(WFLA) — For the first time, surfing is an Olympic sport next summer. Elite competitors from all over the world will come together to ride the waves in Tokyo.
There will also be people studying the swell behind the scenes including the man who will be the first-ever lead forecaster for Olympic surfing.
“I definitely didn’t get into this thinking I was going to be the first forecaster for the Olympics for surfing, which is obviously a huge honor and a really prestigious competition, and we’re really excited about it,” said Kurt Korte.
Korte is the Lead Forecaster for Surfline and lives along the coast of North Carolina.
