The International Surfing Association (ISA) and the World Surf League (WSL) have reached an agreement on the qualification principles for surfing’s debut in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

According to both organizations, 18 of the 40 places at the Games will be reserved for WSL’s Championship Tour (CT) surfers (10 men and 8 women), with the remaining 22 places determined at the 2019 and 2020 ISA World Surfing Games, the 2019 Pan American Games in Lima, and a single slot (each for men and women) for the host nation, i.e., Japan.
