Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DO I BECOME A LOADED/ORANGATANG AMBASSADOR?
The goal of the ambassador program is to promote an inclusive skate community while pushing the boundaries of what can be done on a board. To accomplish this we enlist the help of super talented riders who challenge themselves, inspire others and have a good time. We would love to sponsor every person out there and install skateboard-only lanes on every road, but neither of these things can happen. The reality is that it's really hard to get sponsored, but we do encourage you to send us your sponsorship requests and footy through our contact page. We get exactly 65.428 billion sponsorship requests every day, so don't hate us if we drop the ball and don't get back to you. However, we do promise to check out every submission.
Aim high, watch the videos on our channel and practice...a lot. Just as importantly, spread stoke, promote community growth, smile a lot, and whistle off key.

HOW DO I GET MY EVENT SPONSORED?
If you're interested in getting support for an event, please visit http://loadedboards.com/contact-us and select the "Event Sponsorship" option. Be sure to include all of the requested information - we won't be able to consider your event for sponsorship without a working link to your Facebook event page (make sure the event is set to "Public" so we can view it) and a draft of your event poster/flyer image.
If you have any questions or concerns about how to organize an event effectively, feel free to include them in the "Description of event and additional info" box when you submit the contact form and we will be glad to help you out with some tips!
