With all eyes on Rio, the Flow Sport community has their own reason to celebrate Olympic News. It was just announced by the International Olympic Committee to approve the addition of skateboarding and surfing for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

This means that two sports who have had top athletes competing at the highest level for years will finally be recognized in the most prestigious international games. The Flow sport community around the world is buzzing with anticipation for the next Summer Olympics where they will finally be given their own chance at the podium.
While snowboarding was the first of the big three board sports to make its Olympic debut back in 1998, it will have taken 22 years for skateboarding and surfing to follow. The debate of whether these sports should be included was an interesting one along the way.
Although most people in the community are excited by this announcement, some people fear that it will take the purity away from these Flow sports by making them too mainstream. Many fans of skateboarding and surfing have often wanted to keep these cultures away from mass media, while on the other side, many pros want to be recognized as the top athletes they are.
Here, we asked some Local Experts and goFlow fans what they think of Surfing and Skateboarding making the Olympic games. Post on our Facebook page if you want to join the discussion!

      “I think it’s wonderful surfing is finally making it into the olympics….  Every 4 years the olympics brings the world together, just as the ocean has always tied all countries all people together on this beautiful planet… So excited for the future of surfing, the future of humanity and this beautiful world we call home “

       “My thoughts on the Olympics… that it will open the eyes to 
The non skate world, to be viewed as a legitimate career goal.
Will it hurt the underground community ? I think not 
Those are always the ones who keep the dream alive..”
