there are many unknown east coast riders, but guess what they're getting the attention now too. look at richie paradise. don't start this east coast i don't get attention bullshit.
enter in competitions around here at Snow or the EC Open at Okemo. If you're as good as you say you are compared to others then you'll do well and then guess what happens...you get more attention from companies, filmers, & photographers.
I can name a bunch of guys that ride at Snow...they're not totally unknown because they enter competitions and tear it up.
and sean petit isn't as good as people are making him out to be? i was at the us open. i saw him throwing various corks with grabs. REAL CORKS. not slightly off axis. i saw him spinning 7's in the pipe a good 8-10 out. give the kid the credit he is due. whining bitches.
