Aaron Kyro Bio & Age
Aaron was born on September 10, 1983, in Denver, Colorado in the United States of America. But he was raised in Montana which is also where his interest in skateboarding was inflamed while he was in grade 4. This interest continued and got so strong that, after graduating from high school, Kyro decided to devote all his time and life to the sport. Nonetheless, he was plagued by the fact that not too many people shared this interest with him. So, he wanted to popularize skateboarding at any cost.
The next question was how to go about achieving this tall aim of popularizing his beloved sport. To enable him to achieve this aim, Aaron Kyro attended college for a year just so that he could learn how to edit videos. This is because he intended using videos to pitch his intention to would-be sponsors. Eventually, he started making videos of himself, showcasing his skills on a skateboard which he took to anyone who could be interested in it.
Amid several rejections, Aaron eventually caught the attention of a few after a lot of hard work. His efforts paid off, particularly when the authorities of the city of Red Lodge Montana awarded him the sum of $35,000 from donors to enable him to build a skate park for people in his community.

Apparently, at his wits’ end but determined to succeed, Aaron just uploaded one of his skateboarding videos on YouTube.

Many skaters around the world, saw the video and began to contact Aaron in order to collaborate with him in furthering his unique interest in skateboarding.
