Default Sponsor Me

First lemme start off by saying this isn't a thread so I can get sponsored...its just pretty much comparing my last year's sponsor-me video to my season edit from this year. Just wanted to see is everyone was happy with my part from this year seeing as I spent a little more time filming this year.

Last year's:
Max Lyons Snowboard Sponsor Me 2010-2011 - YouTube

This year's:
Max Lyons 2011-2012 Snowboarding - YouTube




I would like to thank my sponsors Invasion Boardshop, Planet Earth Clothing, MSA, and Maple Apparel

I'm not into competitions and what-not nor at this level of my own riding.

I can see the next level in your riding. Your upper body is much more quiet, your tricks are locked in better, your balance seems to have improved.
For me this was good to watch to help me in my progression of my park riding.
As usual I wish our park was 1/2 as good as what I see in many of these videos.

thanks man, actually filming more than 3 days helps a lot and archiving footage over the year so you know what tricks you need to get.

super quick bump...also need advice.

over the next week or so i'm going to be burning dvd's with my edit and results, just wondering how i should go about sending them to companies..what i'm thinking is companies i want to get sponsored by first, then wait a week, see if they answer me, continue, etc.

also anything any of you guys see wrong/not flowy in the edit? certain tricks that didn't fit, this part sucked, song sucked, anything like that? i suppose a general public opinion is better than my own so i just wanted to see what everyone thought..and as always thanks for watching and critiquing

It is just as much about the politics and social interaction as it is about great riding. I think your riding looks solid do I am not dissing you there. I just think that you will be wasting a lot of time, energy and money with the shotgun approach of sending your videos to companies who don't know you personally.

Every sponsored rider I know started very small at the local level with skate and snowboard shops, competed in every event at the local hill and very slowly worked their way up. Personal contact with reps and industry people is HUGE. without that, I don`t think it matters how great of a rider you are, you will not get noticed.

Not trying to be a downer dude, just passing on my two bits based on what I have seen being in the industry and I hate to see you waste time, energy and money and get really discouraged because you are not getting the results you hope for. Concentrate locally first!
I am sponsored by a local shop and have contacted a few companies through that but some of the east coast reps through certain companies aren't very cooperative and some didn't respond back at all to either me or my shop. I'm trying to get the book of reps for companies from my coach but he's in Florida or Carolina or something right now so thats not too helpful...pretty much the only reason that I brought it up anyway was because looking at the thirtytwo website there is a link for sponsor-me stuff, which tells people to send their videos in to them (maybe at that point they contact the rep closest to the person to get in contact with them or something). I totally agree though, locally is the way to go and I've been slowly working on that throughout the season.

oh absolutely! i love the sport...just seeing if im good enough to get sponsored though. obviously nothing major at this point and most likely if i do get sponsored it'll just be flow stuff but hey, gotta start somewhere
