sidewalk surfer

sidewalk surfer

Someone who rides a skateboard, especially as a means of transportation rather than to do tricks. This town is full of sidewalk surfers zipping by on their way to class or work. I used to be a sidewalk surfer when I was in college, but after breaking my ankle I never got back on a board again.
