I started taking photos about five years ago but my first video I ever filmed and edited was with Wil White in early 2012. Since then I have worked with Wil on a total of three edits and just as I have progressed in filming and editing, he has progressed in his riding. It’s been a lot of fun watching him ride and I’ve learned a lot over the past two years. I’m looking forward to watching Wil continue to step up his game in the future, he is only 19 years old and I know if he really devoted himself to MTB then he could be a legend just like one of his idols, Bender. At the age of 26 Cam Zink just pulled the biggest backflip in the history of mountain biking, give Wil a few years and let’s see what he can really do!

1 foot Tabes...Filming for his 3rd edition
Wil White

I've also been able to work with my good friend and up-and-coming heli operator Nicholas Moffett over at Ghost Heli and he has been dialed with his settings and equipment, allowing us to shoot dynamic aerial shots. It's been awesome to see the heli become more stable and the aerial shots add so much to the edits.

In my opinion Wil has a ton of talent/skill and I always wonder why he doesn't get the newest gear on the market or sponsors fully backing him. He has showed me what decent equipment can do for you, but I always wonder if he could be pushing it to the next level if he had more support.

Keep an eye out for Wil White in 2014. If you thought he was going big before then get stoked for what is still to come! Special thanks to Wil and his friends for creating a spot where we could come film and enjoy Wil's skills.

 So cool to see an edit with this dude, there is not enough footage of this guy riding! I don't know if you might see this Wil but if you are looking for more places to ride in so-cal hit me up we have some trails on private land that we have permission to build out in the desert that are taking shape real quick and it would be an honor to have you come out when they are closer to being finished.

 Wow, he seems really down to earth and likeable. I hope you pick up a solid sponsor in 2014 Wil. Keep keepin it real!
  • + 39
 This video only makes the mystery of how some people get full sponsorships even more baffling. Seriously, there are kids that race Cat 3 state-level events with better deals than what Wil pointed out in this edit. The bike industry is quickly becoming the skiing industry... if it's not there already. Being good is a prerequisite while knowing the right people seems to be the deciding factor in most cases. This is all on top of it being almost impossible to make a career off of freeriding. That opportunity died out a while ago and those that continue to do it are part of a very rare bunch. It sucks.

 Indeed, I remember a few years ago some guys on pb were saying he was bullshitting and he couldn't ride, guess they shut up now.

 I posted this down below, but I'll post it again here so it's higher up, that way everyone will read it. I truly appreciate each and everyone of you, you guys are the support I need to get out there and keep building and riding. OK, Wil White here, first of all, thank you for every one who actually knows what they're talking about and being really supportive. Let me clear up a few things. 1. I'm not a downhill racer, nor do I claim to be, and I don't want sponsors through racing, it's not my thing. I did it for a while but got bored with it real quick. 2. I absolutely agree that one of the biggest issues I have is limited event coverage. I don't have the money to make it to any European events, I barely have enough to travel to the ones I do manage to make. I would absolutely LOVE to go out on the FMB tour and prove I can compete with everyone else, but I can't be dropping 1-5 grand every time an event pops up. I've also been going to college full time for the past 3 years, which hinders everything a bit as well. 3. I don't live in Kamloops, Whistler, Utah, nor am I a rich boy with a foam pit to practice in. I learned every single one of my tricks to dirt, by building jumps at this field in the video. My biggest personal struggle is never having a secure riding spot. Every where we had is now closed, bulldozed and fenced, like I said in the video. I build in secret for months, usually by myself, just to have something to ride for a month before it's gone. Hopefully that'll give everyone a little insight to go off of, and not just spoutng random things. Thank you everyone for your support, the fans are the only thing that keep me on the bike and going for it.

 Well said Wil! You are one of my favourite riders to watch at rampage every year! Your old school style is awesome and rarely seen nowadays, keep up the good work and good luck for the future!!

 Good luck mate, it will be hard without results but you do have the talent. I'm sure you realise there are many haters on any forum including PB, may just be jealousy, I don't know but just keep going. At the risk of sounding like your dad you do need a new saddle though! Hehe.

 we will sponsor you, we do replacemnt brake parts, like rotors , pads etc.. ryan - stop components

 Wil has so much talent and for the past 2 years seeing him ride Rampage the way he does proves it. He's definitely one of the most underrated riders out there. Here's hoping 2014 will change a lot of things for him.

