Reddit is already the Braille of skating; it's not surprising that some deluded, overly positive sk8r got their raccoon tail keychain in a twist while being hit in the face with a whirlwind of politics. Like turning on a bright light to a dim idiot who has to look away in fear, and smash the report button. Or a Scientologist runs that subreddit, however that shit works.

Start fresh with a 30+ skate one, see if Aaron Kyro's chinless face comes sniffing around trying to be relevant.

Would be nuts to find out this entire sector of skateboarding they have made for themselves is all a creation of the church of Scientology, and to find out the majority of the copious profits they make all go back to Scientology. Thats my conspiracy theory.

That’s not a conspiracy theory, though; that’s actually exactly what’s happening. Not some big secret, though. Braille is a part of the Church’s “youth outreach” program.
I wonder if the Kyro fella would defeat Lord Xenu in a game of skate? Better yet... what about a game of skate played on a cheeseburger with trucks/wheels mounted on it?

how does braille convert their fans into followers?

More like “prime their fans” rather than outright conversion. This is done simply enough, through indoctrination.

Yea they are super lame and do not cater to us. but they sell more decks than anyone else and have a closer connection to the kids that are just starting, so it is a valid topic of discussion in a skate forum. While we are on the topic, fuck all the braille people.

Who gives a fuck about Braille? It's geared towards 12 year olds,

Parents of 12 year olds.

They (Scientology) are so fucking dangerous, and their indoctrination is the exact same as that of any other predator, they groom and suppress. They have been responsible for some straight up awful shit, beyond just the obvious of killing peoples dogs and locking up people in their compound. That rabbit hole goes deep. 2 years ago I found out I had a half sister that was deep in Scientology and raised in it and eventually made her way up into the seaorg before escaping from the compound. Some of the shit she has said about it is fucking terrifying.

Fuck Braille and fuck Scientology.

This.

Look up what he's saying about the SeaOrg.

Shit is so fucked. this isnt paranoia or conspiracy stuff. Plenty of reputable docs and reading material exists.

This article is 19 years old, but a good read. http://content.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,156952,00.html

Chadd,

You stole SLAP’s heart with the Fetty new break, and then pretty much disgusted us with becoming a sensationalist skate version on infowars. 

Come back to the light, we miss you.

My dad got into an argument with a Scientologist handing out flyers outside a Miami grocery store back in the 80’s. My dad’s a Christian and gets in everybody’s business, so he decided to stand there and tell everybody that the dude was full of shit. After some yapping they went their separate ways and that was that.

That was like 35 years ago. To this day my dad gets mail from the church of Scientology despite changing addresses and moving to a new state. It’s been a somewhat constant flow of junk mail that began a few weeks after that argument and hasn’t ever stopped. It’s not a big deal to throw out their bullshit mailers, but it’s creepy as fuck that they keep track of random people like that just to harass them.

Anyway, I’d never even heard of Braille or revive or whatever it is until seeing it discussed here and I’ve never seen their product in real life. Are they really that big?

Scientology toys now flying off the shelves of Target! From the Scientologist company that hasn’t said shit about child predators after a 26 year old ex-employee was caught having (alleged) sexual relations with a 14 year old!

Btw, Braille has made so much money off of these toys that they’re now going to start making skate shoes. Scientology shoes!
https://www.licensing.biz/youtube-skateboarding-channel-braille-turns-to-footwear-after-successful-toy-range-debut/
The leading skateboarding YouTube Channel, Braille Skateboarding, is building on the international success of its officially licensed range of toy fingerboards and skate ramps with a leap into the world of footwear. In a partnership brokered by Semaphore Licensing, the skate brand has teamed with R&R Footwear to develop a new range of functional skate shoes.

Braille Skateboarding launched onto the consumer products scene in July this year when it brought its first collection of toy fingerboard and skate ramps to the international market. The range – which also comprised mystery surprise sets – became a hit with retail giants Amazon and Target, as fans ‘went wild for the toys’ inspired by the channel’s popular Skate Everything series.

Skate Everything features a collection of videos that showcase Braille Skateboarding’s founder, Aaron Kyro, creating skateboards from anything other than what you would think to use, such as computer keyboards, ironing boards, electric guitars, and even gummy bears.

The toy range was quickly met with ‘huge demand from skate fans from across the globe’ and soon after retailers and stockists were reportedly placing reorders to meet the elevated consumer demand. According to Semaphore Licensing, this demand was fuelled by the brand’s YouTube Channel and its more than 5.6 million subscribers.

Braille Skateboarding has also secured its first international retailer in Smyths Toys, who has brought the brand to the UK market. Projections currently show that by the end of 2020, close to one million finger boards will have been shipped to retailers.

Following the initial success, Braille is now positioned to expand its licensing efforts into new categories. The company has since partnered with R&R Footwear in a move to develop and roll out a ‘stylish and functional skate shoe’ that would appeal to skaters and non-skaters alike.

Braille Skateboarding now plans to chronicle the development journey of the new shoe in partnership with R&R Footwear as it aims to launch the product to retailers in summer 2021.

“We are ramping up to bring unique products to shelves globally on behalf of Braille Skateboarding,” said Michael Bienstock, founder and CEO, Semaphore Licensing. “We join Aaron in his mission to ensure the entire world knows what a Braille board is.”

I just remembered that my 85 year old grandpa got 'kidnapped' by scientologists around a decade ago. He was born on Guam and knew L Ron Hubbard when he lived there. Scientologists somehow found him, asked to interview him and he left with them and disappeared for over 10 hours one day. He never really talked about what happened on that day. Sketchy shit.

Do you think L. Ron Hubbard himself would appear in these videos if he was still on this landing station? Do you think he'd push mongo?

Too close of a "connection" if you ask me...

Not to mention Andy Schrock’s channel where he plays with legos and toys with his kid. Reminds me of Birdman and Macaulay Culkin‘s parents.

Don't even worry about those kooks. They aren't real skaters. Even though I don't know you, I still got your back even though they banned you for saying that.

He would appear in the background of the videos, grilling hotdogs and brewing Kool-Aide.

Sometimes I think about moving to LA and becoming a Scientologist to short cut to being rich and famous. It’s like a life cheat code. I just don’t think I could keep a straight face when someone is explaining Xenu and they seem like the wrong people to piss off.

For the longest time, I thought his name was Elrond Hubbard. Imagine my disappointment to learn that his first name was just L.

Someone needs to make a porn spoof of his life where he is named El Rod Hubbard and he creates a religion about boning or something like that.

That’s exactly why so many people in entertainment get involved. But then you end up making a bunch of live action Chipmunks movies and figuring out it wasn’t worth sacrificing your identity and have to try to break out.

I’m partial to the Norwegian Death Metal series myself.

The LRH series is insane in that it proves that if you’re deranged enough you really can just fake it till you make it, you might just have to have ketchup soup for a little bit in the interim.
