sleev-les I challenged Shaun White to a 1 on 1 and beat him bad. Burton said they would sponsor me with no restrictions.. I said no because I'm too good for Burton

Seriously OP.. No money, no camera, internetz claimz..... If you truly can do what you are saying and Flow offered you a sponsorship, you are dumb for not taking it. Not sure if I believe your post at this point.

haha tool. Is this really what you told their rep if/when you were offered?

Pretty solid chance you've been blackballed or had your name talked down a bit by the Flow rep to the other local, regional reps because of that.

bieberhole69 I appreciate all of the responses guys. To the guy saying I'm claiming stuff, I completely understand man it's an online site an I have no video to back it up. If you guys give me some time I'll find a local filmer and hit you all with an edit. Thanks again everyone.

Krato Dude here's the thing.

If we rode like we do now but hopped in a time machine 5 or 10 years ago there would be thousands of pros. To be a pro means to ride at a level that the rest of the industry is catching up to. And you have to ride at that ever increasing level with a consistency of pros until you do so for so long that people will want to watch you.

Don't get me wrong, if you aren't bullshitting you've closed most the distance, but if you want to go pro you are going to have to push yourself as hard as you can from here on out every single year.

KellionBane Flow sent me some stickers... I'm sponsored, right?

Seriously, you should have said yes to them... It would have been experience under your belt, and helped you get in with more companies.

I have a decent bag of tricks i guess but im not sponsored. I've been offered by flow but i turned them down because their boards suck. I can throw 900's (most grabs besides like seatbelts, double tails. The weird ones.) I can Double rodeo 10, BS double cork 10 & im working on FS double cork 900's this weekend. My rail game is okay, I can do the normal bs/fs 270's on 270's out. Blunts/boards/nose & tail. I just want to know what it takes for me to reach that level. Anyone have a clue?
Cool you can claim on the Internet. That's like half way to being pro. I mean every good rider just trolls the forums of the Internet talking about tricks they can do and how no one else can.

Video or it didn't happen.

No, just fucking no. Triples are for gymnasts.

Copied that one from the legend sage himself haha. That's where flow offered to sign me on the spot but I turned it down because they're known for their stiff boards. I have gotten offers from little companies if I just post photos but I want something huge. Nitro has contacted me in the past but I don't have a filmer. My parents just can't afford it honestly and I'm only 16.
Claimers going to claim and trolls going to troll.

If you can afford to snowboard you can afford to get a camera or hire someone to film you.

OP: Maybe you should look up a company called DCSnow... I heard they are huge and give huge sponsor deals with totally open contracts to lots of unknown riders.
Lol nice sarcastic post. OP why are you turning down free shit? Not all of flow's boards are super stiff. You could probably find something you like. And getting your name out there is the most important part.