 It's complete bull that this guy isn't sponsored. Just because he can't dial in a new dh bike at every world cup event doesn't mean that he shouldn't have companies throwing money at him. He obviously has the talent and the passion to send it big at events like rampage...hell, the only reason I knew karpiel was still alive and kicking is because of this guy right here.
  • + 8
 karpiel is alive and kicking? lol
  • + 13
 lol wil white at world cups. i think you mean fmb tour events.
  • + 9
 I mean world cups. As in he isn't gonna be an atherton running world cups and dialing in the Fury. I'm well aware that he isn't racing world cups. I was a little ambiguous there, sorry.
  • - 8
 regardless, it is extremely hard to get sponsorship without results. coastal crew did it with awesome cinematography and a lot of work on videos. wil white will never get a big deal simply because he doesn't have results. until he gets faster and actually starts winning RACES not just being that one guy at Rampage. sure he gets tons of credit for sending those jumps at Rampage but hitting big jumps will very rarely get a full sponsorship. race results are key to sponsors
  • + 7
 Sure, I get that. But as he said in the video...what, like 30% off? Joeys get that without even racing...I agree that White needs to get out there in terms of competitions and results, but still. He's a great rider who does send it big (albeit a few times a year, you're totally right about that) who deserves more imo.
  • + 8
 valid point. only problem is i can think of tons of great riders who send it big and deserve more than they have.
  • + 2
 Absolutely. Tons of freeride and slopestyle talent out there that doesn't get recognition - on the other hand, actually racing dh, if you have talent...win a few races with a big enough margin and you're set.
  • + 3
 precisely my point. its unfortunate but thats the way it is.
  • + 11
 yeah but, he placed way above other sponsored riders. NBC aired the Rampage this year, and some bike companies could have had their products all over Wil's bike on National TV. Missed opportunity there if you ask me.
  • + 4
 I think that if they do get a big mountain tour separate from the fmb, Guys like Wil White will start getting sponsors. I know there was talk about it at some point.
  • + 5
 I don't think he necessarily should have results. He's obviously a talented rider who has the ability to help push the sport. He has a likeable personality, and we all KNOW who he is. He's a recognizable name in the sport. With a little company support behind him, his media presence would grow, in turn doing him and the company good. At least he's getting product support, but travel and entry fees are not cheap....
  • + 6
 Companies should help riders out even when they don't have prestigious results; just because they can't afford to make it to contests, let alone rack in FMB points, doesn't mean they aren't doing a good job as a rider.
  • + 3
 For sure. The bottom line for a rider is to promote a company, product, image and brand to the best of their ability. If it were results only, then only podium competitors would have sponsors.
  • + 3
 I think wil should be taking the guy who friggen dropped out of rampage and then quit fmb in generals sponsors any day of the week you say your done riding then hey your done now give will every single op that they gave that guy (i can't remember his name he was Russian tho) to wil, obviously wils light burns much brighter and he's one of the much sharper knives im the knive drawer so somebody give the poor kid a friggen hand!!! Give him some sponsors and new bikes get him more exposure please he deserves it!!

 All those company's pick up wil now!!! He's obviously got a future in the sport!!
  • + 4
 The guy who "dropped out" of Rampage was Kirill 'Benderoni' Churbanov. He dropped out for a justified reason, the line he had worked on for such a long time didn't pan out (he had an open loop that he even tried a few times!), and he wasn't willing to hurt himself riding some other persons line completely blind. He also has nearly no sponsors, just small scale support from DMR, Manitou, and a local shop. He is only even remotely recognized because of his ability to send it on HUGE hits with and SS bike. Him and Wil both deserve more credit than they get, hell, Benderoni is about the only guy getting anything in Russia any exposure.
  • + 1
 Well brenderoni actually said he doesn't want to ride pro any more he said hes done and asked that no one send him letters asking him to come back and that he needed time to think about his leaving the sport, and how he might never pick up a bike again..... That being said those small sponsors need to grab wil..... Out with the old in with the new!

