The $1 Million prize was put together mostly by major sponsors to the event. The prize is surely enough to get by for a while on, but we don't see Gayda leaving the water anytime soon.
Gayda may be the next biggest thing to hit the tides. One thing is for sure, this is not the last time we will see Kevin Gayda.
