The International Surfing Association (ISA) has expressed its delight at the decision by Tokyo 2020 to recommend to the Internationsl Olympic Committee (IOC) that Surfing is to be included on the Sports Programme for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The IOC will now make the final decision on the sports to be added to the 2020 Programme at the 129th IOC Session in Rio in August 2016.
The IOC also added skateboarding to the shortlist of five sports to be potentially added to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic roster.
As we all know in the action sport industry Surfing is the mother sport for all our board pursuits. This has an incredible and growing global appeal, particularly amongst young at heart and we believe that the dynamic energy of the sport and its fan base around the world would open doors to thrusted technologies like Freedom Electric and beyond.
