There will be 2 new official board sports in the 2021 Tokyo Olympics: Surfing and Skateboarding. I had hoped that kiteboarding (hydrofoil course) would be an exhibition event at Tokyo, as is sometimes the case when a new event is scheduled for a future Olympics, but this apparently won't happen. We'll have to wait til 2024 for the official kiteboarding event.

Looks like we may not have to worry about the Olympics taking kiteboarding down a notch for very much longer.....

I would like to see them permanently be in Greece.
