    Just Curious

    How much do guys make $$ in prize money and sponsorships within the Junior Pro level? Some guy is telling me he just made 100k surfing 3 comps in costa rica, and he's not even on the junior tour. I smell serious BS.

    I'd believe 100,000 colon (aka $216 USD), but not $100k USD

    Junior Pro Level - my guess is a few hundred for placing in a contest.

    It can't be over six figures - just a guess though. Compared to other pro athletes, surfers make next to nothing.

    Hollister pays big bucks for their comp wins (at least according to their tee shirts).
