In order to become a sponsored snowboarder, a person should hone their skills and submit a video of their snowboarding to a local or international snowboarding company. Compete in snowboarding and get affiliated with a snowboard shop with help from the manager of a snowboard store in this free video on snowboarding gear and equipment.
In this next clip, we're going to go over some tips on how to pursue a professional snowboarding career. First things first, learn how to snowboard. It's very important. Hone your skills... from the park to the pipe, urban assault, big mountain riding, powder riding, back country booters. Once you've honed your skills, it's very important to have a friend with a camera... still or video. It's going to be important to document what you can do to basically submit this to a local snowboarding company, or an international snowboarding company. Once they find out how good you are, it's very important also to compete. Get higher placements, be affiliated with a local snowboard shop, maybe work at a snowboard shop. Get your foot in the door, get your name known, spend as much time on the hill, and don't burn your bridges. To be a professional snowboarder, you do get paid to snowboard. Whether it's a still photo in a magazine, a video part, reaching the podium in a competition, or just out basically promoting a brand. It's very important to have a great attitude. Again, I cannot stress having a great attitude and be honest. Be honest. It's an extremely hard thing to do, but if you put your mind to it, you have a great attitude, and you're out there having fun, people will start noticing you. People will start asking you questions. Where do you ride? Who do you ride for? Which shop should I go to? These are very important things to be known in a community, to be one of the best, to be the best.
