HISTORIC SUNDAY (Olympics kicks off today Saturday in Hawaii)

The world’s top surfers will celebrate their sport’s Olympic debut by competing on Japan’s spectacular Pacific coastline at Shidashita (Shida) beach!

They are 19 hours ahead of us in Hawaii Nei…(easiest way to calculate is to go ahead 24 hours from current HI time and back or minus 5 hours)

Yes, Japan has more than a few surf spots to explore. image: wannasurf.com

Plus, Surfing’s Big debut will have a rare Tropical Cyclone deliver moderate sized ESE swell on day one; winds will not be optimal so it’s still a wait and see through out each day.

HERE is the Schedule (& results when they come in)

How to watch or stream the Olympics: NBC will broadcast the Olympics, with additional coverage on NBCOlympics.com and on the NBC Sports app.
