I’m seeing (on social media) various recent clips of some members of the USA team surfing in Japan.

The waves seem uninspiring.

Even the NY Times calls the waves "underwhelming".

Maybe instead of trying to grovel on a thruster, each contender should pull up in their own van loaded with the quiver of their choice. Thruster, fish, mid, longboard, mat, boogie, etc. Part of the judging criteria would be choosing the most appropriate craft to make the most out of the conditions. And maybe one of the possible items in the van should be a cup of coffee* in case it's not worth paddling out and more fun to stand around in the peanut gallery watching the waves from the boardwalk.

*Bonus points awarded if the contender chooses the proper coffee vessel.

Not sure how surfing fits into the Olympics, but I like this shirt a lot.
