One time my mom was like what are you listening to and I was like"elton john"and she was like "relly I didnt think you liked that kind of music" and I was like"featuring Tupac bitch JEA JEA" ---gunitthuggin
if you're that worried about them, don't film or have fun. get down a cork 7 truck and a switch cork 5 and win some small comps. send out a resume with your results. you'll get some discounts and free shit and everyone will love you.
if you need sponsors for currency reasons, your going to have to be rediculously good. Most low level pros, and semi pros work their ass off and get paid almost nothing, and its still hard to get to that part into the industry. If you can't find a sponsor at all, its going to be alot harder to get a sponsor that will pay you money, and money thats worth something. Most skiers on AM teams get paid nothing, unless they win a comp or have a movie segment, and that is if they have a contract with the company. If your looking for sponsors for money, then thats rediuculous. Skiings about fun, and skiers accept sponsors because they want to continue skiing but can't afford having no day job.
holson is right. very very few pro skiers make enough money to pay the bills, and alot of the ones i know don't have many bills because their parents foot alot of the bills. T Hall though? He makes mad cake, but for good reasons: he is the best

everyone i know doesn't get paid. the sponsers just hook you up with gear to help off set the cost of replacing it because good skiers break shit. most gear is designed for weekend warriors not hard core skiers. but if your looking for sponsership just be a solid skier and you'll get hooked up soon enough maybe ski with a better crew and you will progress faster and maybe then get noticed
