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.
