You suck and that video is horrible. Zeaches, butt shots, whack spins, no grab spins, backyard rails that look like shit. Sorry man you need to up your game to even be regional these days.

Haha...I wouldn't say you suck. But we've got local kids at WV throwing double corks in Exhibition daily who aren't sponsored. The game is just on another level these days. Not saying it can't be done, but it's going to take quite a bit more than that.

I thought it was pretty good. Not sponsor level, but he could throw stuff down that I couldn't. One thing I would note though, is that you should work on getting everything down perfect. Lots of the spins were missing 15 degrees or looked sloppy.

You don't suck. Move to a ski town like Breckenridge, Mammoth or South Lake Tahoe, get a night job washing dishes or delivering pizza, ride every day, work on your style and amplitude. Good luck.

Yeah man, youve got some skills, but I think youre seriously underestimating what it takes to get sponsored. Maybe you can get a small, local shop to give you discounts, but to play in the big leagues youre gonna need to get waaaaaaaay better...as in practice every day for a few more years and you MIGHT have a shot...and thats if youre lucky.

This.

I'm not going to hate on you, you're a good rider. But being a good rider isn't enough to get real sponsorship. You've got to be REALLY fucking good.

He would get eaten alive here in Breck. Too much sugar coating 10 years ago that might have gotten you a regional sponsorship but unless you're throwing 1080's or hitting gnarly close out rails at 2 in the morning you offer nothing. Snowboarding sponsorship 101 you have to be marketable and that video besides being painful has nothing to offer any potential company. I've gotten grip loads of kids hooked up with various companies and the difference between you and them was they weren't ugly to watch on film.
