Someone who skates purely because they enjoy it, and do so regardless to what ever people think of it. They live for skateboarding. Skaters are not allways good at landing ticks, but the enjoyment for the sport is what makes them skater. Most commonly seen wearing jeans and a hoody, brightly coloured trainers, and donning a New Era cap (with all the stickers on of course) to tame their long hair. Allthough there is no dress code, tracksuits will lose you any status as a true skater. Skaters wear what they think looks cool, and it isn't unusual to see them wearing something completly abstract. Most listen to either punk rock or hiphop, but again there is no rule. Most skaters skate the street (though some prefer vert/ramp) and wear no protection.
Anyone who skates because they enjoy it, no matter what anyone thinks.

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 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'.
