Welcome To The World of Skateboarding
By now you’ve probably heard that our mission is to push skateboarding all over the world as well as make skateboarding simple for those who are eager to learn. But because not all areas have a skate shop, we created our own Braille Online Skate Shop.
Unfortunately, accessibility to skateboarding can often be a huge barrier for new skaters. And the last thing you want to do is go looking for a new board at Walmart. How are you expected to buy a skateboard then learn how to skate when your nearest local skate shop is hours away from you?
We offer a huge variety of skateboarding products and accessories in the Braille Online Skate Shop to keep you stocked up on all the latest Braille gear. We also offer high-quality skateboards, trucks, wheels and anything else you need. If it’s going to help you progress as a skateboarder, chances are we’ve got it in the shop for you!
We want you to have access to professional skateboarding equipment no matter where you may be located. While we do believe in supporting your local skateboarding shops and participating in any form of skateboarding event in your community, sometimes these things simply aren’t offered where you are living.
Wherever you may be, we have you covered. To give you an idea of the kinds of items the Braille Online Skate Shop carries, allow us to introduce you to some of our favorite products!
Below, you’ll find links to go straight to the Braille Online Skate Shop and pick some of these up for yourself.
Skateboarding Made Simple
The first product we’d like to highlight is Skateboarding Made Simple Volumes 1-7. SMS 1-7 are designed to teach you everything from riding basics to performing advanced flat ground tricks like the Hardflip and Bigflip.
Aaron put his blood, sweat and tears into this series. As a result, it helped countless people learn how to skate. If you want to learn how to skate, this is the best way to do it!
There is even an entire volume dedicated to helping you learn how to drop in and skate mini-ramps, quarter pipes, etc! Skip the shipping and get straight to learning, as all 7 volumes are digital copies that you will be able to download immediately after purchase.
Setting up your own customized skateboard can be an expensive undertaking. If you’re skating hard enough, you can also expect to break that fancy new board of yours within a few months, weeks, or even days!
We don’t want you to break the bank, so we started offering Blank Completes. The same high-quality, professional-level skateboards at a fraction of the cost, blank completes are the most affordable way to skate.
Though the board may be blank in design, we’ll include a free sticker pack with any purchase of a blank complete so that you can customize it to your liking. Check out our Blank Completes in the online shop for more details!