 Too right, its so refreshing to be part of a sport where most of the true rippers are actual decent blokes and gals. Craziness that he isn't sponsored! That has to be fixed!
  • + 2
 Not sure. Unless you win races all the time you depend on image as well and him being a humble, down to earth guy might actually work against him as he doesn't have the image that appeals to 16 year olds. Personally, I like this kid way more then most of these Monster drinking, New Era hatted, bro saying goons that are a bit too common in DH these days.

 It's amazing that no major sponsors have picked this guy up.

 you need results for sponsors.

 he beat half of the big name guys at rampage...twice. thats pretty good results.
  • + 1
 true. problem is that Rampage is wil whites only event of the year. all the other guys hit every fmb tour stop of the year (excluding the dhers like atherton who race the world cups). beating half the guys at rampage once a year is not good enough. sorry wil
  • + 3
 why so much hate on wil? hes a rad dude who can seriously throw down on a bike whether its the trails, dirt jumps or gnarly shit. The guy is good and deserves some big sponsors. stop sippin on that haterade man. i think someone is just a little jelly theyre not wil.

 haha i never personally attacked wil. he's a great guy and an awesome rider. all i said is he doesn't have results. which he doesn't. I'm not jealous of wil at all. i was a half-second off his time at sea otter. proof?http://www.seaotterclassic.com/pdf/results/2013/CAT1downhill.pdf

 results are results

 at sea otter....get some results from a real race up then start comparing your self to will. Bottom line is will deserves a good ride and some good sponsors. and you gotta stop hatin man he shreds and can throw down...
  • - 5
 lol im not hating dude. I'm simply stating he doesn't have results. take wils dick out ur ass. sure sea otter is a weak dh race but i don't see ur name on that sheet at all. and i sure as hell can compare myself to someone who is a half-second faster than me.
  • + 7
 I dont brag about a sea otter result....wills a local rider and ive grown up racing with the guy im just simply saying he deserves a ride. Ok cool you could pedal just as fast as will at a stupid race?? You're a spode man.
  • + 2
 hahaha i respect defending your friend man i really do. unfortunately us arguing isn't going to get him a sponsorship. results are. oh and I'm not bragging about my sea otter result. who would brag about 19th place at sea otter? i used it as a way to prove that I'm in no way jealous of him. I'm jealous of riders with full time sponsorships.
  • + 17
 What have these guys won recently: Aggy, Gully, Kenny Smith, Doerfling?

Results are not the end-all be-all of rider support. Personality, talent, presence and passion. A rider or group that continually ups their game in some fashion, and can generate a media presence can get sponsored without results. Wil doesn't hit the whole FMB tour because (I'm guessing) he can't afford the expense. You can't drop school and job without some sort of outside support.

Sorry, I believe media presence trumps results, unless you are completely dominating the scene,and only a very few of the supported athletes are in that position. With a little work, Wil can get a much wider media presence. Hell, we all know who he is... just need to spread the words and pictures a bit.
  • + 2
 Hate to break it to you but results mean nothing.
  • + 3
 Ummm false I've seen results mean the world EXAMPLE A: i can rep a company and get you on board with a product just by a quick 2 or 3min conversation face to face but i didn't put up proper results this season since it was my first season racing and thats exactly why Easton didnt choose me as a rider for them this year after they in fact came to me looking for my race resume.... If my results had been there the sponsorship would be here so..... I hate to break it to ya but RESULTS MATTER guys.... And you know what else.... Time matters, and hrs gotta make sure he puts in the time for this.... Maybe he isnt putting enough practice time in or something.. Idk but there's a reason for everything, everything happens for a reason y'all..... Good luck will be coming his was before we know it!!! If your reading this wil we are all rooting for ya, best of luck this upcoming year stay healthy buddy!!
  • + 8
 Your argument about results are everything is completely false in wil's case. If getting first place got you sponsors then very few people would be sponsored. The key to sponsorship for him is a combination between media, product developement, being a good person, and then finally contest results. People like Dylan sherrard and Matt hunter aren't known for results, but look how far their media presence and great personalities have taken them.
  • + 1
 Wil White must have been working really hard for the sponsors this year at Rampage with his fashion statement. I had to ask my American cousin if tucking a bandana into one of your back jean pockets like Snoop Dogg is a gang sign.

I hope this article can solve your bickering dudes...

