Easiest companies to get sponsored by
name a few companies who who have low standards for a park rider. the company couldn't give you a pro deal but you guys name a few who would give you free skis. just they haveto make twin tips. like if you could just talk to them and get sponsored. who a really crapy video. give me some feedback
well i highly doubt you will get sponsored by anybody just by the way you're talking. "really low standards in park skiing" you have to be pretty good to get sponsored by any ski company.
seems like dynastar and salomon sponsor a lot of up and comers
Like a virgin on prom night
You can go on the bottom bunk and finish it yourself
When you guys are on those rails, it's like muah
only an idiot would sponsor someone without seeing a video of what they can do. you might as well just not try, unless you have some talent in some other field; racing, big mountain, skier x, moguls, etc...
Seriously, stop skiing and concentrate on your education. Learn how to spell then maybe a company will consider letting you represent them. Why would any company want someone who admits they are "crappy" to ride for them?
We pay our debt sometimes.
Sander, if you have any luck on that let me know. I think I am ready to be a pro now. All I want is to be sponcered so that I can get free stuff. I dont' even care if I like the stuff, just that I can say that I am pro. If you find any companies that don't have the highest standards, I want in.
SANDER you were the same kid who posted about Reps on NS. Just chill out with the sponsorship thing. Obviously you need to improve, so do that before you start all this.
Poppin' them thangs!
I think all of you need to stop trying to get sponsored and just go fucking skiing! The industry is'nt going to survive if everybody is getting hooked up!
JUST GO HAVE FUN!

Ryan Spinks should have some advice for you. His skills are mediocre at best, and he's still been considering himself a "pro" for the past few years.
Ryan, why don't you hook Fesces and this Sander up, let them know what it takes to be a pro?
My mom thinks im cool
if you have cokers skis....ima g-stomp your ass bitch

Shaggy, I have gotten all my sponsors without a video. My current ones and my past ones. Results and a solid resume work well.
Write that down.
talk to b devine he is good at talkin himself up
lets turn this thread into a feschies hating one...pleeeeeease
Fredster, not nice. No need to be mean.
I own you
yeah, results will do it, but this kid is making it sound like he has minimal park skills, which wont get you anything.
i dunno, if i was a company looking to sponsor somebody, i'd want visual proof that they'd be killing it on my skis
You shouldnt really be thinking about sponsorship unless you can 450 off rails 270 onto them slide pretty much every rail there is. and be able to spin 900's with style and switch tricks at least up to 540's prob more. then strat thinking about getting sponsored by a mediocre company. you could get sponsored by a local shop or local hill with less skills but you will need to give them a reason for them to give you free stuff. I used to want to be sponsored..... but you have to come to grips with your self and realize what you will have to do and give up for skiing ang skiing comps. I play hokey so theres no way i'll be sponsored until I leave HS because I just dont have as much time for skiing as I need. just focus on having fun learning new stuff and representing the freeskiing movement. maybe in a few years it could happen but now days there are lots of kids with more then decent park skills and there are only so many sponsorship spots.
'Am I fighting to live or am I living to fight, what am I trying to see if there aint nothin in sight? why am I trying to give, if no one gives me a try? why am
you should probably switch over to snowblading...maybe sponserships are easier to find there
No Fear is wicked easy my cousin got sponsored when he could only do a 360, but they don't really make any ski stuff except for a puffy
pats peak is awesome
heres what you do...it worked for me, McConkey, Kreitler and a host of others...
go to some huge ski racing school...like UC Boulder (my alma) ...drop out after one season and move to Tahoe...work at a local shop waxing skis and renting boots, while ripping every day for two or three seasons...if you have not yet blown a knee or gooten a DWI your doing good...after you have established your self as the sickest core skier on your hill, start hucking the hugest most ridicuouls airs possible, landings dont matter, just get your name out...then if your VERY lucky some rich trust funder hotty will like your style and pay for your skiing as long as you put out
first get video of your switch cork 9, 450 on to reverse 270 off a handrail and a 30 foot cliff drop.
Then send it to ski ccompanies and maby, just maby u wil get sponsored
being sponsered is not about being able to pull certain tricks like 450 off and such its just being able to do what you do with style

I wish I had super powers
Like being able to summon tasty cheese
But would I use it for good or evil?
I just don't know...
First, win contests.
second, film some good tricks.
third, market yourself as someone who knows everyone at their mountain and is friends with lots of people who will take your input about gear and whatever.
Then try to get sponsirred..
It's the batontwirlertwistshakebakecakeholehumperdinkkink rail.
does anyone know any companies such as no fear that will sponsor skiers
actually there is a company called Rainbow Warriors that sponors skiers like you...
go to rainbowwarrior.com for more info
they also sponsor scooter riders and roller bladers
cool site...too bad im not gay
if your good enough, they will come to you, ski for the fun of it and stop worrying about free shit, sure we all want free stuff but face it, if everyone was sponsored, all the skis would suck, there would be no money in these companies for r/d
Ski anywhere you can, anytime you can.
these threads make me laugh, ya let them come to you then the balls in your court.
Probobly the easiest company to get sponsored by is local little shops. I mean there is this company 20 minutes away from here that will give you a basic sponsorship if you can just do basic shit like slide rails fully and spin off big jumps. I've still have yet to take advatage of this because I ski to have fun, plus I'm lazy.

theres this guy sponsored by liberty that isn't good at all
if you have the skills, and compete..someone will spot u..comps like us open/ec open/vt open/ect have reps/team managers all around..they might just tap u on the shoulder to talk, then u might get hooked up
LET THEM COME TO YOU! I PERSONALLY THINK SPONSER VIDEOS ARE REALLY REALLY LAME, IF YOUR GOOD ENOUGH A LOCAL SHOP WILL PICK YOU UP, AND THEY WILL DO ALL THE WORK FOR YOU IF YOU'RE REALLY GOOD ENOUGH. NOBODY WANTS TO SPONSER SOMEONE WHO SUCKS (which by the way you are talking, you are "below par"...maybe im wrong, maybe you kick ass, but dont tell anybody you suck ass if your tring to get sponserd)
They fucking sponsored Zach Davison

that guy can like barely slide a rale
Threads like this make me happy, because while you guys are sitting on NS trying to find the easy way, I'm out clockin' footy with a sick camera day in and day out all season.
I dont know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.
I like poutines i should get a poutine sponsor

dude sander u r trying 2 hard and pluse u say that ur sponsored by icelantic skis, dont try so hard ur not going 2 get sponsored by bagging 2 get sponsored, u have 2 show them ur shit under ur belt, duh
Dude if you want free stuff get in with your local shop, buy all your shit there bring back footy show them and let them in on your part of the scene and they throw stuff at you can cut prices as they become your friends. Its like a bro status or something, eventually you can come in needing something and not have the cash and they'll hook you up. You not gunna get a real sponsorship. And who ever said big mountain is the easiest way is a moron. First thing is the hiking involved is insane. Second you have to actually be in good shape and train, you don't wanted your legs dying halfway down after your 5 mile hike up espacially. And now if you have ever stood at the top of a 60 degree colouir before you whould know its freaky as all hell. I'd be less scared to try a triple backflip then straight those things.
