Raison d'être 
There was a need.
Let's fill it.

1 May 2020.
Come together in community
in connection.
One earth.
One water.
 
The Call to Action Social Media:
Share Posts in Your Story
Share your thoughts:  Comment.
(especially if it's not something you normally do).

And you don't have to get wet to celebrate, participate (or reflect).

But if you have to get wet, bathtubs, birdbaths, buckets and hoses are encouraged.

A larger Vision is to have Bodysurfing
included into the Olympic Games
as an exhibition sport for Paris 2024.
"Let's ride Surfing's coat tails." Hal Handley, H3O.
From the Official Site... Olympics.org
"SURFING IS A WATER SPORT
WHERE AN ATHLETE RIDES A WAVE
STANDING OR IN ANY OTHER POSITION ON A BOARD,
OR JUST WITH HIS BODY
(BODY SURFING)."
The door is open.
There is a need.
Let's fill it.
According to Encyclopedia Britannica:  
"The Olympic Charter indicates
that in order to be accepted,
a sport must be widely practiced
by men in at least 75 countries
and on 4 continents
and by women in no fewer
than 40 countries
and on 3 continents."
