  • Paris 2024 Seeding Order

    The seeding order for Surfing in the Paris 2024 Olympic Games will be determined based on individual athlete results of the 2024 ISA World Surfing Games (WSG).

    For qualified athletes who do not attend the 2024 WSG 2024, either because their eligibility does not require it or they are injured/other, they will be seeded after the 2024 WSG results in the following order that they qualified:

    1) WSL World Championship Tour (WCT) rank
    2) Continental Qualifying Position from 2023 WSG
    3) Team Champion slot from WSG 2022
    4) Team Champion slot from WSG 2024
    5) Universality slot

    This decision was taken by the ISA Technical Committee and ISA Executive Committee to ensure the most recent comparison of nearly all the athletes in the same event in terms of their performance in a “heavy water” venue. The seeding will also incentivize and motivate all the surfers to attend WSG 2024 if they want to compete for potentially a better seed.

  • Wave Location


    CLICK HERE to see a map overview of each of the 3 podiums. The ISA will run competition at 2 of the 3 podiums (Rastrial, El Pico & Margara) throughout the competition. The podiums will be decided based on swell and conditions.

    These breaks were strategically selected by the ISA and Local Hosts in Puerto Rico as we emphasize the importance of the 2024 WSG venue having similar characteristics to Teahupo’o, the Paris 2024 Olympic Venue for Surfing. While the ISA always encourages participation from all interested National Teams, the 2024 WSG venue is unique in nature and requires a higher level of expertise than previous WSG venues. Please take this into consideration when selecting your National Teams to ensure the performance and safety of your athletes.

    Detailed wave information can be found on each here:

    Rastrial & El Pico

    Red lines indicate rocky shallow shore line with urchins. Podium 1 (Rastrial), the farthest East wave, is mainly a left hand reef break that also offers some shorter right waves. It is not recomended that surfers paddle straight in or out from the sandy beach at Rastrial especially on low tide it can be very dangerous due to sea urchins and the shallow reef. The paddle out for Podium 2 (El Pico) is at the same spot as for el Rastrial. El Pico is an A Frame Peak also reef bottom. That offers barrels and good sections Right and Left with the left being the main wave.


    Podium 3 (Margara) is the farthest west peak. It is a heavy water A-Frame reef break with good barrel sections going left or right. The paddle out area is marked in blue. Although there are other key holes to paddle in at Margara, we recomend competitors use the marked paddle out/in spot through the channel of the Left hand break.
