1) People who can actually do shit, and do it for the sake of skating, for the pure joy. They don't just give up if they injure themselves once.
2) People who only skate cause they think it's cool and actually can't skate but promote themselves as skaters just because they bought a board. Also, the only other skateboarder they know is Tony Hawk. Commonly think that decks are in your backyard, where you put your lawn furniture on.
2) real: nice deck, dude.
fake: um...thanks? My mom just had it repainted.
real: huh? no...deck...you know...part of your board...you helflip on it and do McTwists...
fake: hey..aren't McTwists some sort food at McDonalds...
real: OK then...*coughcouchsneeze*loser...
skateboarders 2: cool, i saw some new stuff there.
skateboarders 1: awsome
1. Real skater, that respects other sports (BMX, aggressive skate). Usually, these people are decent skaters.
2. Poser. These people hate "spacewasters" and "fruitbooters" to assuage there own feelings of self loathing. These people can be found sitting on top of a quarterpipe, wondering if they might get hurt trying an ollie.
Skateboarder: Then do it.
Poser: I will, as soon as I figure out this whole dropping in thing.
poser skater: 1) skateboards to be "cool". usually start skateboarding right after they hang up their jockstraps.2) skateboards to get recognized by girls or some other kind of pussy excuse. they but a target board n think that they can automatically do a 900.
