I need to know if there are different known words in Spanish for skateboard and the sport of skateboarding. I am already aware of "andar en monopatin". Do you know any others'

It's been a while since these were posted, but I'd like to add a question. Is "monopatinar" accepted as a verb? My books teach it as "hacer monopatin."

Yes, this was the word I had never heard before, as our family is from PR. Patineta. Thank you for the info.

I think patineta is the word used in Mexico, too. "To skateboard" is "andar en patineta," and "to do skateboard tricks" can be "hacer acrobacias en patineta."Is that the word your daughter's teacher used? If so, she was correct.

You can use "monopatinaje" for skateboarding or "montar en monopatín" to go skateboarding, but the word for a skateboard is monopatín.

In Argentina some time ago the word "patineta" was used for skateboard. And the action was "andar en patineta".
Nowadays we use the word "skate", but we tend to pronounce a vowel sound similar but softer to the Spanish "e" before the "s", and the sport is again "andar en skate"

Thanks Eddy. I was confused when my daughter's Spanish teacher used a word I was very unfamiliar with. I even went to the extent to tell my daughter the teacher used the wrong word (which i don't normally do). My daughter takes everything her teacher says as the law. I just wish she was more aware.

My answer is not definitive. Wait until some "natives" come on line and they may well have other names. What I quoted is for mainland Spain. As a matter of interest, which word did she use'
