Because,(just guessing) surfing, much like cycling is done more by those not just inclined, capable, motivated and able to do the sport rather than only watch it. Why do you think TV America loves football and car-racing so much?

A larger percentage of surfers and cyclists share in the sport; in that way, you article doesn't clarify that football and car-racing are much more spectator sports, than participating sports. Now basketball in America; that is probably more of both.
