Briefings for the 2020 activity plan of three organizations, including the Japan Surfing Federation, were held in Pacifico Yokohama on the 20th. A “surfing festival” will be held at the venue of the Tokyo Olympics [Olympic] surf competition [July 26-August 2] on the Tsurugasaki shore in Ichinomiya, Chiba, where the venue will be held. We are planning a plan to fully enjoy the tournament, such as surfing and yoga experience sessions taught by the instructor.
Due to the wave conditions, four days of the Olympic eight days will be held. Tickets where you can enjoy the festival together with watching the game are 3,000 yen. According to the Tokyo Olympics / Paralympic Organizing Committee, it will be newly sold at the end of April. No refunds will be given for events such as music.
Atsushi Sakai, President of the Japan Federation, said, "[surfing] will be the first Olympic event to be a formal event. I would like to be a medalist among Japanese athletes."
