Zero chance that job is 6 fig.... I say $50K tops since they are looking for someone with 2 years If they were asking for someone with 10 years I would say maybe. Also, action sports companies with jobs like this get tons of applicants and they generally find someone who superior skills who takes a big pay cut to work for a "cool action sports company". Ive seen it before.

I would do 50k if there was a wind clause in my contract. Of course I would make up the time at night or weekends. But if its blowing I need to be going..
