Surfing will feature in the 2018 Asian Games for the first time in history
“We are delighted that Surfing will take place on natural waves if it is admitted to the Tokyo 2020 Sports Programme. Surfing is hugely popular in Japan and the country has hosted many national and international competitions in a number of beautiful ocean locations. There are some great and thriving beach-based Surfing hotspots to choose from which would be ideal for Olympic Surfing.
Sports such as skateboarding and surfing will have their chance to impress the International Olympic Committee later this year as they push to be included at the 2020 Tokyo Games.
