What makes a wakepark cool?
What makes a wake park cool are the rails that are there. If the rails are unique and original it is much more fun, homemade rails are usually different. It can get a bit boring when all parks are the same.
What makes a trick look cool?
The originality, the style, how legit it is and the difficulty level are the considered factors that make a trick cool. Do what you like, not what others might think is “cool”.
What makes a board cool?
Shape and design are the first two things I look at, its important that your board of choice and your riding style complete each other.
What makes bindings cool?
Looks matter, kind of has to match with board graphic or color way, comfort is really important as well.
What makes a video edit cool?
Videos are a form of art and that is unique. A video is great when while you’re watching it, you want to be the rider, you want to be there doing those exact tricks and feeling what he feels. Music is the most important factor.
What makes a photo cool?
You definitely need a level of talent to be able to capture a good photo. Just like a video, a photo is art, it needs to reflect the moment that is being captured and give a unique perspective.
What’s the most important thing in order to get sponsorship?
I have a feeling that a lot of people don’t grasp the concept of being sponsored entirely. Often the level of riding is not the main criteria, the rider is basically a billboard selling an image and lifestyle. The rider’s look and personality are the most important, it’s all about popularity.
What’s the most important thing in order to progress?
Love what you do or else you will go no where. If you love riding, ride as much as you can without stopping, then you have no other choice than to progress. There is no secret to it, give it your all and never stop trying, even when you keep failing, get back up and keep going.
