Savings, style, and skateboarding. That was our focus when we assembled this package for you to buy for that special skater in your life. Visit our online shop to order this package today!

Blank Complete Skateboards


Many pros tell the story of their first skateboard as a Christmas Present. Well, let’s make that a reality. Buying a skateboard for someone else can be hard. You don’t know the graphic they like, their size, etc… Well, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

While we have many complete skateboards to offer, our favorite is our Blank Completes. They’re made as the same, durable materials from our other skateboards, but considerably cheaper because there’s no graphic. If you’ve been looking to buy a board for some time, this might be the exact right time!

Braille Beanies


A must-have for all skateboarders this winter. Available in either red or blue, these beanies are designed to keep your head warm and make you look good in the process! Go ahead and represent the Braille Brand while skating.

For this upcoming Holiday season, give the gift of warmth and adorn a skateboarder’s noggin in a finely woven Braille Beanie. The best part? These beautiful Braille Beanies are one-size-fits-all! For your convenience, we have made these readily available in our Online Shop. 

Varsity Jacket

This Holiday season Braille introduced our new Varsity Jacket. Featuring the classic “b” Braille logo, this navy and grey varsity jacket is sure to turn heads and keep the wearer warm while skating. Made from quality fabric and available in many different sizes, the Braille Varsity Jacket is the perfect gift for that special skater in your life! To make things as easy as possible, we’ve included a sizing chart in our Online Shop. Check out the Online Shop and order this jacket today!


First Try Hoodies

Another warm winter wearable that is sure to bring joy and comfort to any skateboarder, our First Try Hoodies are available in black and feature “first try!” printed in white. 25% of all profit made on these First Try Hoodies is donated directly to the First Try Foundation.

The First Try Foundation was created as a resource for people worldwide to acquire a skateboard, regardless of their finances. Braille Skateboarding wants to give back to the skateboarding community, and when more people are skateboarding, everyone in the industry wins!

So spread some Holiday joy not only to that special skater in your life, but to less fortunate skateboarders around the world through the purchase of a First Try Hoodie. Check them out in our Online Shop and place your order today!

Let’s face it; no matter where you’re located in the world, some days it’s simply not possible to go out and skate.
