Become awesome at skateboarding
Why would a company invest money in you? You have to be really good, or have a special style that can attract peoples attention.
In the end, they're not a charity, you're promoting their company by getting noticed by as many people as possible.
If you're really good at skateboarding, get as many people to see you skate. Enter every skate competition you can (and win).
Another great way to get noticed is by making a skate video and send it to all the skateboard companies and shops you know. Note that the big companies receive a lot of videos and it will be difficult to get their attention.
Frequently visit your local skateshop and have a nice chat with the people who work there.
If you ask to get sponsored after a while, they will already know (and hopefully like you) and be more inclined to accept your offer.
