How to Wakeboard in Spanish

For any wakeboarders who plan on traveling to a Spanish-speaking country, hopefully this list will be useful for you. This list is based on my experience in Argentina. Many terms (trick names) translate directly but note that some terms vary by country (gasoline). If there are any terms that I missed, please let me know in the comments.

 

(wake)board: la tabla

boat: la lancha

wake: la ola/la estela

rope: la cuerda

handle: la manija

fat sacs: fat sacs

dock: el muelle

speed: la velocidad

gasoline: la nafta/gasolina/bencina (varies by country)

to ride: andar

to drive: manejar

to fall: caerse

to stop: parar

to fill: llenar

to empty: vaciar

ready/OK: vale/listo

trick: el truco

heelside/toeside: heelside/toeside

frontside/backside: frontside/backside

180/360/540/720/900: Same as english (ex. five-forty: cinco-cuarenta)

digger: pichazo

  1. Nice one:)
    In Costa Rica we usually use La estela for “wake” (vs. ola for “wave”).
    Also ciento ochenta (180), tres sesenta (360) etc.
    Gasoline=gasolina.
    Ready/OK: Listo.
    Digger? Pichazo 🙂
