Everyone can fall in love - with fashionable sneakers, a skateboard or ... a skateboarder. But even if an advanced party-goer has not yet met on your way, it is always useful to learn to distinguish a rider from a fixer.

(they are riders, skateboarders, daughters)
Where did you come from: It's funny, but the fact is that in fact, California surfers invented a skateboard solely in order not to part with the board on land.
Party: One of the oldest and most widespread in Russia. Now among the riders you can meet girls. What are they doing? Ride on the boards and hone their skills, stuffing countless bumps and bruises.
Habitat: Not all places in the city are suitable for cunning skateboard techniques, so if a spot is found, it becomes a second home. In winter, the party moves to indoor skate parks. It makes sense to get acquainted with skaters when you arrive at the spot in only one case - if you are going to ride yourself. However, skaters can also be found at skate video presentations or punk rock concerts.
Chip: The cult film "Kings of Dogtown." Viewing required!
Slang: Spot is a skiing place. Locale - a skater, constantly rolling in one place. Ollie is the foundation trick with which skating begins: you need to jump in the air with the board.
How to find out: The main attribute of real skaters is riding shoes. A skateboarder should have several of them - you have no idea how fast they wear out! The skater dress code can be divided into two types: punk-style and rap-style. Punks love skinny, flannel shirts, and in skating they prefer the street style, in which tricks are performed on the street and with obstacles. Rap-style assumes freer clothes that do not constrain movement - half-pants and stretched T-shirts usually ride in flatland style, that is, on a flat surface. Clothing may well have a shabby look, with a trend of piercings, tattoos and long bangs.
