Surfing will make its debut at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, just across the water from Tofino – some 7,500-kilometres.

Canada’s team will begin its selection process on the coast as it is colloquially referred to at the 2019 Rip Curl Nationals happening May 10 through to the 12th as well as the actual qualification trials following on the 13th and 14th.

Several island surfers will be looking to make a splash at the annual event.
