i understand that these kids probly seem cool to you Schmuck cuz they are probly like me and look up to you, but lets take a look at the people that they don't look up to and the people that can't help their "careers".
These kids are cocky assholes. they cut lift lines, snake you in the park, and just give off the vibe that they think they're the hottest shit under the sun. try to complement them and they give you the "who the fuck are you" rather than just be polite and say thanks.
So yeah im sure they're really nice and cool to pros and industry reps, but around the "nobodys" they act like egotistical jerks. If i were in charge of Electric I would be embarrassed to have these kids represent my product. The whole point of sponsorship is positive representation of a product, and embracing this kind of attitude is unacceptable. DOPE that electric is promoting up-and-comers, but just want to put it out there that more than just skill should be embraced. Maybe hook up one of those up-and-comers that is giving it their all, and being polite and modest among their peers. (They are out there, and I know more than 1 that are better than these kids, AND not getting ads in freeskier)
