Brandan: Who are your sponsors?

Wade: Metric Skateboards, DC Shoes, United Clothing, Antisocial Skate Shop, Gold Wheels, Lucky Bearings, and Roughriders

Brandan: Really?

Wade: Yeah, Tony Ferguson, Mike McDermott, the list goes on. I have an awful lot of people to inspire me.

Brandan: What way do you think you get the best exposure, from like videos and photos or what?
