FLOW RIDER POSITIONS AVAILABLE for 2018 - CANADA ONLY
Here at Vermin Scooters we get asked by a lot of riders to sponsor them. In order for our business to sponsor any rider, we require them to meet certain standards and codes of conduct. If these standards cannot be met or codes of conduct cannot be met, please do not bother asking for sponsorship - it wastes our time and yours. We investigate and follow on social media all potential candidates for a period of time prior to inviting them to ride for us.
Difference between Flow Team and Shop Team - not much! Details are Flow riders get smaller discounts, Less free equipment, Shop Riders are promoted more and are showcased to Scooter Companies for potential sponsorship. Flow sponsorship gives us time to evaluate you prior to moving up to full shop sponsorship.
Our Code of Conduct for Riders is as follows:
1. NO illegal drug use.
2. NO alcohol use by riders under 18.
3. NO depiction or endorsement of drug & alcohol use in social media
4. NO confrontations with citizens or law enforcement.
5. Being polite to all parents and kids at skateparks.

11. NO foul language in public, especially at the skatepark.
