B-100Heard a rumor that Faction isn't paying Will Berman anymore or something like that. Does anyone know whats going on with that?
brett_fisherhe was promoting them in the 5 questions. He's too good to just be getting skis.And has movie parts.
danbrownthe content of this post is correct but the point youíre trying to make isnít
brett_fisherAnd has movie parts.
brett_fisherlol ok dog...
BASEDJAHDo you think that all skiers that have movie parts get paid?
brett_fisherSki companys love movies itís great advertisement for them.
Older sprigs for example wasnít competing just doing movie parts that werenít ďthat big ď and getting a decent amount of money for skiing.
berman gets invited to camps every summer too and has filmed for a minute now I hope they kick him a little cash.
Park_Rangersince when do people get into this sport to make money? I don't think that he or anyone else should be surprised that there isn't any money.
BASEDJAHwhat are you trying to say? that he doesn't deserve to get paid?
Park_RangerNah, I guess he deserves to make a little money. He is promoting their brand which I guess in turn leads to more sales? Idk, Ive never bought a pair of skis because of who was on their pro team.
What I'm saying is that when one maks the choice to skip school, grow your hair out, and move to the mountains to booze and chief and send it on a daily basis (incredible lifestyle, don't get me wrong), they should accept that their prospects for earning any kind of income are severely deminsihed.
I'd think free gear and some help traveling to Europe to showcase your skiing ability in top shelf films would be enough for a lot of folks pursuing the mountain lifestyle.
Park.Comes with the territory. Completely agree with everything you said, but I do wish the skill of the pro's was recognized and there was some payment that comes with it. Maybe after global warming stops... who knows
Park_RangerI'm with you man, I wish these dudes got paid more. It would be better for the sport as a whole if that were the case.
However, as you said, it comes with the territory. Moving to the mountains = going broke... that's just the way it's always been and likely how it always will be. That is something that I would hope everyone understands before they dedicate their life to freeskiing.
