Thoroughly enjoyed the Olympics, especially all the new sports. 

I must admit I was a sceptic where BMX, skateboarding and climbing were concerned, but I was glued to my TV when they were on. Really exciting. The Japanese did well.

I'm glad they were well received.

Surfing will be a difficult event to permanently add - given not all seas have decent surf, not to mention landlocked countries.

There is clear skill and athleticism needed for BMX, skateboarding and climbing.  I don't see why they should not be permanent additions.

Surfing might be a problem for a few countries but there are surfing pools in a number of countries. The Yeppoon one in OZ produces 8 ft. waves.  Not quite as high as sea surfing but should test a surfer's skills nevertheless.

The truth is, artificial waves are the fairest way to have the competition.  Everyone is surfing the same wave under the same conditions.

"artificial waves are the fairest way to have the competition.  Everyone is surfing the same wave under the same conditions."

Agree with that.
