How A Female World Champion Skateboarder Got A Lucrative Sponsor.
Friday, September 9, 2016
Total RESPECT for this badass girl. Emily Pross is the current World Champion for Women's Downhill Skateboarding and she's going to college at the same time. Watch this interview she did with Joanne Gagis on the "Life and Living" show and learn how she maintains college, racing, and more importantly, how she figured out a way to gain a major sponsor from outside the skateboarding industry to help support her financially.
This is a great lesson for female skaters to look outside of the industry for support, and for companies outside of skateboarding to see the value in sponsoring a female skateboarder.
