Skaters can be any member of society but are most commonly males from the ages of 12-24. A skater was once able to be easily identified by his or her shoes, but due to the recent poseurdom on skateboard fashion this is harder to do. (Unless the skater has noticeable toe rips or gashes in his shoes from skateboarding.)
A skater is not to be confused with a poseur, which is someone who wears skateboarding clothes and tells grandiose tales of how he backside flipped a thirty set. A skater is also not to be confused with a kook, who is someone who sucks at skateboarding and has not yet risen to the level worthy of being called a skater.
Skater: "Why, what did I do?"
Cop:"DON'T TALK BACK TO ME!!! YOU'RE DOWN HERE WITH ALL YOUR BUDDIES F*CKING UP THIS PROPERTY DOING YOUR JUMPS! YOU NEED TO GO DO YOUR JUMPS AT THE SKATEPARK!!!!!"
Skater: It's called an ollie, and how does jumping on concrete fuck it up?"
Cop: That's it smart ass. PUT YOUR HANDS BEHIND YOUR BACK! NOW!!

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.
