    Getting paid to live out your passion everyday isn't "selling out".

    It's called "making it".

    Edit - arrrgh i'm carrying this argument to a new page . . .

    so to try and influence the flow of conversation her'es a little rant. . .

    I got into parkour about the same time i got into writing. I'm interested in vaults and stuff but nearly as much as i'm interested in climbing and jumping. My whole idea getting into graff was to get my name up by hitting heavens, liek that would be ultimate satisfaction for me. But being on the scene just for a few months now and learning the culture I realized i can't put toy shit up in dope spots. but now that my shit is getting better i'm hitting more htings, i can't wait to really have my shit tight tho then i'm gonna climb all over the city and get up using my crazy climbing skills.

    Okay that rant had no point, buthopefully it gives somebody something to fueltheir next post off of.

    i do skate jaded but i dont actuali want to get sponsored i have seen many people around me start to make it big it changes em. They think they have got big and good and dont need to try much anymore. Also im not good enough at skateboarding to get sponsered so dont call me a hipocrite u cunt.

    people do sell out and there is sell outs in everything. Fair enough some people dont they are just getting payed to do their hobby but mostof the time they realise they are getting money for what there doing and just do so much of it to get the money. Like a sell out free runner would just try and do as many adverts in a week say just so he gets the money.

    everyone would want to make money from what they love.

    nah i dont mind that but its wen they get obsessive with money like they do it for a while because its a hobby but after a while they notice they can make a lot of money if they keep doing it more and more. Then the loose the insentive to just do it fora hobby and the insentive turns to the money

    id rather just go skateboarding, its easier to go places and its harder than running and jumping.
