The idea for the project came in September 2015, same year that Bruno Taioli completed 40 years of skating. On the occasion, he received an invitation by his shape sponsor "Estrutura de Madeira do Skate" - to produce a commemorative shape due to his special celebration. "I wanted to bring the word of God to skaters and i had the idea of gifting everyone that bought my new shape with a copy of the holy bible", said Bruno at the time.
One of his visits to the Sociedade Biblica Brasileira head office, he bought some copies of the bible, where he was first introduced to the "Affinity of Bibles" project: I had no doubts, i ordered the Skateboard Bibleand just like that i accomplished the dream of producing a bible for skaters".
