The Big Break opportunity will let me: to do something I love to do that I have not been able to do for awhile: travel. Traveling and meeting new friends and seeing new places I never would have been able to see otherwise is my absolute favorite part of rollerblading. Having the opportunity to go to new places to film, skate, experience, and represent a company you ride for is a dream come true for any blader.

The Big Break opportunity will let me: the chance to skate outside of Iowa, on different elements, as well as more often. A sponsorship would be a great way to push myself and the sport while advertising the brand and industry to people who wouldn’t have otherwise seen or heard about it. I’ve always taken pride in being a rollerblader and want nothing more than to be a walking advertisement for it.

The Big Break opportunity will let me: live a dream come true. I love networking within rollerblading — knowing and meeting new people, everything that would encompass being a sponsored rider. It would definitely push me to blade better than I ever have, as every year even as I get older I learn and progress more and more. This would just add a ton of flame to the fire and it would push me harder than I ever have bladed before.

The Big Break opportunity will let me: to represent a great company while doing what I most love to do — blade. It will also allow me to travel out of my city to places I’ve never skated, opening my mind to do things I’m not used to nor familiar with. It will boost my standards 10 times higher then they currently are in film quality, and motivate me to try much more difficult tricks to represent for the Kaltik Frame Brand.

The Big Break opportunity will let me: blade more, because it is an incentive that pushes me to be more in this sport. Though I’ve practiced with love, I’d do it more professionally representing a brand.

The Big Break opportunity will let me: road trip through California, Nevada, and Colorado with all of my camera equipment so that I can document some badass rollerblading (probably even twice). Aside from the hardware hook up, the sponsorship would give me the opportunity to share my ideas with some rollerblading business minds. I’m fuming with them. Some one will catch it.

The Big Break opportunity will let me: have the chance to travel the Midwest over the summer, hitting up every street contest possible. As some of you may know this is exactly what I did last summer, attending: Delta City, KY Battle, Windy City Riot, A-town Stomp, A Day in the Zoo, and the James Short Memorial. However, there were a few situations I got myself into that if it weren’t for the prize money I won, I would not of been able to make it back home or pay rent. This Big Break Contest would ease the financial burden of traveling this summer and let me do what I love stress free!

The Big Break opportunity will let me: to expand my skills even further by taking me new places, meeting new people, and by surrounding me in the blading culture. I may not have the best edit or the biggest trick vocabulary but I’m always improving, always taking things a step further. This sponsorship will push me further and hopefully allow for a long, successful blading career.

The Big Break opportunity will let me: be able to ride 8 down on the best frames for a lot longer and to be able to travel to a few competitions in Canada that I have not been able to go to. This is an opportunity to push my blading career in another new way. If I get it, I would like to work with these companies to push and support them, and work with them to help strengthen my community of blading as well. This is a sweet opportunity, and it would be greatly appreciated and a choice these companies will not regret. No matter what the decision, I’m happy for the opportunity and happy for the the person who gets it. You never know what the future holds.

With this opportunity I will confidently promote skating as a fluid motion that is much more than just doing tricks.
