wrathfuldeity Un oh, not to dash your dreams...but you need others to help and filming is not easy. Need friends that have a good camera, with some good shooting skills, a good editing skills, good snow, weather and light....etc. There are a ton of kids that have skillz that say they want to get some good edits....but when a good day hits they are way too antsy to stand around waiting for the shot to get set up. Just realize for 1 minute of good vid there are probably many many hours of film, labor and expense. Just noting that you need others to help your E-penis stroking. At least around my parts you couldn't pay anybody enough $ to give up poo lines inorder for you to be p-star.

btw we are talking to this kid

uh oh a virus 2

What size board should I get?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey guys, the title says it all. What size board should I get?

height - 5'5
weight - 145
shoe size - 10
age - 14
style - park

I had pretty much the same specs last season, I was about 135 and 5'3. I was riding on a 142cm board. Even then, that board felt a little bit too small. Especially when I would do a board slide and my nose and tail would be touching the snow -_- My mom is bent on the fact that park = small board and refuses to believe that I need anything bigger than a 142cm. Lol my dad is on my side, but my mom is like "NO. YOUR WRONG." So anyway, who is right? Should I stick with my 142cm this season, or should I get something bigger? I ONLY ride park.

blondieyo If you want to get free shit, become a regular at your local shop. Some rep from burton isn't going to see you online and think 'he's our next big star'. You get sponsored not only because you're really good at snowboarding but because you love snowboarding and would be happy doing it for nothing. Spend less time editing videos of your sick grab and spend more time on the mountain actually doing it.

CheeseForSteeze "Just trying" to get a sponsor isn't going to get you a sponsor. People who adventured around the world on their own dime, taken and written epic accounts along with high quality edits aren't getting sponsored so why would a half-baked first attempt at a park edit, of which there are thousands out there, be enough to get sponsors? The majority of edits on youtube aren't sponsor-me edits, they're just out there because people have an amateur love of snowboarding and cinematography and will spend their own money and own time doing something they never even intend to get anything back out of, let alone a contract. Some of these edits are pretty damned good no matter what scale you judge it on, too.

Look, the people riding pro for teams spent their whole lives trying to get sponsored. They sacrificed everything working a shit night job and riding every hour they could hoping to develop enough skill and style to commoditize their snowboarding into something a company can use to sell snowboard related shit. Believe me, if you were on the cusp of getting a fat contract, not having a section on SBF.com to stick your edit under wouldn't be stopping you. So what would be the point?

Sponsored or not I love the sport and always will, just why not try for a sponsor? I enjoy it, so why not pursue it a little bit? Now believe me, i'm not stupid. Unless I start throwing down double corks I'm probably not going pro, so my grades are all still A's, but I have fun with it so why not try to get sponsored? It's like football, JV or Varsity I still love and play football, but Varsity is just better.
