Braille Skateboarding was founded in the idea that we want to push skateboarding all over the world. Skateboarding has given us so much and we want everyone to experience what it’s like to ride on a board and land a trick for the first time.
The Braille Army was started in 2015 as a way to help grow skateboarding.
The Braille Army is all of us. Every skateboarder and supporter of skateboarding across the globe working together to support one another and encourage others to start skateboarding.
Braille Army members (and if you are reading this you are a member) are working all over the globe to push skateboarding in their communities.
Skateboarding is incredibly creative and fun, but it can be challenging. Because of this some people give up. One of Braille’s purposes is to come up with ways to keep people skating. This is why we make YouTube tutorials and create lesson plans like Skateboarding Made Simple and Braille University.
We wanted to come up with a new way to track progression and create a system by which you can work to advance your skating. This takes it beyond the game of SKATE because not only can you complete against others, but you can push your own score higher and higher and compete against yourself.
The scoring system is incredibly simple and the more creative you get the better your score will be.
We call the tracking system the Skate I.Q.. How many tricks and combination of tricks can you land in 30 minutes.
Aaron explains the tracking system really well in this video.
The following is the basic points scoring system:
- Basic Riding 1 point
- Ollie 1 point
- Frontside 180 1 point
- Backside 180 1 point
- Pop Shove 1 point
- Heelflip 1 point
- Kickflip 1 point
From there you can combine any of the above tricks and add other combinations such as late flips, step offs, etc to up the score. Fakie is not a point. Only Switch and Nollie.
For example, a 360 Flip is 2 pop shoves plus a flip = 3 points. A Nollie 360 Flip is 4 points
You can see if you start adding lots of step offs or other combinations you could really get creative and really boost your I.Q.!
Start the timer and skate for 30 minutes and see what you can land. That is your Skate I.Q.
We are challenging skaters from all over the globe to show us their Skate I.Q. Create a YouTube video and challenge your friends! Let’s really get this going!
