Olympic Surfing Draw Announced

Form Guide

During the recent Tahiti Pro, the ISA announced the draw for the upcoming Paris by way of Teahupoo Olympics.

As the surf delivered, we've got a better handle on which surfers - the CT surfers at least - will be a threat at the Olympics, and with this in mind it's curious to see the names in Heat 4 of the women.

Amongst a raft of little-known surfers, Heat 4 features Caity v Molly v Tati.

If the surf arrives, Tati will go. That much is assured (WSL/Sloane)

Fortunately, the Olympics has adopted the same format as the CT, so the winner will skip a round with the other two having one last chance in Round 2 - otherwise known as the Elimination Round in the CT - before moving on.

This means all three can progress, though two of them will have a harder route to the finals.

The women's opening heat draw for 2024:

  • Heat 1: Yolanda Hopkins (POR), Caroline Marks (USA), Sarah Baum (RSA)
  • Heat 2: Sol Aguirre (PER), Janire Etxabarri (ESP), Vahine Fierro (FRA)
  • Heat 3: Anat Lelior (ISR), Sanoa Dempfle-Olin (CAN), Tyler Wright (AUS)
  • Heat 4: Tatiana Weston-Webb (BRA), Molly Picklum (AUS), Caitlin Simmers (USA)
  • Heat 5: Johanne Defay (FRA), Brisa Hennessy (CRC), Candelaria Resano (NCA)
  • Heat 6: Tainá Hinckel (BRA), Camila Kemp (GER), Luana Silva (BRA)
  • Heat 7: Nadia Erostarbe (ESP), Siqi Yang (CHN), Saffi Vette (NZL)
  • Heat 8: Carissa Moore (USA), Teresa Bonvalot (POR), Matsuda Shino (JPN)

The men's opening heat draw for 2024:

  • Heat 1: Ethan Ewing (AUS), Tim Elter (GER), Jordy Smith (RSA)
  • Heat 2: Joan Duru (FRA), Jack Robinson (AUS), Matthew McGillivray (RSA)
  • Heat 3: Alonso Correa (PER), Filipe Toledo (BRA), Kanoa Igarashi (JPN)
  • Heat 4: Gabriel Medina (BRA), Connor O’Leary (JPN), Bryan Perez (ESA)
  • Heat 5: Ramzi Boukhiam (MAR), Billy Stairmand (NZL), João Chianca (BRA)
  • Heat 6: Andy Criere (ESP), John John Florence (USA), Alan Cleland (MAR)
  • Heat 7: Kauli Vaast (FRA), Lucca Mesinas (PER), Griffin Colapinto (USA)
  • Heat 8: Rio Waida (INA), Leonardo Fioravanti (ITA), Inaba Reo (JPN)

There's a ten-day waiting period for the surfing, running from the 27th July to 4th August, with organisers needing between three and four days to finish the event.

Timing is uncertain as, where the Olympics differs from the CT, the heat times can vary greatly. The Technical Director decides heat times, which can run from 15 minutes to 45 minutes, pending conditions.

Late elaboration. There 206 nations in the Olympics and there is definitely not 206 nations competing in the surfing. It wasn’t so much a surfing question, more a how do countries decide what events they’ll enter question (read: silly)

For me surfing at the Olympics is a novelty side show. Bit like golf or tennis. If it weren’t at Chopes I’d not have a skerrick of interest.

It’s a strange choice for an Olympic sport. The elite level tour (CT) is largely comprised of surfers from only three Olympic nations: US, Australia and Brazil.

I’m way more invested in what happens in some of the sports that only get their limelight every few years.

The wave pool is really the best solution for the the Olympics. Boring as fuck but totally level playing field , identical waves for each competitor .
The ocean is not even, every heat gets served up more or less waves than the previous. The Tahiti contest just gone has some good examples of the better surfer losing early due to unlucky consistency or heat draws ( which looking at the Olympic draws is already happening Tati and caity and molly all in one heat.
Personally I can't wait to see some nobody from .......... (insert random country) get nailed at Chopes , it will be a spectacle no doubt but the way to find the best surfer in the world ? The wsl runs pro surfing and they can't even do that right , look who the current world champs are, neither of them will win gold this year in Tahiti.

If you're wondering why the seeding appears all over the place, especially compared to CT seeding (highest vs lowest etc). It's been explained to me by someone who knows, that the ISA did a fairly lacklustre job of telling surfers that the recent ISA World Surfing Games in Puerto Rico was the sole arbiter of their Olympic seeding, and also that the heat draw wouldn't be the same as Tokyo Olympics (it now replicates a CT heat draw).

