You make the world tour, have 11 stops around the world and some cash to be made…. so, did ya ever wonder how much it would cost to travel the world tour?
Stop 1 – Gold Coast for the Quikkie Pro – roundtrip airfare, food, lodging, transportation: $2000
Stop 2 – LAX to Melbourne for the Rip Curl Pro: $1500
Stop 3 – Rio, Brazil for the Billabong Pro: $1500
Stop 11 – Hawaii for Pipe Masters $1500
Total cost – $27,000
It’s safe to say, no one is stressed about the costs of travel. Just $27000 to compete…. considering these guys make no less than $77K per year for just showing up and placing =25th, it’s no brainer… they can place last in every event and still show a net profit of 50K …. throw in their endorsements, if any, and they’re all making over a hundred K no matter how bad they surf….
