Betting on Surfing
Surfing, once only seen as a harmless pastime and the domain only of laid-back people living by the sea in the USA or Australia, has become a competitive sport in recent years with international competitions regularly being organised and backed by major sports good companies.
Betting on surfing as a sport really is in its infancy but if you know a thing or two about 360s, bombs, clean waves and riptides then you could take advantage of whatever prices are offered up by online layers.
Surfing’s Biggest Events
Surfing has really taken hold around the world now, whether in warm climates or around the coasts of the UK and Ireland, with these competitions being among the ones people want to be involved in most.
The ASP World Tour
Made up of the 45 best male and 17 best female surfers, the tour visits various spots around the world and draws in big crowds.
The O’Neill World Cup of Surfing
Held every year between November and December, odds are often put up on this major tournament with a $125,000 prize handed to the winner.
The Hawaiian Pro
Taking part in one of the heartlands of the sport, the Hawaiian Pro comes with a $100,000 purse and is often bet heavily especially in the United States.
How to play
Types of Bets Available on Surfing
Not many bookmakers will offer odds on surfing at all and when they do, their prices will usually surround an overall tournament winner only as props haven’t really become a thing in the sport as yet.
Some major firms are offering prices though and with surfing competitions often featuring many competitors, odds can seem generous meaning if you have an inkling of which contenders have a real chance you can back a few of them at 10/1 or bigger and be in a profit should one of them come up with the goods.
Tips for Betting on Surfing Competitions
This is truly a niche sport so as well as the same advice that comes with betting on any sport, which is to get the best value for money possible, you should only place bets on surfing if you know the personalities involved as well as the intricacies of the sport.
If you do know your stuff then you are in a great position, as it is quite likely you may even know more about surfing than the odds compilers and so it should be pretty simple to spot a betting mismatch that you can take advantage of.
Surfing Betting Offers
Not too many surfing-specific offers have been known to be forthcoming from bookmakers in the past but as always, the recommendation is to use your more generalised bonuses wisely.
If you are due a loyalty bonus or have received a new customer offer and you know a thing or two about the best surfers in the world, you could use your bonus money on this as long as it doesn’t come with a very restrictive rollover requirement which prohibits you from being able to withdraw funds.
