Good job Shaun. Very useful and relevant post if you ask me. A lot of the new riders have dreams of getting sponsored. Don’t freak out at them for asking, it might push away the next Dan Heaton before they even get a chance to show everyone. I think an important thing for me was to get to know other unicyclists and to get my name out there as a decent person. Also doing well in competitions can help too. It hasn’t been a huge factor so far, but I think it will start to be a great way to get exposure when no one has heard of you.
Most of all, just ride hard and ride however you want and hope that others like it.
shaun pretty much nailed all the important parts, but adding to what shaun was saying about advertising that you’re helping somebody, if something breaks on your uni, tell the forums all about it and how it’s so expensive to keep fixing up your uni. then a sponsor would see how “hardcore” your riding is and might sponsor you to show how tough their products are.
dont get in her face, shes a pretty good rider, well depending on what unicycle like people have said try out for them, unless its a KH, which I think it is in your case…So it may be harder, but make a video with your best stuff, and as shaun said make a lot of video’s like Luke C. He made a video a week it seemed, got a ton of reconition so Kris Holm wanted to sponsor him, so show off your best riding, send it to the company, I’d suggest getting their email, then talk to them personally and try to build up a relationship, I personally love these sponsorship threads and reading about what people have to say about being sponsored, girls riding street isnt as developed as the guys because most girls do freestyle. I know you can crankflip i dont know if you can do anything else, but I dont see why you couldnt get a sponsorhship from a company, the key is what company. Hope it helps. Sorry about being all over the place in the post…
