CAREERS SKATEBOARDING CAN PROVIDE YOUR CHILD! (Part 1)

Q & A

Skateboarding can offer many different career paths! Here are 3:

  1. Probably the most desired by all young skaters everywhere, a Professional Skateboarder! If your child has the skills then this can be a very real goal. Unfortunately, just being a “professional” doesn’t bring in the big bucks. Most pros skaters use their popularity and media coverage to start their own company! Which brings us to our next skateboarding career move..
  2. Open a Skate Shop/Park! In order for a business to succeed, the owner needs to live the business. So being a skateboarder will increase your business survival rate.
  3. Be a Sales Rep– All your kids favorite skateboarding companies have what’s called sales reps. These people are in charge of opening and maintaining brand relations with skate shops. It’s rare that people without skateboarding in their blood get these positions. So knowing the industry is a must!

    Skateboard Instructor. I’m currently paying $45.00 an hour for my Son’s board lessons. That’s pretty good pay, in my opinion.
