Stand up paddling: a modern alternative for the traditional paddlesports in the Olympic program?

Friday August 7th the International Surfing Association (ISA) addressed the Tokyo's 2020 Additional Events Programme Panel in the Japanese capital. ISA revealed details of the disciplines, confirming that traditional short board surfing and stand-up paddle boarding were those chosen to be put forward to the Panel.

Their plan also featured either a man-made wave facility similar to Surf Snowdonia, an inland surf lagoon located in Wales, which opened at the beginning of the month, or a temporary construction to be located on one of the city’s beaches.

Surfing’s proposal also revealed that they would include 120 athletes, featuring 60 men and 60 women competing across the two disciplines, with 74 in the traditional surfing event and 48 in the stand-up paddle competition.
