Getting All Crazy for President-Elect Obama

obama surf tshirtThe fact that the oval office is only weeks away from being occupied by a Hawaii-born, wave-riding president for the very first time continues to draw loads of interest from all over the surfing community. The Oahu-based t-shirt company Crazy Shirts is the latest to hop on the Obama wave, as they have just come out with an “Obama Surfs” shirt design in order to pay tribute to this ultra-historic election. “We think it’s really cool that our next President is a kama’aina and wanted to commemorate this moment in history with a special design,” said Crazy Shirts CEO Mark Hollander. “People around the world saw photos of President-elect Obama showing off his body surfing skills when he was back in Hawaii this summer. Now, we have a shirt that lets everyone know that our next President knows how to live the Crazy Shirts lifestyle, too.”

The shirt itself actually looks pretty smooth. The front reads “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, President Obama 2009″ alongside a wave-riding bodysurfer and the Hawaiian Island chain, while “Obama Surfs” over a barreling wave graces the back.

Overall, people throughout the world are pretty stoked on the change in leadership in the U.S. For surfers, being able to take pride in the fact that Barack Obama is one of our own makes it all just a bit sweeter.
