Tokyo 2020 olympics surfing location and movie “Tsurigasaki Beach”  Japanese surfer call it “Shidashita”

Added on July 27

There are free surfing videos on Japanese broadcasters. Please click.

Today is May 4, 2021.

This time, I would like to introduce the Olympic venue.
The Olympics have been postponed from 2020 to 2021 due to Covid 19.
Today is May 4, 2021.Covid 19 isn’t over yet.

I don’t know if the Olympics can be held as it is.
I think many Japanese people are against hosting the Olympics.
However, it seems that the ICO and the Japanese government are planning to hold the Olympics forcibly.

Below is a link to the Tsurigasaki surfing beach on Google Maps.

Japanese surfers call “Tsurigasaki Beach” “Shida-Shita”

Tsurigasaki beach is the correct name.
However, surfers are nicknamed Shidashita.
志田下= Shida-shita

Wikipedia explains the origin of the nickname as follows.
”From 1958 to 1985, the Shida(志田) family was a seaside clubhouse was running. ”

In Japanese, shita(下) means under.
It means a surfing point under the Shida family’s seaside club House.

This is the place where the first round of WCT was held in 2005

The first round of WCT QUICKSILVER PRO 2005 was the place where was held. (Originally, it was planned to be held at another Hebara point, but because the waves in Hebara were small condition, only the first round was held at Tsurigasaki Surfing Beach.)

In my personal opinion, I would like the Olympics to be postponed until covid 19 converges.
However, when I see this facility, I think that it will always be held.
