Hola Martin

The use of articles in Spanish can be influenced by various factors, and there isn't a strict rule that covers all situations. However, I can provide a general guideline:

Using articles ("el," "la," "los," "las")

Nouns with specificity: When referring to specific activities or challenges, especially if they are well-defined, articles are used.

Desde el surf hasta la escalada. (From surfing to climbing).
Omitting articles
 
General or abstract concepts: When talking about activities in a more general or abstract sense, articles may be omitted.
 
Conquistando retos nuevos. (Conquering new challenges).

Remember that this is a general guideline, and there may be exceptions based on context and individual expressions. It's always beneficial to expose yourself to various examples to develop a more intuitive understanding of when to use or omit articles in different contexts.

Un saludo
 
Silvia
