Aaron Gomez of sunny SoCal sent in this month’s sponsor me video via the internet. So high-tech! He packed a bunch of tricks into this short vid, and skates all different types of spots, which is good to see. Aaron’s got flip tricks and mannies in his bag, and he hits up some rails, too.
Looking at this from a Team Manger’s perspective, though, Aaron is going to have to step it up a bit in order to be considered for sponsorship. I’ve said this several times before, but you have to compare your footage to the top ams’ parts in the most recent company videos. A front board down an eight-stair rail or a boardslide down a rail that has been killed by a bunch of other dudes isn’t going to catch the eye of a Team Manager.
I did like the pole jam tricks and the hardflip over the gap at the end, though. Aaron is on the right track, and I’m sure within a year from now his skating will progress. Keep shredding, Aaron, and don’t give up the dream! You’ve just earned yourself a free pair of Emerica shoes. Who’s next?
