By Ethan StoneCraig Peterson has been stomping 1440s and quadruple backflips since before you were born, fool. Enough said.
The former aerials and moguls world champion is the president and CEO of Max-Air Productions, an extreme-sports show company operating out of Sandy, Utah. Peterson employs aerialists, freeskiers, and snowboarders to travel around the world, throwing down for crowds on trampolines and huge artificial ramps. And heâ€™s looking for young newschool skiers for this summerâ€™s shows.
The big ticket? Instead of losing in the WSI this year, why not throw down for crowds of screaming Asian women?! Peterson is looking for freeskiers who want to participate in an amusement park show two hours from Hong Kong. The skiers will be performing once each day, jumping from an artificial-surface ramp onto a huge angled airbag. Lodging and transportation will be provided in addition to regular pay. The show will start in February and run for one year.
â€œWe also have many state and country fair shows running nationwide from June through November,â€? Peterson said. â€œWeâ€™re looking for people to work for a couple weeks to a month at a time.â€? Peterson is also looking for experienced skiers to participate in his new â€œTower of Powerâ€? trampoline show touring the country this summer.
â€œItâ€™s an opportunity for people to get paid to playâ€“ to travel the world, and have fun,â€? Peterson said. Iâ€™ve seen his show, and Iâ€™m inclined to agree. If you want to get paid to play on huge aerials trampolines and hit artificial ramps all summer, check out http://www.max-airshows.com to fill out an application, or drop Craig a line at (801) 944-4859.
