Get Ricardo Christie back on the World Tour

Help me get to the remaining 2013 World Qualifying Series events around the world so I can become the next Kiwi to qualify for the Elite Surfing World Tour.

My Sportfunder purpose is to fund my travel overseas to compete in the remaining World Qualifying Series events of 2013 so I have the potential to qualify for the 2014 World Tour.

Money generously donated will be spent on my competition entry fees and travel to these countries for these contests:

Mexico-            June 17-23 (6 star),
July 2-7 (4 star)
El Salvador-     July 9-14 (6 star)
Azores-             September 3-8 (PRIME)
Portugal-         October 21-27 (PRIME)
Brasil-               October 29-November 3 (PRIME)
Hawaii-             November 12-24 (PRIME), November 25-December 6 (PRIME)

"Ricardo has showed the potential he has for the future. I find when guys have a strong year early in their career, they bounce back the next year even better. On top of that, Ricardo is an integral part of NZ surfing and a great bloke to have around. I recommend anyone to have Ricardo on their team. Cheers" Mick Fanning 

I put in some "actual" work and saved enough money to travel to the Gold Coast in February to compete in my first international event of the year, the Breaka Burleigh Pro, a 4 star World Qualifying Series competition. Amongst many Elite World Tour surfers, I made it to the semi finals, placing 3rd Overall and reigniting my passion and confidence in a competition vest. My dream is not over and I believe I am more ready than ever to compete against the best surfers in the world to fight for a spot on the Elite World Tour. I believe having a Kiwi on the World Tour is necessary for the growth of New Zealand Surfing and the awareness of such a beautifully unique sport in our country.

I want to inspire the youth of Aotearoa to live their dreams and fight for what they love. Doing what you love is so important, no matter how hard it may seem.
