If you work for a living you don't fit my definition of "pro". Does that clear it up?
Have to disagree with this in regards to pro snowboarders.
While some pro snowboarders can let the fame go to their head, a huge majority of the pros I've met are chill, laid back guys.
Most snowboard pros work a second job and are just your average local living at a ski resort. Don't confuse the small minority of pros earning big money with the rest of the pro snowboarder population.
