Surfing at the Olympics

Surfing is one of the five new sports proposed by the Tokyo 2020 Organizing Committee to incorporate more youthful and vibrant competitions and culture into the Olympic program. In 2016, their inclusion was approved by the International Olympic Committee.

The competition will take place in the ocean, so the state of the waves, the direction and strength of the wind and the flow of the tide will be factors to take into account. No two waves are the same, which makes surfing a competition in which athletes compete against each other as they face the changing conditions of nature.

Surfing in Tokyo 2021

Surfing as a sport has a large number of categories depending on the type of board used and its size. The longboard It is about nine feet (2.7 m) long and more buoyant than the shortboard, which first appeared around 1970 and is approximately six feet (1.8 m) long.

The shortboard It has a pointed tip that helps you turn, is faster to maneuver, and tends to be ideal for performing the most dynamic techniques. The shortboard will be the discipline that will take place at the Tokyo 2020 Games, where 20 men and 20 women will compete in separate competitions.
