Spain has traditionally been one of the top countries for skateboarding, thanks primarily to Barcelona. Barcelona is widely regarded as the world's best skateboarding city and a hotbed for the sport. While Los Angeles is considered the cradle of contemporary skateboarding, Barcelona's skateboarding culture exploded following the 1992 Summer Olympics, which modernised and altered the city. The Olympics and Paralympics were held in the same city for the first time, and a large amount of money was spent on infrastructure, making everything wheelchair accessible, and building plazas and parks. Barcelona's beauty, laid-back feel, and range of outstanding skate spots have made it a must-see destination for skateboarders. While skateboarding is regarded as a joyful activity and the most popular sport in Spain, Injuries are also unavoidable, and they can be fatal in some cases. According to a recent study on injuries during skating, the participants were young male adults, and the study concluded that the lower limbs were identified as more likely to suffer injuries, with a substantial number of instances impacting joints and ligaments. Within the current sample of responses, ankle sprains were shown to be the most prevalent injury as well as the most likely to recur. This could stifle the expansion of the Spanish skateboard market.

Rising demand for electric skateboards, as well as quick technological improvements, are likely to drive market expansion in Spain. The increased popularity of extreme sports is driving the region's market. As a result, the Spanish electric skateboard industry is expected to expand as outdoor sports become more popular. The role of social media in the spread of new sports among society's last mile is critical. The youth segment is the most involved in this sport, and they are always researching new types of equipment required for skating on social media. The millennial demographic is an active social media viewer of sports news networks and sports celebrities, and this tendency is projected to continue. Due to the widespread dispersion of retail locations throughout the nation, the offline sector dominated the market in terms of distribution channels. In Spain, several shops specialise in and sell skateboards, including Furtivo Skateboarding, State BCN, Amigos Skate Shop, Tactic Surf Shop, and Hey Ho. The online category is anticipated to expand significantly during the projection period due to rising internet usage, convenience, time savings, and other considerations.
