it's not an easy question to answer.

1) get good
2) get noticed
3) get sponsored
4) get pro

Unfortunately it's not that simple.

you could be a professional many ways my personal favorite is when you seduce the owner of said company you want to ride for and take scandalous pictures. followed shortly by blackmail.

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.
Bike check?

Its not that difficult if you live by a place willing to sponsor.
For instance i live by albes and ive seen people who sucked 3-4 years ago, about to be sponsored on albes Am team within a year.
