No, you are only a pro if YOU are scratched up, sometimes, you can be a pro and not be scratched up if you are a SUPER pro
no such thing as a "fake" skateboard, the only difference is quality.
There is now way you can tell. Pro Skateboard decks where made from the 60´s to today. They were most common in the 80´s when a pro was considered as someone who had a board produced by a company with his name on it. A pro was usually involved in the design of the deck as no deck resembled the others. Today most skateboards have the same shape and are only distinguished by size and graphics.
