Surfing could become the official state sport of California

On January 8, 2018, California state legislators, Al Muratsuchi and Ian Calderon introduced a bill that aims to establish surfing as California’s official sport. If recognized and approved, it will be the second time surfing is adopted as official state sport, after being designated in Hawaii in 1998. Interestingly, Hawaii opted for having two formal state sports – an individual sport (surfing) and a team sport (outrigger canoe paddling). Assemblymembers Muratsuchi and Calderon are both passionate surfers and believe surfing represents the spirit of the California dream.
