depends on the shop, huge warehouse type of shop thats all about snowboarding, or a lil sports store that deals with a lot of different sports other than snowboarding?

lol, umm you better be pullin off gnarly ass shit..typically if your asking the question your not good enough..i would say at minimum for a local shop you have to be doing front and back 7's, and look good while doing front/back boardslides, front lips, butters etc.

for the love of god, don't send in amateur video tapes of yourself riding with your buddy holding your moms Handycam. They only are watched to be laughed at. Sponsor Me tapes are the classic definition of "Doing it Wrong"

Just go out and win contests and get to know people in the community. If they like you and you are winning shit they will throw you some free gear but don't expect it to happen over night or even happen at all.

USASA contests. Volcom PB & J. Trans Ams. Forum Youngbloods.

Go to each one, watch what the winners are doing, do it better, win them all, and move out west. Then you MIGHT have a chance.

Case in point: Lucas Magoon, Chas Guldimond, Pat Moore.

well keep workin man, make a tape, have someone who knows what they are doing edit the shit out of it so it looks good and give it to your local shop. it wont hurt tryin if they say no then shit try again. i would think shops are a little tighter on their sponsor dollars with the economy though.

I can't believe this is a serious thread. If you think 7's are getting you sponsored you're delusional.