Anyway. Even though he does few (1?) contests or viedos, I'm pretty sure everybody on this page agree that riding rampage finals is HUGE f*ckING DEAL and silly local DH teams get better support with less exposure and results.

 Wil, I just read every post. Take it from a 41 year old marketing guy who has been riding and racing two wheels since the 80's. Run with this postive traction and build a Wil White sponser me site by donation. List those people on your site with their own personal statement and pledge amount (just thinking out loud). Move to the big show and learn how to win everything or make those hurt trying to get on the podium (every day). We are all sick of the bike companies for wheels size changes etc., but being the best and private would inspire alot of us. Furthermore, do it on 25 1/3 wheel size and make us all laugh out loud. Smile, hold out, stay private and watch the Wil White fund grow. You need to have people around you connect you to those who can help. Brand momentum and being known for something specific is the key. The Atherton family understands this. Good luck and enjoyed the film. One more thing, when they say go. tear the lid off it and hand them all their ass (smile).

 I think this is one of the best comments, you definitely get it, and understand what I'm going for. But I don't deserve to take donations from any of you guys, I love the suggestion/idea though. Thanks for the support man, I appreciate it.

 Thanks buddy, Keep repping the old gear! I love my bike, and it's people like you who show that you don't have to have the brightest TLD kit with the newest demo to be a good rider. Ride for the love of the sport, not the love of the newest equipment. Props for keeping it real buddy!

 Wil, I think you're rad!! I love your presence at Rampage and the attitude you keep even when it seems like the judges aren't giving you the scores you deserve and you get screwed on riding order. Screw racing though. You don't need results, you need a plan to film, someone to shoot and edit you and a story for each edit. Thats all you need. Polish it up with some clever writing in your proposal and you will get what you need. EVERYONE knows who you are, just show them what they get out of the deal EXPOSURE=)

 super rad dude. a pleasure seeing you ride at Rampage the last 2 years man. make more videos... there's plenty of big mountain riders that are sponsored simply from an internet presence that don't win anything (i can't recall the last thing that Aggy, Gully, Kenny Smith, Doerfling, Lacondeguy, etc... won), but ride awesome. those names alone... i know that anything and everything those dudes put on video will be sick as shit, and they have good personalities to go with the amazing riding. any of their videos that pop up on pinkbike's news feed, is then the talk of the entire rest of the day amongst my group of friends. their name gets out there, their riding is visually spectacular and creates a buzz, that's all you need to keep your name on people's tongues. doesn't have to be all about winning something (although it doesn't hurt). just keep at it, it'll come to you.

 Cool guy, rad rider, but he needs to enter more events and move to a place where he can get more riding in and be in the spotlight. You cant just get free stuff for being a badass, you have to be out there promoting the product at events or big edits. Hope he does one of the above soon.

 Don't worry bout the sponsorships. get a shit job to pay for transportation and entry fees keep competing and making videos and the sponsorships will take care of its self.... but for real at least go to school part time 1 or 2 classes. If you got a good job buying gear and going sweet places to ride isn't a problem anymore

 You obviously love riding and work hard, but you do have some sponsors. There are many riders at my local jumps (Porc) who can do all the tricks you are doing, and most of them don't expect or have sponsors - they just keep riding.
"Nobody seems like they want to help me out" sounds a little expectant, not what big sponsors are after - be careful what you say!

If you are really serious about getting sponsored and going pro, you have to accept that you need to pack it all up and go for it - save up a bit, stop or finish college and move to somewhere you can access contests/hone your skiils - Whistler or Winterpark or one of the big resorts is a good start - you're lucky enough to not need a visa being in North America.

From there you can work enough hours to pay your way and ride all day (get evening or night work). This is the tried and tested way for so many up and comers.

Good riding video - Best of luck to you Wil.

 Will I think first you rip...You do something we all love to do, ride a bike. I feel you when you talk about not being able to get to all the contests. For me it is the trails. I am 43 and you inspired me to crush it harder. Comeing from 25 years of sk8brding it was easy to cross over. I am way off point, I say just keep pushing it and stay postive. You have that down pat , the positive..Keep it upright and hope you had a great x-mas...Oh and one more thing, I posted about you a year ago and told everybody to watch for you and here you are now...PB main thread...You are the man...
