pro skaters.
Fag 1: K let's go at 11.
Later Fag 1 and Fag 2 turn up at the skate park and Me and Shaun are already there. They are such fail that their girls ignore them. LOL they fail.
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 person that skates....does there really need to be a stereotype applied to it?

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.
