History was made when Barack Obama was elected president —the first we know of to hit the waves as a surfer and body boarder.
To commemmorate the moment, Crazy Shirts is honoring the Hawaii-born President elect with the release of its “Obama Surfs” white crew-neck T-shirt, available at select retail stores in Hawaii, Laguna Beach and San Diego, as well as online at crazyshirts.com.
“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 front new “Obama Surfs” T-shirt 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. The shirts are available in adult sizes and retail for $25.
