Okay I decided I will try to get sponsored by making a video for skateboarding. I actually am just making a video for the fun of it. Do you think I should even send a video to any companies? I know I am no like a pro but I don't suck. I am trying to learn some more tricks, but money problems keep hurting me from skating like getting a new board after it snapped. Here is a list of tricks I have landed. Like always there are probably tricks I forgot, and there all flatland. Do you think I got what it takes??

It won't happen. The only way people get sponsorship is if someone spots you. They won't watch tapes people send them.
#3
i don't know much about pro skating, but i do know that none of the big skate companies will see your video if you don't send it to them. send your tape to everyone you possibly can.

sorry dude, but not very likely.


you need to go bigger, do those over stairs and other obstacles.

Watch out for the lava, and the spikes.

Like what is like a MUST if I make this video. And I can do stairs. I got a 6 stair down a little far from my house. If I could I could do that 8 or 9 stair by a mall, but i never have a chance. By the way I live in Mesa Arizona.

Send a video to your local skateshop. They'll most likely do something then if you were to send it to a major company.

Boneless/varial/fakie/casper etc = UBER fail.

I used to skate myself and my cousin is sponsored by a local shop.

well most people who may sponsor you would want you to be able to vert and parks also since the only way you make money and they make money off of you is if you do competitons.My friend just got sponsored by a few brands as an am(Famous,Blind and a few others i forget) and also by his local shop and he isnt the best skater so there is hope for you.But id say stick to local shops and start practicing in parks more

Like the one dude said, send a video to your local skate shop.
Theyll probably sponser you but you wont get much but youll probably be well known around town if you do.
The good times are killing me.

start with a shop or a small board/wheel/truck company, none of the major ones will sponsor you straight away unless you win competitions and whatnot.
