Organizers of the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics will sell alternative competition day tickets for surfing in case weather conditions force the rescheduling of the currently planned event dates, a source close to the matter said Tuesday.

As surfing competitions are dependent on suitable weather, including sufficiently large waves, tickets will be sold for a total of four extra days, falling either side of the scheduled July 26-29 competition, according to the source.
