TRAINING AND PR.
I will do trips to Paris to meet journalists and the president, which costs 1500 euro.
Then I do a training trip to Tarifa for three weeks and costs me only the travel expenses because I have friends where I can stay. That costs around 1000 euro. I also spend one month in Maui which costs around 3000 euro.
I will also go to Namibia this year and the total cost including registration, renting a van, accommodation, flights and excess baggage, fins and boards will be around 15,000 euros. I will also compete in other national events during the year but this isn’t fixed right now, but can be 5/6 events, maybe around 4000 euro!
For me, it is worth it because I have sponsors and I win, but this year I got cut a lot and I think that it will be the same for everyone, and we have one more discipline to do, foil! So I think my costs for the season will be around 30,000 euro!”