That's why Round 1 in the Women's has Tati (who's the highest seeded woman - she came second to Sal who didn't qualify), is up against Molly and Caity who both had already qualified and competed without much intensity in Puerto Rico.

The argument being, if they knew it was going to affect seeding all the surfers might've tried to win the ISA Games as it would give them a better shot at the Olympics.

How Evil Commies ideally hacked the 5 eyed Monster to Death.

(Forward) US forbid China to access Oz-US Pacific Cable...
How Commies ideally orchestrate US Elections & Spy on Aukus

China bought & own Olympics & Rights, they get to mandate which Nation to ideally Fuck over.
2014 Russia > Brazil > SK > Tokyo > China> France > Italy > US > ? > Oz > ? > Germany!
( Ask how fuckin' dumbarse are Western Allies? )

2013 Olympic's long dead and dying > IOC sold out Media / security rights to China CCTV
Chinese Deals Shuffled & extended within CCTV > 2024 / Alibaba >2029 / CMG >2032
Russian FSB rollout SORM > ( All Olympic Cities / Partners must plug into CCTV-Russian Spies! )

Trump / Biden raise fists & forbid China from plugging into Oz Pacific NBN.
Olympic deal ideally mandates China-Putin to orchestrate all US Elections under IOC contracted terms!

China mandated IOC to include Surfing & ordered France to plug in Tahiti to Hook up South America.

'IOC inclusion of Surfing' automatically mandates China < > Tahiti < > South America Cable.
That's why surfing Teahupoo is the Ideal Olympic Sport's Venue.

Ask why tbb's dumbarse Qldurrz jumped for Joy when surrendering their 2032 Aukus Sub HQ to China.
China already own & run Darwin / Melbourne / Newcastle now mandate ALL Port of Bne security!
Correct! IOC mandates which Aukus Port must integrate & surrender all IT security data to China
Recapping that IOC = China = Russian Spy contractual t&c.

Reason why new Premier Taxes Goldie Kiwi Labourers $1,000 to build Chinese Olympic Spy cbd.
(Explanation!) OZ / SEQ labour Hub is over 50km from Bne CBD ($1,000wk Union Tax)
South Bne temp Olympic village is $1,000/wk cheaper to build & more importantly 'dismantle'...Huh?
So that's why outer South Bne Cemetery Games Site was chosen = No $1,000 Penalty + No China!
The idea being to minimise China's Cost benefit ratio to hot wire regions as opposed to CBD...Got it!

IOC Chinese Media sell out SOLD OUT Games Opening Extravaganzas

Q: Why did Tokyo heavily restrict Opening ceremony to Locals only?
Q: Why will France boycott $Gazillion Chinese Spy arena for a makeshift mystery riverside Flotilla?
Q: Why are LA hosting Opening Ceremony in Century old Colosseum with Cave Hieroglyphs
Q: Why is Bne boycotting new Stadium > shifting Arena out & dismantling Spy infested mock Arena

[Factcheck]
China mandated it's Council of free wifi [L]Mayors to bid for Olympics to hook up Qld spy HQ Whole.
ALP Premier was dead against Putin Fox media mandating [L] Mayors to hot wire New Stadiums.

ALP / Premier/s are no match (vs) Murdoch Sports Empire pushin' Putin's [L] Chinese wifi Pawns.
All Qldurrz ever repeatedly berated that ALP fucked up Eddie's Chinese Flip Top & they gotta go!
In fact tbb thinks not one fellow Qldurr knows the half of it, nor cares if Putin Nukes his IOC Stadium.

Why! Coz IOC Contract mandates China to Hotwire ALL Nations CBD Venues/Transit/Air-Rail/Ports.
No point fighting it...Not FIFA/NATO/AUKUS are permitted to step foot in Putin's IOC sweat Shop.

Same reason why Evil sponsors Dutto / US Games CEO mandate delivery of Bne spy HQ to Putin!
Russia / China boss 80% Nukes / 100% Games industry (All Village Idiots know this!)
Q: Why opposition [L] Policy > Surrender 100% SEQ everything to Bankrolling IOC / Nuke Masters!

Ok! Don't believe that, then ask why media hide that China run 100% 2032 SEQ Games security.
C'mon Oz! ACA demands Albo to step down if Gran Tik Toks her Putt Putt

Kind of wrong that you can potentially win Olympic gold without doing a turn. Bad call holding it at Teahupoo in my opinion. Too short, left only and too specialist when big to be a fair venue for Olympic medals. But I guess on degree of difficulty it's a winner if big.

Also fair to say you could win gold in Japan without getting a barrel. And maybe if they ever hold it again in Brazil, you could win a gold with close out airs. That's surfing.

For pure spectacle, Teahupoo is the best choice.
