Surf's up for Obama! Crazy Shirts honors Hawaii-born President-elect, and bodysurfer, Barrack Obama with the release of its "Obama Surfs" T-shirt.
The newly designed T-shirt is now 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.
Founded in 1964, Crazy Shirts is among the first companies in Hawaii to design, manufacture and sell the "T-shirt" as we know it today.
Housing the largest printing facility in Hawaii, on the Island of Oahu, and employing more than 400 employees, the company operates retail stores on all major Hawaiian Islands, as well as stores in California, Nevada, South Carolina, and Florida.
