Intro: How to Be Like a Skater
This will teach you how to be a skater without being a poser.
Step 1: Clothes
Hat (Element, DC, ect.)

Jeans or Gym Shorts
Skate Shoes (DCs, Vans, Enties, Fallens, Nike 6.0, Nike SBs, DVS etc.)

Here is a little skater-speak dictionary.
Only choose 5 or 10 of them. I use poser, chud, armor, beast, skater chick, lid, carving and
Poser - A wanna-be skater
Armor - pads
Beast - awesome
Acid Drop - a drop used to skate, ollie, kickflip, etc. down
Skater Chick- a girl that skates
Spore- a new skater
Stunt dubz- someone who does the same trick as someone else to show they can do it
Nose- front of deck
Chud- uneven pavement
Lid- helment or hat
Scrape- Rental equipment
Oil check- purposly moving to the side before a trick
Grommet or grom- novice skater
Vannila- no thrills
carving- skating in an arc or back and forth
Tweak- pain caused by getting served
Step 3: How Not to Be a Poser
-Don't use the same brand as somebody else just because they used it.
-Don't wear your skater clothes 24/7.
-Don't lie on what you can and can't do.
-Don't Suck (practice)
