Good day for Taithi, a sad day for the Olympic Moviment

Good, I hope for surfing in Tahiti, skateboarding in Guadeloupe, breakdancing in French Guiana...so we can forget that they're part of the Olympics.

The thing is that Tahiti is like one of the pinnacles of surfing, so it would be nice to see an Olympic contest in one of the historic homes of surfing.

Mainland France also has surfing spots that are part of the World Surf League so it's likely that it won't be in Tahiti.

It would honestly be fantastic to have surfing be held in Tahiti, but Biarritz will almost certainly be chosen.

 

Unless they go mad and decide to use a wave pool.

That would make it seem a little like Paris 1900, where a large number of eventual participants didn't even know they were participating in the Olympics :p

St. Louis 1904 was worse (Those games will also be the first story of Totallympics Audio Service’s new show coming up sometime this year (autumn most likely)

It’s a bit ambitious, but I’m honestly down to give this event a shot. There are some really cool ideas in video about the event. Based of the description, it would meet my personal requirements for Olympic inclusion. Video Description:

I actually LOVED the idea.

 

It's different to the rest of the sailing events, loved that it runs for three days and it's a large endurance race. I'm really hyped right now!

 

 

I only had bad reviews about it cause I heard some international sailors trash it, cause aparently it's very expensive (I mean, isn't all sailing expensive?). But it really adds something new to the games.
