Calling all skaters! We have big and exciting news! SHIT® is looking for new sponsees, and it might be you reading this right now! Come along and let us show you the way through this amazing path you're about to take!
Yeah! You heard right! Have you ever considered making a living of the thing you love the most? We bet that's what a lot of people dream of, well, we are going to give you a chance to join us and show the world your skills and passion for skateboarding! You might feel that getting a sponsorship is a difficult deal, back in the day it was difficult just to get your name out there, today we will show you how SHIT® has been making a revolution in this field and how you can become a part of the SHIT® Team!
Old school skaters had to get someone to record them on a VHS tape and send their stuff to not so clear physical addresses or hand it over to a friend who knew a guy who knew a guy... and then hope that that tape got to the right hands of someone who actually took the time to see it and get in contact with them (RESPECT).
This was just one of many methods avid skateboarders used back in the day to be able to get a sponsorship, now, things have changed completely! you can now record your skateboarding video even using your mobile device! You can upload it to your social media and millions could get to it in a matter of minutes! And who knows, maybe earn you a sponsorship with SHIT®!

Would you be excited to be a part of a serious and renowned team? To not have to worry about gear and see the world while on your skateboard? That is exactly what we need you for, we need YOU to be a part of the SHIT® team, there are a few things you need to keep in mind if you are coming along on this adventure! We are looking for the best skateboarders out there to become a part of the team, but we are also looking to guide you and help you build up your skills. We want you to grow and help you in the process, that said, you don't have to be a pro already, we will make you a pro!
For most sponsors, a skateboarding sponsorship is 40% skills and 60% attitude, keep that in mind, don't be afraid to fall and show us what you got! The most important thing is that we want to know that you LOVE skateboarding and that you have serious passion about this discipline, we want to know if you can see yourself all the way on top with your own signature shoe, skateboard pro model deck and maybe even being a skatable character in a big skateboarding video game drop, all of this while skating for the SHIT® Team!
Last Years Sponsorship Competition
Back in December 2019 we decided that tables had to be turned and dreams had to become true. Last years virtual contest had people all over the world send us their own skateboarding videos for a chance to become a sponsee for SHIT®, we invited our global skateboarding community to be a part of the entire process and the whole community took a vote to decide who was going to be the new sponsee, at the end Aksel Sørum @akseldrop, Sander Gard @sandergard and Jens Anker Hovland @anker.hovland were chosen to become a part of the SHIT® Skateboarding Team! These are all Nordic names, but in this round it doesn't matter where in the world you are from.
These 3 dudes have since then made a big mark on their local skateboarding communities and been having a blast representing us with their sick skills. Aksel has since become the youngest skateboarding in Norway to get his own signature deck at age 13! And this all has been possible due to his commitment to the team and the growth he has had in the team, how about you? You want your own signature deck? Show us what you got!
