Take a look at the various scenarios below to determine which one fits you.
Should I be sponsored?
I've got more than the basics down and I'm already ripping up the local scene! My friends all say I've got balls and have good style, but my mom and dad say my grades aren't good enough for them to buy me new gear.
Trust us, even the best were in your shoes at one point in time. You have a long way to go, but at least you're looking in the right direction. Maybe it's time to talk to your local shop and enter some contests. Check our website for the dealer nearest you and ask how you can get involved. In time, you could be next in line to get on RIDE's regional program and then you'll be the envy of all your friends! Hey, your parents may disown you, but at least you'll be sponsored!
Yo, you seen my movies yet?
I've got video and photos to show you, so you can see why I deserve to be on the RIDE Team. I've done well at some contests, have already been working with my local RIDE rep, and I have a shop sponsor. Can I get some extra love?
If this is you, show us what you've got! If you've gotten this far, you must be a ripper, so now the only thing to do is wait for a spot on the team. Send in your footage and remember we want to sponsor you, so be yourself, sell yourself and do your own thing! Trying to be like Mikey or Mathes will get you nowhere. No clones, be different!
I need a TM and a solid sponsor! Look, you know me. I used to be sponsored by that other company, but their heads were stuck up their asses so I wanted to talk to RIDE. I'm going through the sponsorship blues ... please help!
Send us your resume, accomplishments and goals, and we’ll see what we can do. Look, we know most of those other board brands are all talk and will have you running around in circles to where you almost don't even want to ride! F—k that! We don't like running around in circles, either.

Thanks for your interest and remember why you snowboard. Keep it real and have fun!
Does RIDE sponsor College Teams?
We are strong believers in extracurricular activities, but at this time RIDE does not have the resources to support all the College requests that come our way ... and how can we pick and choose??? Your best bet is to make contact with the Regional Rep in your area either through your local RIDE shop or at an event where RIDE is present. Fill him or her in on the benefits of supporting your team or club, and how they can help if interested.
