(NBC Olympics) — Surfing is set to make its Olympic debut at the Tokyo Games beginning on July 24 (Eastern Time), but the schedule is still subject to change.

The surfing schedule is dependent on expected wave conditions. While the norm for some Olympic sports is to postpone competition in case of bad weather, surfing is known to postpone competition if better conditions are expected later on. If conditions allow, competition can be completed in just four days, but it is possible that more time will be required. Competition will take place over four days between July 24 and August 1. 

When competition does get underway, NBC will livestream every minute of it. Carissa MooreCaroline Marks, Kolohe Andino and John John Florence are set to represent the United Sates.
