A skater is someone who owns a skateboard and is either learning, or trying to learn how to skate. Posers are just following the fad and are nothing to worry about, they will be over it in about a week as soon as they figure out you actually have to WORK.
Skaters are generally nice to beginners and are willing to help them get off the ground. If you see a beginner that's having trouble, remember what happened the first time YOU tried to ollie... either that or try it yourself.
A skater is dedicated and wont give up
Skaters can be either guys or girls.. yes GIRLS CAN SKATE so get over it
That's a skater
skater: don't give up, try and try again, u'll land that trick if you get up when you fall, and ignore the pain.

One who skateboards. Does not only apply to punks and people who dress "skater", for instance a lot of gangstas skate too.

Skaters skate for the fun of it, not cause someone tells them too, not cause it's cool, not to look good, not to get the girls (ok sometimes to get the girls, but not as a main purpose).
Person 1: Look at that skater
Person 2: He's not a real skater, he's wearing a hawk shirt.
Person 3 (gangsta): jeah dem posuhs iz ghey. Me n' ma boyz wuz poppin dem bigspins and bombin dem trains G

a person that simply likes to skate and doesnt care about anything else, what people think of him or what goes on. a real skater could care less about his appearence, all he needs is his skate board and a nice skate spot. so forget the stupid shopping for skate clothes just to look like a skater, because thats going to come off as a poser. a real skater only needs his skateboard and doesnt worry about being one.
i was going over at my friends house because hes a skater and has a nice rail.

a real person that loves skate-boarding and lives for it.they actually grow up doing what they want and arent posers that wear the clothes and say they can skateboard when they dont even know what trucks are or what spitfire is.
people stero-type way too much and say oh,a skater is someone with greasy hair and fucked up clothes..wrong.

the person likes to be original and does not give a fuck what the world thinks.

they are usually hilarious with an exellent sense of humor and love to make people laugh with trying crazy,narley things,stunts,and tricks.

people who say sk8r are indeed,fucking lame.

skateboarding is about being free,not giving up,feeling the wind on your face,not giving a fuck about anything else in the world,that burst of adrenaline that hits you everytime you get on a skateboard.

anyone who never has skateboarded has no clue of how great it feels to be free basically.

so think again,next time you stero-type or call yourself a real skateboarder.
skater poser:yeah,i did a kickflip today..

me:cool..so what kind of trucks do you have?

skater poser:uh..ford?

me: (just shakes head walks away.)

A skater is someone usually with long hair and baggy clothes who loves to skate. Not all skaters are bad. The only gay skaters are just wannabes who just hold the board(usually hudson)and bear such slogans as ' Skate Or Die' and 'Skateboarding is not a crime'.
