skaters don't let friends rollerblade...
Skaters compete on skateboard. Fruit booters ride around on 'aggressive inline skates'.

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.

FUCK OFF!

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.

A Skater is somebody who rides a skateboard for a hobby. They dont have to be good to be a skater, they just have to skate. Skaters should be their own individual self and not like many poeple that just carry their boards and wear slipknot hoodies and burny 2 liners etc just to fit in and get this "skater image".
Dont you understand with out an example?

A skater: ANYONE who skateboards. Many people believe that skaters are destructive, and a general hazard to society. They seem to think that every skater also wears tight pants, smokes, has weed on them at all times, and is also out to destroy everything they see. Although many people think this way, it's simply not true.

A skater, like I said, is anyone who rides along on a piece of wood attached to wheels. They don't have to fit into any requirements to be a skater, they should just have fun when they do it. They don't have to only own band shirts, or have bangs hanging over one eye, or shop at hollister, or dye their hair black, blue and red, or mosh at every concert they go to, but by all means, they CAN. They can do all of that and still skate, yes, without risking the chance of getting shot by those ever-voilent skaters (I was kidding about that part, incase you didn't catch that). That's one of the many things that's so great about skating.

There are a ton of reasons to skate. Oddly enough, none of them threaten the downfall of the economy.

People don't skate so they can wear tight pants and Emerica shirts. They don't skate to do drugs. They don't skate for the attention. They don't skate so they can tag every inch of cement there is. They don't skate because they want to be stereotyped these things, either. (Oh, and if you do skate so you can get labeled or because you think you'll earn brownie points with your friends, PLEASE, for the sake of humanity, fall off a cliff.)
Way back when I was in middle school, I just began to learn to skateboard. I loved it because it was so fun, and was a much better hobby than starring at a computer screen all day (Needless to say, my former hobby). I wanted to go to the public school in my area, but my friend's mom told my parents that if I did, BECAUSE I SKATEBOARD, I would get in to the 'wrong crowd' and become a pot head, crap like that...

people who stereotype skaters need to die. 'Nuff said.

Someone that skateboards and loves it. Someone who only skates in front of people to get attention is not a skater. Skateboarders are not a stereotype. Not all skaters do drugs, not all of them are jerks, it depends on the person. If you run into a skater asshole, they'd be an asshole even if they weren't a skater, so don't group them all into one category. Not all skaters wear skinny jeans, not all of them listen to rock, not all of them wear big ass shoes, it's their own style. Skateboarding is not only for white people, yes there are skaters in Mexico. Yes there are skaters in China. And yes, there are skaters in India. So if a black kid skates, he's not necessarily white washed. Yes there are female skateboarders, not all of them are dikes or lesbos, again, that's just them. They'd be a lesbian or dike anyway if they didn't skate. And yes, there are girly skaters. It doesn't matter if you're good or bad, just as long as you love what you get out of skateboarding. Obviously, you'll get more credit if you're good, but that's just how the world works. Just to say it again, skaters are not a stereo type, it's not a fad. Skateboarding is a kind of life. It's different from other lifestyles, but not one skaters life is exactly the same as another. All skaters are different, so don't judge till you know them as a person
Go Skate, love it, enjoy it, live it. Be a skater, whatever you want to call it.
