Our President Surfs!!

The president of The United States of America surfs.

Not only is President Barack Obama the first African American elected into office, he is also our first president to surf! Growing up on the island of Oahu, Obama didnt live more than 20 minutes away from one of the best bodysurfing/bodyboarding waves in the world, Sandy Beach. Sandy’s (as the locals call it) goes off in the Summer when the South swells start rolling up the Pacific to detonate on this notorious stretch of sand. Known for having the most neck and back injuries out of any other surf spot in the world, its safe to say that Obama charges! Check out this video of him ripping it up on a routine visit back to the islands! Pretty cool if you ask me!

  • I used to surf Sandys all the time when I was a kid. It used to get way better when all the sand was in the water. They pushed it all up to the wall where there used to be an 8ft drop. Some kook tourist fell and broke a leg and sued the state. Still gets fun though!
