Default Sponsorship

Im really stoked. I just board for fun but recently got a sponsor. (gopro ftw!) So I got to thinking and figured some of you guys and gals have to be sponsored. Do you guys enjoy it? I usually enter comps @ bear but never have placed super high.

From my knowledge gopro doesn't really do sponsors. They launched a "sponsorship" contest recently on Facebook for picture entries. Im guessing thats whats going on here but if not huge props. Gopro is on the serious rise in action sports brands. Its not red bull but it sure as hell holds some value as a brand now a days.

How did Red bull become such a big name for action sports? It's an energy drink...
