Haha no. I signed a contract for a year. Idk about this facebook contest but thats definetly not how I got it.
Sweet dude, getting someone to back you (pull your socks up) in your passion is really rad. As snowboarding is like an art form, and not a sport, make sure that even when you're competing, that you are doing it for yourself. The spancers come along for your ride. Rep'in product can be fun, teaching people, snowboarders, helping them get in somewhere.
