About Surfing

Surfing will feature for the first time at an Olympic Games at Tokyo 2020 as one of five sports set to their make official debut in Japan.

Shortboard events for men and women will make up the programme in Tokyo with 20 athletes in each event set to compete.

The four-man heat method will be used with four athletes at a time out on the water. Judges determine the two winners of each round based on the type and difficulty of what each surfer does as well as speed, power and flow. The length of the heat depends on the conditions and can last 20 to 25 minutes with each surfer’s best two scores counting.
