No one can really say you will/wont be but the level of riding these days, even in younger kids (I say that because I'm 34) is ridiculous. As killz said get a good education. Even if you don't go pro you'll be able to get a better job that will pay for more riding. Having motivation is awesome, just don't let it get in the way of having fun snowboarding.
