SKATEBOARDING SLANG!

Terminology

For some parents, skateboarding is a different language. Here are 4 words to help you better understand what your children are saying!

POSER – this word is used to describe someone that looks like a skater but doesn’t actually skate.

STOKED – to be excited or to like something. The dude is “stoked” on his new board. He is “stoked” on the new trick he learned.

SKETCHY– not done very well, or untrustworthy. A poorly executed skateboarding trick can be called “sketchy”. The weather can be “sketchy”. A “sketchy” skateboard would be one that looks ready to fall apart. People can be “sketchy” too. You wouldn’t want a “sketchy” person watching your kids for the night.

SICK – means the same as “cool”, “awesome” or “rad”. Just about anything can be “sick”. You can land a sick trick, have a sick board or even skate at a sick spot!

Be sure to drop this terms into your conversations with your children to show them you’re not as old school as they think.

As always….THANKS FOR READING and HAPPY SKATEBOARDING!
