How to get sponsored - William Royce's First Bustin Video

If you have not noticed, we are little different than most skateboard/longboard companies.  For one, we appreciate an outside-the-box approach to skating, and we like seeing people bending the rules and having fun.  Nine years ago we met William Royce on a sales trip to Florida and he offered to make us a video in consideration for a sponsorship.  As you can imagine, this happens a lot but we had a good feeling about Will.  He had a crazy look in his eye and a freakishly magnetic control of the board.  

When he finally sent us this video a few weeks later, we loved it!  We loved the hard-charging vibe, the music and the snowboard feel of his skating.  We loved that he went off-pavement, something that few had done at the time.  And we loved that he independently produced a short gnarly video with no budget and no direction.  This video epitomizes what is great about Will and is a lesson to anyone wanting to get sponsored by any company.  BE ORIGINAL, SKATE HARD AND MAKE IT F*CKIN HAPPEN ON YOUR OWN.  Do that and you'll be successful in one way or another!
