For some time now, Aaron Kyro, the mastermind behind Braille Skateboarding, has been inviting his YouTube channel subscribers to send in skateboards (or parts thereof) for himself and friends to try skating — and breaking.
Most of the box breaks and subsequent test rides are filmed at Fremont Skatepark in the the San Francisco Bay Area. If you happen to be visiting SF, be sure to swing on by for a chance to see Kyro and crew trying out the new-fangled skateboards.
Among the more popular episodes of Braille’s You Make It, We Skate It series, are those involving LEGO creations. They’ve already had three LEGO-inspired submissions, and another one of their own making for an episode of Skate Everything Wars.
