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.
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.
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.
"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!
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.
