My name is Aaron Kyro and I have been skateboarding for over 20 years. Over that time I have been sponsored by some of the world’s largest skateboarding brands including Volcom, Real, Thunder, Bones wheels, Swiss Bearings, and Circa shoes! I currently ride pro for Revive Skateboards.

Braille Skateboarding was created to help everyone learn how to skateboard. With our free tutorials and our full skateboarding lesson plan, Skateboarding Made Simple, you can be a great skateboarder!

Braille has a YouTube channel with over 5.6 million subscribers and counting. The core of our channel is skateboarding content and tutorials. We want to teach everyone to skateboard and show everyone the joy and excitement it can bring.

Here at Braille we want everyone to feel like they can progress on their board and learn to skate! That’s the basis that Braille is built off of. And we won’t stop until skateboarding is the most popular sport in the world.

Skateboarding Made Simple

I have been teaching people of all ages how to skateboard for the past several years and have found many things in common amongst new skaters.

I know what barriers skaters run into that cause them to not be able to land an ollie, kickflip, heelflip, or any other trick, get frustrated and give up. Just like any sport, persistence is key in skateboarding. So keep persisting and land those tricks!

Skateboarding does require practice and work and you don’t just wake up one morning and can land 360 flips every time. It is also true that there is an exact correct gradient to learning all of the tricks and exact ways to do each and every trick there is.

In Skateboarding Made Simple I unlock the secrets behind how the pros learn tricks and master them before going on to do them down stairs or on a rail.

Skateboarding Made Simple is the most in-depth collection of skateboarding tricks out there. We know that skateboarding is an uncomfortable scene when you’re first starting out. But, Skateboarding Made Simple is your guide and helps ensure you’re really comfortable on your board!

There are 9 volumes of Skateboarding Made Simple volumes. As you progress through them, you learn the basics of flatground tricks, skatepark etiquette, grinds and slides, mini ramps, intermediate and advanced flatground tricks. Think of it as your long-term skateboarding roadmap.

I break down each trick into all of its parts so each step can be practiced separately  before going on to learning the whole trick. By using this method, you can learn to land any trick every time.

Practice Steps

If you practice the correct steps of the trick, you will build up to attempting it and landing it. The key here is to practice it for a good amount of time. For the Ollie, you should spend at least 15 minutes on each step, and then if you can’t land it, go back and spend another 5 minutes on each step. As you roll through the practice steps, you’ll eventually land it.

Let’s take kickflips for example. If you’re having trouble landing with both feet, but know you can catch it with one foot, you know something needs to change. Skateboarding Made Simple will help you identify that, by breaking the trick down into several practice steps. Once you do that, you will be able to land it.

It is very important to start off on the right foot with learning any new skill or sport. Whenever learning a new skill, it can often be awkward or uncomfortable, but it’s also exciting and fun. Having some guidance will keep it more exciting, so you don’t end up quitting after you just started.

Skateboarding Made Simple gives you the proper steps to starting out your skating THE RIGHT WAY!
