Many dream of getting sponsored and paid to pursue their passions.
Imagine getting free product, traveling the world and skating some of the best parks or street spots and getting paid to do what you love. Now that is a dream come true!
There is much more to getting sponsored in skateboarding than just going out and ripping the streets. Lets not twist this up, of course you have to be able to skate on a high level, but that is just the start of it all.
In this article, you are going to learn what it really takes to get sponsored by Resurgent Skateboards.
On a daily basis I get emails and messages from skaters of all ages from around the world. Each one with the same request "Can you sponsor me?". There is not a single request that goes unanswered, but the reply is often the same "Yes, but not based off this simple request". Some of these requests come with a sponsor me edit they have thrown together, some do not. Below you will find the steps it takes for Resurgent to decide if you are a good fit for the team.
Key #1 - Making a Unique Sponsor Me Video
Make your first impression count
Video is going to play a major part in our decision. Not only do we want to see your skill set, we also want to see what quality footage we can expect from you. If your filming footage from a phone it is not going to be of the same quality from a DSLR, VX etc.
Filming and Editing a Great Sponsor Me Tape
Skate the streets. We all skate park but when it comes time for a video part the streets are where creativity shines. I see so much dope park footage, if you can do it at the park you can do it in the streets.
Keep your video about 2-4 min long. Only including your best tricks
