sk8er

noun; blending
A person who happens to roller skate or skateboard; usually in most extreme of descriptions This was a word that was taken from the similarities in the sounds of the number '8' and the a person who typically roller skates or skateboards. The ending of skate was replaced probably to show a sense of uniqueness to the group and not a general distinction. Now it has almost undergone a pejoration where it has come to mean a slacker in school(i.e. he is such a skater).
 
He is totally a sk8er.
Etymology : 'Skate' + '8' + 'er' blended 'skate' zero derived + noun suffix 'er'
