What is a skater? A skater is anyone that loves the feeling of freedom
they get when skating. Skaters come in all ages with all types of
personalities. It can be the boy next door or the punk rocker down the
street. It can be the nerd that never leaves his computer except for
skating or the group of Goth kids that live in town.

Skaters love the feeling they get when they do an incredible jump perfect
every time. They love the thrill of pushing themselves beyond their
limits and climbing new heights and reaching new goals.

What types of skaters are there?

There are several different types of skaters and each type requires
different equipment. The most common type of skater is the roller skater.
This group includes kids and adults of all ages. Usually this type of
skating is done at a skating rink and they either wear roller skates or
inline skates. You can also purchase outdoor skates that you can wear
anywhere.

Another popular type of skater is the ice skater. Ice skating is done by
many just for fun in ice rinks located all over the world. However, it is
also many professional ice skaters that perform in competitions for
metals. Some of these have become quite famous. The performance that a
figure skater provides is amazing and takes years of practice and
patients. These skaters are to be greatly admired.

Skateboarders are another type of skater that has grown in popularity
over the years. Skateboarders make up a unique group of people that love
to have fun and spend time together. This type of skating requires skill
and a desire for excitement.
Are there stereotypes about skaters?

The answer is yes. Unfortunately, there are many people that have the
wrong idea about the skater lifestyle. This is especially true when it
comes to skateboarders. Due to the fact that many of them roam the city
streets and other areas searching for a place to ride others look at them
in a negative way. They describe these skaters as dropouts and trouble
makers. Many believe they are throwing away their life and that they have
no respect for the law. Others look at them as being dirty and don’t want
them in their neighborhood.

However, this is not normally the case. Most skateboarders are good,
educated honest people that just enjoy having a lot of fun and
socializing with others that enjoy the same things. They love the thrill
of skating and take pride in what they do. They spend many hours
practicing and learning new tricks and many skateboarders become
extremely famous for their abilities as well.
