Sponsor Me Battle: Corey Schara vs Josh Nelson


This week we have a battle entirely from the frozen tundra of America (AKA the Midwest.) Corey Schara hails from the land of cheese, while Josh Nelson resides in America’s high five. Icy conditions and sub-arctic temperatures didn’t keep these two Midwesterners from putting in work last season. Featuring a mix of both park and street in both edits, you decide who deserves the Yobeat swag more. If you think you can do better please submit your edits (or your friends’ edits– just make sure they’re cool with it!)

Corey Schara

Filmed in a few weeks in Wisconsin and Minnesota by Preston Sierra with additional filming by Cory Winkler. “Most all of this was filmed between 6 and 10 am before i had to march my smelly ass into a class full of hot girls.”
Current Sponsors : Ride Snowboards


Josh Nelson

25 years old from Marquette, Mi and “loves to snowboard on anything in front of me.”

Mandatory Disclaimer: Battles are open to any amateur snowboarder – you may already be “sponsored,” as long as you are not getting paid by any brand, you are eligible to compete. You may choose your size, but not style (prizes are given away based on availability.) On the very slim chance “they both suck” option wins, no prize will be given. Videos should be submitted by the rider, not the videographer, however, we are happy to give film credit and list your current sponsors in the description, if provided.

    yup…josh is better. Josh is also 25 and went thru 6 styles in 1 season like an impressionable 14 year old. plus he sounded like a whiney bitch complaining about being up for 20 hours.

    funny how neither dude is from mn and both had shots from minneapolis. both had good edits, but I think the second was a little better/more variety.

    Cory is way sick, smooth as ice, so many tricks up his sleeve. Josh’s vid is damn good, but when you put these guys next to each other Cory will do it bigger every time. deff. the guy you want riding for you.

    Man, they’re both good. I’m giving it to the 25 year old cause clearly he’s doing it for fun if he’s still ripping and not sponsored. Plus, the other kid goes to class with “hot girls,” and is already hooked up…so I can’t feel bad for him.

    well the DC hoodie in the first vid was pretty awful too.. but the monster hoodie takes the cake. I’d vote for the second kid but hes just dying to look like eiki helgason sooo… neither.
