Professional surfers will be riding the waves again on Sunday for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic shut down the sport in March. The Surf Ranch in Lemoore, California, some 100 miles from the Pacific Ocean, will provide a perfect bubble for the World Surf League’s Rumble at the Ranch featuring 16 surfers, including 11-time world champion Kelly Slater and Olympic qualifiers Kolohe Andino, Caroline Marks and four-time reigning world champ Carissa Moore. It’s a welcome return for a sport that was set to make its Olympic debut at the Tokyo Games, which have been postponed for a year.
