We get these ďwhy is XYZ pro?Ē threads all the time and itís amazing to me that people donít understand that this is the answer. People still seem to think you gotta skate in the minors or ascend some meritocratic ladder to reach pro status.

Hence why itís just as easy to turn around and ask ďwhy isnít/wasnít ABC pro?Ē If they had chops, paid dues AND werenít a shithead it 100% will have something to do with their marketability/value as a financial asset to the company.

This is a sufficient reason, plus, Aiden is sick, so fuck of.

Who was the other homie with the two clips?
I have always enjoyed aiden's footage. But then people (me) wonder why sean pablo is pro.

Speaking about becoming pro, I wonder if itís just the diversity of skating.

How and why is anyone pro? what is pro?
his tricks look like a cartoon where the character throws a sandwich in the air and it reveals all the contents of said sandwich, but then it lands back on the table like a normal sandwich

Pro is a state of mind, validated by someone else putting your name on a skateboard and selling it.

You mean you don't have to skate for 2-4 years at the collegiate level?!

Love watching him skate. Definitely not everyoneís cup of tea but thatís part of the appeal.

I watch this part regularly. Probably posted it before. Probably will again :

https://youtu.be/HcMWo0BoKjs

dudes been in the game Eleven Years and he is 24.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nVgediQRwe0

id be interested to know more about his story. he has lived all over the place! apparently is he is originally from Pasadena, from what i understand is a pretty rich neighbourhood of LA. maybe his parents were never around much and he just bummed around skateboarding and osmehow managed to do it long enough he got hooked up. or maybe his dad was a military dude or had some job that caused him to move around lots or something.

I wonder what the sequence of events was that led him to 917 and then FA. was he really young when he met some of these guys he still skates with?

seems like he would have been 13 when he put this sponsor me tape out at the very least, maybe evne younger (that is just when Sage posted this to his youtube) he was obviously really good from a young age. i feel like he uses both sides of his brain. he definintely knows what he is doing when he chooses these things to film on his parts. amazing song on his FA part too.

one thing i will say about dancing on thin ice is when you watch that video, you get the vibe that these guys would be doing this exact same shit whether they were sponsored or not. theres millions of kids out there who are talented skateboarders but how many of those parts are forgettable? that FA video I have watched so many times. it is just much more entertaining and hypes you up to skate more. it is the full package.

Lets break it down into hard details;
being a pro for the companies he rides for like Supreme, the relationship is strictly about selling clothes and promiting the brand. there is obviously something about his entire look and persona that is appealing to people on and off the skateboard.
being a pro for FA: the fan base is not concerned with ability level. Do you think most people who bought jason dill or bob puleo board in the past were caring much about hammers and NBD? fuck no. the guys who care about that are consumer of PLan B (the skateboards, and the birth control) and Monster .

so you are off the mark buddy barking up the wrong tree. use your brain. usually there is more to it than whats on the surface level and normally it willl make sense if you just think about it
