Olympics should only include sports that are timed, distance based, etc. that has no judging. Anything with judging is controversial and was originally added so the United States could get more medals. Basketball. Baseball Surfing. Flag football now?? Really? WTH. (n)
So no gymnastics or ice skating? Or diving?

+1, you can go ahead and extend that beyond the olympics too. surfing doesn't need to be treated as a sport.

Preach bro. If you ask me I'll tell you, surfing's not a sport, it's a way of life, it's no hobby. It's a way of looking at that wave and saying, "Hey bud, let's party!"

Still confusing.
it there is a real risk why don't the surfers pull out

If there is a real risk and surfers dont pull out then consumers should pull out.

Hard to see how any participants surf the region outside of contests going forward if this process truly has a detrimental local impact.
Because most of the surfers in the Olympics don’t actually care. The “prestige” of being in the Olympics is more important to them.

I don’t know who is actually invited to it but I guarantee none of them are speaking against it, at least not publicly.

I like the Olympics but man, they have way too many bullshit sports.
