NICK Rozsa, wants a sponsor. He used to have one but was dropped because "he lacked effort."
Whatever the rights and wrongs of that he's certainly putting in the hard yards now -- producing the Homegrown Project -- a 101 of how to get yourself noticed.
Essentially you shoot a short series and bombard the inboxes of the industry, post it in every forum you can find and hope that it gets picked up amongst the noise. Crucially, Nick really can surf, throwing a dizzying array of buttery smooth variations that'll have you sat up all attentive, wondering how the frick doesn't this guy have some help?
He just became a cause célèbre for the Grandmaster of Twitter, Kelly Slater, calling him the "Best sponsorless surfer?" Who despite his usual anodyne postings, knows a thing or two about surfing talent.
We're always up for supporting the underdog, so if there is anyone out there with some budget and a hole on their team you'd do a lot worse than pick this guy up.
