In 2019, aged just 16, Shino Matsuda provisionally locked in her spot for the 2020 Olympics following her performances in the 2019 ISA World Surfing Games. This came on the back of win in the inaugural Japan Open of Surfing making her one of Japan’s best and brightest talents. The goofy footer started surfing in Chigasaki aged just six and with her timing and talent was sponsored at an early age. Her ultimate goal is to be the first female Japanese surfer on the CT and given her young age and career results she might be the country’s best chance.
