Sometimes I wonder why I'm not sponsored. I mean it was a good edit but I do that kind of stuff on the regs and this was there edit. It just feels dum.

I didn't watch the whole thing cause that song was making my ears bleed, but I can do a lot of that stuff too... Doesn't mean I should be sponsored too just based on that alone. A lot of times it's more who you know, not what you can do.


Also... You're comparing yourself a chill edit, not a DVD section. Just something to keep in mind.

Maybe it wasn't the most bangin' edit ever, but it's up to the company for the sponsorship of their riders.

I still liked the edit apart from the music, though. Chill edits are a nice break from the usual street part.

Hahaha, really? You're comparing yourself to hoder? And dehart? And fathead? I'd put money on it hoder has done stuff bigger than you'd ever think of trying. Dehart is legit the most stylish street rider ever, and does the coolest lines. And fathead was one of the best UK riders 10 years ago, he's sponsored because of his loyalty to the brand and always representing. And how he rides now is a real breath of fresh air compared to most edits out there now.

Being able to do tricks isn't the only reason people get sponsored.

That last part is the most important.

You can be able to do nearly everything on a bike, and if you are a douche canoe, you won't "suddenly be sponsored". Whining on a forum about it stating you "do that kind of stuff on the regs" will get you NOTHING. Seriously, be YOURSELF, and don't compare yourself to pro riders and whine about how they are living the life you feel you are somehow "entitled" to. PUT IN THE WORK TO GET THERE.

You have to be positive, a rad dude to be around, ride well, AND represent brands you like. Then get yourself out there-to jams, contests, make a few edits a year and so on.

If you don't put yourself out there, they won't have a clue who you are.


Also if your only goal is sponsorship, you might want to consider figuring out if riding is even fun for you.

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.

Also has a lot to do with style. Making easy tricks look good is better than hard tricks that look bad.
