It's not a matter of who wants to, but who is going to sponsor him? He has ZERO sponsors of any kind and saying he slays is an understatement. insanely consistent on banging out tricks and ohhhh those washboard abs get me goin.
ps - he just got inked up. pm and maybe he'll let you take a peek ;)
Totes man, my new clothing company, 574 collective (were only sponsoring unsponsored athletes at the moment) could totally hook you up. We've only got a few stickers printed out right now but we should have some t-shirts out in the next week.
No amateur is deserving of a sponsorship, necessarily. Kids stress about that aspect of skiing way too hard. If that's your end goal keep working on your shit and it might work out. Measure yourself through the quality of your riding - don't look for validation in free/cheaper gear.
This kid looks like he's smiling all the time and having fun. I guess if I owned a company, I'd rather have someone like him representing my company, than some kid who throws doubles, but comes off as a huge douche to anyone looking at him.
