Kickflipping a Glass Skateboard

Is Kickflipping a glass skateboard possible?

Braille skateboarding started December 8th, 2005 when Aaron Kyro uploaded his very first video to a relatively unknown platform called “YouTube”. His skateboard company had cut him from their team and he had hours of footage that needed a home. For the next 10 years, he uploaded skate parts and skateboarding tutorials. 

After over 10 years of grinding out content Braille Skateboarding hit 500k subscribers March 30th, 2015. On February 26th, 2015 Gabe Cruz skated a Walmart board and this was the first spark and clue that the channel was changing from just how-to videos to also include entertaining content that kept people watching longer. 

July 9th, 2016 was the first glass skateboard video and really the point of take off for Braille Skateboarding. Since then they have gotten over 51 million views on just glass skateboard videos, over 1.4 billion total channel views and will reach 5 million subscribers in 2020. 

Today Braille Skateboarding launched a new glass skateboard video and will keep publishing this series for the rest of 2020 as a way to say thank you to their fans for their support for the past 5 years and to pay respect to the series that helped them become one of the fastest-growing skateboard companies in the world.
