Wheelchair on a skate park? ChairSkater David Lebuser shows his skills!
Even I am not able to stand on my feet anymore it doesn’t disables me to spend my time in a young adaptive action sport. ChairSkating is a sport where you leap onto the ramps of a skate park with your wheelchair. Below is an Open Letter from me.
Most famous athlete is undisputable Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham, who shows his awesome and gigantic jumps on the Megaramp at NitroCircus Live regularly. Meanwhile there aren’t just crazy imitators, no there are more and more serious competitors. At the annually adaptive skate competition, VANS ShoeCity open, in Venice, California, the best athletes of this young sport from all over the world compete against each other. In this year’s competition I placed 5th in overall result and as 3rd best skater on a wheelchair.
Nevertheless I have to fund costly repairs, not to mention the traveling expenses to be at just one event of this kind. I will help to increase the profile of this sport, here and everywhere. I would like to be more active, but to do so requires sponsors and supporters. Anything from a small amount of money to material sponsorships and travel funding would be highly appreciated.
Of course I would do everything I can to show my sponsors and supporters how thankful I am. I would give it back in different forms, like fair appearances, showing the company name or logo in my videos, place them on my chair or helmet or make advertising, plug them.
Maybe you would like to take a look at my YouTube videos. I am glad about every answer and any interests on my activities.
With kind regards
