One who rides a skateboard. Amount of skill is arguable, although generally being able rough out a 90 turn qualifies you. Being a skater has nothing to do with fashion, taste in music, sexual preference, manner of speaking or any of that. If you skate, you're a skater. If you dress skate, but can't, you're a poser. If you don't dress skate and don't skate, hell, you might just be normal.
Wow, check out that hot skater! Why is he wearing Adidas?

A person that skate boards. It doesn't matter what you wear. You can dress "Preppy" and skate. It doesn't matter what race or gender you are either. You don't have to skate good to be a skater. You don't have to own a board. You can use somebody else's. The music you like-DOESN'T MATTER. A "Skater" is exactly what it sounds like.
:) Skater's are pretty cool. Such as... I am one myelf.
