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?

someone who enjoys it like a hobby or fad, thats just not right! A real skater is someone who starts skating because their bored or someone who just likes the feel of skateboarding. if you don't know what skateboarding is, then you must live in nowhere ville. Most people think their druggies or pot heads. Their not, because skating is the greatest high you can ever get. Plus you never crash off that high.
Skater: Hey man, you wanna go skate

man: Umm.... whats that?

skater: You know what, never mind, lets just go back to your house in Nowhere Ville!

man: Umm....yeah, what?

n. A person who skateboards or rollerblades. That's what I thought a skater was, but apparantly there are certain things associated with it (and I don't even skate). There should be no stereotypes attached to this word, or to any other person for that matter, but sadly, there are.
Billy skateboards, therefore he is a skater.

1) Someone who can skateboard. Duh.
2) Something stupid townies like to call people because they like rock music and where jeans, hoodies, band tees and converse/vans shoes.
1)"Yes! I finally cracked that nose grab over the bench!!"

2) Person: "Have you heard the knew system of a down song?"
Townie: "Your gay, you listen to bare poor music!"
Townie 2: "Innit!"
