Although surfing may have already missed out on its chance for the 2020 Olympics, (the ISA announced in July surfing did not make the Olympic committee short list) would you be stoked if it could be there.
Last week, while the rest of the world watched Olympic games in England, a few 100,000 surfing fans were watching live feed from the Nike U.S. Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach, California. If it were an Olympic event, that number would be in the millions. Even so, it was a fun event to watch. It had as much drama and human interest as any Olympic game.
