Electric skateboards are faster than conventional skateboards and provide better control, making them a popular alternative for skating sports in places like Colombia.

Electric skateboards with connected features, such as infrared connections, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, are gaining popularity in the global market. Technological advancements are emerging in the development of innovative and AI-powered electric skateboards.

According to the research report, "Colombia Skateboard Market Overview, 2028," published by Bonafide Research, the market is anticipated to add USD 9.57 Million by the end of 2028. The growing popularity of skateboarding as a recreational activity, as well as the emergence of extreme sports, is expected to boost the Colombian skateboard industry. Furthermore, the rising use of skateboards in schools and colleges as part of physical education curricula is likely to fuel skateboard demand throughout the forecast period. Rapid technological advancements and a rise in disposable income have increased the demand for skateboards. The increasing number of skate parks and competitions is also driving the skateboard market ahead. The skateboarding fad in Colombia originated as a result of boredom during the COVID-19 lockdown, but it quickly spread over many parts of the country as one of the fastest-growing.
Further, South America became home to multiple skate hubs, and today many of its countries host competitions and tours regularly. Mar del Plata (Argentina), Lima (Peru), Medellin (Colombia), the Galapagos Islands (Ecuador), and Florianopolis (Brazil) are some of the popular skate spots in South America. Additionally, more than 110 volunteer skateboarders from 15 countries joined up to construct a 1,200 m2 skateboarding hotspot in La Paz, Bolivia. Located at 3,600 metres above sea level, it’s not only one of the biggest destinations for skateboarders in South America; it’s also the highest in the whole world. Pereira is the biggest skate park in Colombia. This skate park features approximately 6,400 square metres of obstacles for skateboarding, roller skating, and BMX enthusiasts.
