Scientology Network’s MEET A SCIENTOLOGIST, the weekly series spotlighting the everyday lives of Scientologists from around the world and all walks of life, announces an episode featuring acclaimed skateboarder and YouTube star, Aaron Kyro, on October 9, 2018.
MEET A SCIENTOLOGIST airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network.
Aaron Kyro has combined his dual passions of skateboarding and filmmaking to become an internet sensation. His wildly popular YouTube channel has over 3.5 million subscribers and his videos have amassed over 900 million views. Through his instructional videos and the nonprofit he founded, Aaron is fulfilling his goal to teach others the world over how to ride.
When Aaron Kyro was just six years old sitting in the backseat of a car, he watched three kids ride by on skateboards. He thought it was the coolest thing he’d ever seen. But where he grew up, a small town in Montana, skateboarding was considered a sport for slackers. Still, Aaron would not be deterred, practicing whenever and wherever he could. As a teenager, he convinced his city council to allocate $25,000 to build a skatepark for the community, and each summer he would make skateboarding videos on VHS. To enhance his video-making skills, he attended film school in Vancouver, Canada, for a year before moving to San Francisco to become a professional skateboarder. After a few years of piecing together part-time jobs with small sponsorships, Aaron’s video tutorials catapulted him into YouTube stardom. As someone who was well-versed in L. Ron Hubbard’s Study Technology, he applied its procedures to skateboarding, allowing him to teach others the most difficult of tricks. Aaron went on to start a company, Braille Skateboarding, (the name was inspired by the common skateboarding expression, “I’m feeling it.”) Now he’s riding high, fulfilling his purpose of turning the world on to skateboarding, running a school to teach the tricks of his trade and a nonprofit that gives away skateboards to kids in need.
