Where Would You Surf if You Won the PowerBall Jackpot?
We all read the stories about the PowerBall Lottery Jackpot in the United States that reached $1.5 billion. It was an unsightly amount of money that most of us can only dream of winning someday.
CNN reported that there were three winners who shared the biggest ever global lottery jackpot. However, it wasn’t just citizens of the United States who were eligible to take home the jackpot. LottoLand is a new website that allows users to play the PowerBall in the United States along with other regional based lotteries from around the world. Thus, it could’ve quite possibly been a winner from outside the country taking home the $1.5 billion jackpot. Imagine that?
So for a second, imagine if you’d have won the jackpot. Where would you head off to surf? Here are three spots around the world to consider if you come across an unbelievable amount of money anytime soon. Or if you want to raid that piggy bank and set off on a journey to remember.
Rincon, Puerto Rico
If you fly to San Juan it will take you a 10-minute cross-country walk to get to Rincon – it’s that close to the airport. A wonderful spot to surf, the region is a very quiet Puerto Rican town that has built a name for itself off the back of its famous surfing spot. As List 25 suggest, “there’s a opportunity to get barreled with the locals,” here so don’t miss out if you get the chance to travel to Rincon.
White Beach, Okinawa, Japan
White Beach has wonderful sandbars and are the perfect spot for people to train and practice their surfing techniques. A hotspot for local surfers and tourists the region becomes extremely busy over the weekends. For advanced surfers, they are encouraged to sample the “nearby break reefs such as Aha-Yoko or Suicide Cliffs” for maximum thrills.
