    Exclamation What's a pro skater's salary??

    im confused, because often i read of pro skaters sharing rooms or houses with some other pro skaters, giving me the impression that they're barely getting by, then other times i see people like rob dyrdek and other pro skaters with luxiorious items and such.

    so how much, say would a:

    pro skater with a pro deck make?

    pro skater with a signature shoe make?

    pro skater with both make?

    or a pro skater who has multiple signature items (i.e. prod, bam) make?

    Depends all on the popularity of the person at that moment. Like bams got the life while other pros with the same stuff don't (Shoes, boreds, clothing items, and such).

    Salary depends on shoes, and video parts, and the popularity of that video. Decks make nothing any more.

    contests also make skaters money, but it does matter on their popularity, many pro skaters work regular part time jobs

    Them you get certain pros(Mullen, Chet Thomas, Hawk) Who get loads of money because not only do they have multiple pro model shoes and decks, but they own the companies. Mullens got half of Almost with Daewon where he gets wheels and decks, and Tensor where he gets trucks and bearings. Chets got Darkstar decks and wheels, Anex trucks and Caprix helmits. Hawk has birdhouse(I think) Hawk clothing and maybe some other company. Mullen make millions from World industires.

    1. Board sales (2nd best moneymaker)
    2. Contests (3rd best depending on how many you enter)
    3. Shoe sales (Best moneymaker)
