le skate

Hello.  The word of the day is le skate.  This means skateboarding.  A skateboard itself can also be called le skate or, in more antiquated and Académie style usage, une planche à roulettes.  (Skating is called le patinage.  Roller skating is called le roller or le patinage à roulettes).
  • La plupart des adeptes de skate ne considèrent pas leur discipline comme un sport à part entière, mais regardent la pratique de la discipline comme objet esthétique visuel aussi.
Most skateboarding aficionados don't think of their discipline entirely as a sport, but consider the practice as having an aesthetic visual goal as well.
