Since the IOC has pulled Tug-O-War, Live Pigeon Shooting, and my all time favorite, Syncronized Swimming, I feel as though they should consider surfing as a sport into the next summer games. I remember sometime back in the 80's they were considering it, does anyone know what came out of that and why?

What would be the chance of the country having waves at the time of the Olympics?

what if the country happens to be land locked? Or at least really far away from a coastline... It seems like most major countries end up having water access which is utilized in the form of ports for international trade but if some small country/land locked country hosted the summer games.... I'm not sure how that would work out. I gotta admit though, it would be pretty sweet to see surfing in the olympics.

since its like the olympics and all...unless the country is known for waves they would probably make a wave pool so the waves are always consistent

theres wave pool technolgy in the works called "surf the ring". Pretty much the most awesome thing ever. 12 endless waves going at once. look it up. it would be perfect for olympic style competions. of course, its deffinetly not going to be a cheap thing to build just for the olympics but no doubt it would take in mad cash afterwards as wave park sor of deal
