you always hear about skaters getting free stuff, and i never really heard of bikers getting the same thing. Thoughts?

Skaters get flowed more ofTen for sure. An entire board is half the price of one mid range frame. And then parts are another 500-800 dollars.

But there's lots of pros.

Look at any team or flow rider in BMX. They are all getting hooked up. PROS get free pretty much everything from the companies they ride for, and sometimes they get hooked up outside of their sponsors too, AND a paycheck.

Flow team dudes typically get setups from sponsors, and maybe some travel coverage. MAYBE depending on the brand a more entry level paycheck for the bigger flow team dudes.

Plus contest winnings, and many other things they may do for their sponsors. Some dudes work in warehouses, design stuff, answer emails and do other tasks. I recall seeing something with Aaron Ross putting stickers on frames when he was on FBM for a bit. Not sure if he was just helping while he was around there or what though.

Most Pro skater's get sponsored by Like big companies like RedBull , Monster , Element , Diamond Supp etc...

but i dont think pro Bmx'ers pay for any parts
they might also get payed from their sponsors sure

but skateboarding currently has a larger community , so it gets more support from bigger companies
