With the 2024 ISA World Surfing Games wrapping up in Puerto Rico this weekend, the Olympic Surfing picture has grown much clearer. With 14 surfers making the cut, including 14-year-old Chinese surfer Siqi Yang, the list of who's in for the 2024 Paris Games is largely locked in. 

The newest round of qualifiers will be joined by ten men and eight women from the 2023 WSL Championship Tour results, including American surfers Carissa Moore, Caroline Marks, Griffin Colapinto and John John Florence, as well as four men and four women from the 2023 ISA World Surf Games.

The opening ceremonies for the 2024 Olympics will take place in Paris on July 26. The waiting period for the Olympic Surfing event runs from July 25 through August 1, which means if there's swell straight out of the gates surfers won't be marching in a parade with their countrymen and fellow competitors. If there's more swell at the end of the waiting period, surfers can embrace a unique Olympic experience and opt to travel nearly 10,000 miles from Paris to Tahiti, hopefully getting to the End Of The Road in time to surf their heat. Whatever happens next, here's who's in so far:
