I know of a couple people who go to the skate park around here who think they should be rounding up sponsors just cause they learned 360s (270 to tire tap the rest of the 3) out of flyouts

I mean I get it, they're stoked but come on.

Ok... I counted 36 "quotes". LOL.

But, whatever. I really don't care what anyone really does if it's what they want to do & it doesn't hurt anyone. More power to them.

About 37 too many! haha

Yea I generally dont care much about what others are doing. But when it comes to educating younger riders and maybe having a positive impact on them I'm all about it.

No doubt. We've all been there. I mean, shit, I remember asking any "company person" I who would give me a second if they'd sponsor me to race back in the day. I think that is just a natural progression. You see your fav pro's riding & you know they are "being paid to ride" & think "that'd be awesome!" & "I want to do that!". Just like when kids find out people get paid to test & play video games. It's just a lack of education. Not their fault. They are making judgements on what they perceive to be the truth as they know it.

Which reminds me..

I remember back in my young "sponsermee" dayz, I only ever wanted a sponsor because my bike was ass. It wasn't until more recently that I learned some riders actually get paid! Mind blowing.

Deep down we all wish we made money to do what we do anyways. Nothing wrong with dreaming.

In all honesty, I have found that whenever you take something & attach a paycheck to it becomes a much less enjoyable endeavor, sooner or later. It just becomes a job. Not that it isn't possible to do stuff you love for money. It's just that a paycheck usually adds in other obligations that you didn't bargain for. Having to be at events you would rather not take up your time with. competing when you don't feel well or just are in a funk, whatever. It's all stuff a lot of kids don't think about. All they see is the glamour of it all. Sorta like how people think they would love to be famous.... until they get t here & then hate that they have no privacy & are always followed around by paparazzi.

Yea you guys are both right.
I definitely should've talked about how it's okay to dream and having a broken bike sucks.
Lots of missed points, thats for sure.

This video was mainly made for the people who only care about being sponsored and attempts to educate those who ride for the wrong reasons or just dont know the realities of actually being a sponsored bmx rider. Hoping that maybe a few of them would listen and realize that there's more to riding.

That's all true too. That's why you can always quit.

As a street rider of almost 8 years I feel I could handle riding as a job, I'm already conditioned to the lifestyle and know the game fairly well. But it being a job means putting in a lot more effort which means a lot more trial and error. The body can only take that for so long. Nobody can be pro forever.

I'd personally be super hyped just to stay amateur but live in an area with a huge scene and some professionals. Maybe make some cash on the side filming/working for a BMX Company/Distro/Shop. Host jams and events for the local scene. There's a lot more options in BMX than just being a rider.

My views on this are just a little different. Being a sponsored rider to me means that a company is getting behind you and what you do already.
Maybe they want you to do a few things you aren’t already doing, but generally I feel like those who are in a position to represent a company are already doing the things a company might want them to.

Idk if this comes from the fact that my entire life has revolved around BMX since I started riding or just my experiences in riding for the companies I do. Haha Either way, no ones payin my ass to ride. Haha

I’d also like to add that you can host jams and event with no affiliations to companies at all! Those kinds are usually the most fun.
Hand made prizes are the best.
