Having a video of yourself is the best way to get yourself in the spotlight. It's all about getting scene in this sport. So many companies out there are willing to sponsor riders of all ages and skill levels, but they've got to see what you got. Pictures and words don't some it up. Back it up with a video, and let me make it for you.
Also, if you just want a video of yourself and a few buddies just for fun, that's normal! Everyone likes seeing themselves. It'll be good now, and even better in ten years to see how fast you thought you were.
Sure you can save a few clips on your cell phone or something, but who wants to watch that? Get something worth saving and watching again and again.
