curlyq1638: lol u wouldnt get it but i just like the style of boarding more than i do skiing
KeInEnUdEl13: yes i wouldnt get it?
curlyq1638: plus wen ure dad owns a huge boarding company, its hard to be a pro skiier
KeInEnUdEl13: so prove it
KeInEnUdEl13: if ur this cool pro skier, prove it
curlyq1638: i'll send u some pics tomorrow or when i next talk to u
KeInEnUdEl13: haha ok

KeInEnUdEl13: armada, anon, helly hanson, enom
curlyq1638: not bad
KeInEnUdEl13: and i get some endorsments for wearing salomon boots and giro helmet, not a full sponsorship, they just help me enter comps and stuff
curlyq1638: how long have u been sponsored 4?
