It boils downtown who you know these days. Riding doesn't mean anywhere near as much as it used to. And riding is meant to be fun, not a way to get rich and famous. If that's what you're looking for then you picked the wrong sport

I'm on the vital legit list!

Everything boils down to who you know now a days. It's hard if not impossible to start up from scratch so much competition it's insane.

but if the sponser had fun rules and guidelines........theyd cut that shit and realize bmx has no rules.........and if you got a paycheck to have a good time........itd be rad..........presenting a sport like bmx to younger kids in a good light doesn't sound like a bad time.........but with good times like little devil,bonedeth, fbm style living that's kind of a contrast

Well there are a few ways to get to the sponsorship life. Start going to places with lots of professionals (i would have to go to Pittsburgh) and get close with a few pros out there start laying down some shit people would wanna see! Have a bit of style to your riding, dont be all that cookie cutter bullshit. Do new things!! Watch Tim Knoll, Erik Elstran, and Tate Roskelley, they are sponsored because they are different! Being really goddamn good will get you somewhere for sure, Stevie Churchill is real real young and shredded harder than most dudes in his developing stages!! He coult flat 720. Try a few flat 900s and learn like flat 360 double whips. Thats one way, one of the more difficult ones too. haha Starting to go WIN competitions is one way. Most parks i know have competitions do a lot of park junk. Not really street, which sucks for me. I know they have biggest air on a quarter, and just straight up best tricks! I never competed, but would love to when i feel i were able to win easy. haha Once i learn like some crazy and weird tricks ill probably enter one. Another way is to put out unbelievable edits, like ridiculous everything, not one boring clip. The clips couldnt be the best YOU can do, the world doesnt want to see that, they wanna see the best clips they have ever seen ever. haha good luck with that. Being a cool person and having a positive attitude will help. And the dudes above are right, it does normally help if you are buddies with the guy in charge of that. If you are actually a pretty decent rider (idk if you are or not) start your own company, make t shirts, have an image people wanna be part of. It can be difficult, or easy, depending on who you are. I thank you if you have read my whole thing!!! But honestly, dont ride for being sponsored, its not worth it, do what BMX is made to do, HAVE FUN!! Just try new stuff, dont be all pissed you cant go 360 whip a stair set, just ride, the trick will come as long as you try it. Just enjoy riding and ride as much as possible and the sponsors will come, the style will come, just stick with it bro.

the reason no body double whips flat is because you will NOT be able to get the rotation, im pretty sure no one will ever do a legit double whip flat, maybe into stuff which i think has already been done, and off stuff, but i dont think it will ever been possible to do a flat double whip since you would have to hop a good foot or so higher than you have to go flyout to whip, and since even the pros have to have a couple of foot of air i just dont think it will work.

This is BMX anything is possible. A while ago no one even thought a tailwhip flat was possible, no one thought 540s flat were possible, let alone 720s!! BMX will always progress and get better so its definitely possible. And people still think flat backflips arent possible, i beg to differ, they will be landed pretty soon i imagine!

your pretty much defying gravity to get enough hang time to double whip, with flat 5s you can rip real hard to get the rotation with a double whip you actually need air so you can rotate the second whip. could be wrong but i highly doubt it will ever happen.

Yeah not everything is possible because of physics and to a certain extent the technology, bmx does have its inevitable limitations, well I say bmx but its the riders really I guess so its hard to say what is actually possible that can be done but that's what it's all about. We riders gotta go out there and at least try these things to know for sure.

Bmx is a relatively new thing really in the great scheme of things, so I think there's loads of new things and progression to be made.

Love it.

Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.

I just want to be sponsored by a clothing company (That makes sick shit , no gimpy stuff) and my local bike store. Then I can get what I want at a discounted price , ride whatever I want , and look sick while on my bike. That would be great.

Seriously, a good attitude & work ethic will get you a lot further in this sport than being able to do 720 double tail whips.
There are so many kids these days that are full on trick ferret park rats there are shit loads of kids to choose from!
Also if you ride Street there are so many kids that do loads of grinds, whips, bars & now a lot of them are mixing in the odd Flatland trick. Once again sooooo many kids with a good bag of tricks & style to choose from.
Trails riders, i think it at least seems to me its harder in this day & age to become a sponsored Trails rider because it doesn't get as much coverage as the other two. People are starting to forget dirt jumping, its been dropped from most of the big contests & the guys that just flow through a set of trails & throw down stylish tables & turn downs just aren't marketable for big named brands so they're kinda left out.
Flatland, It takes years of dedication to become good at Flat, But i honestly think you wont be riding Flatland as its such a small genre most people will probably never even attempt to ride it.

Basically, I think you need to be "Freestyle" have a good mixture of tricks & an all round style to get noticed. Also as i said a good attitude don't be a dick towards other riders, help people out with their bikes if they don't know what their doing etc. When it comes to a good work ethic you really need to support your brand, wear their clothes, suggest their parts when people ask for recommendations. Get photos, shoot edits etc etc.

I agree here, Double whips don't seem possible to me.
