    I don't know too many politicians, who will talk about surfers on their campaign trail. But having said that, politicians who are more environmentally friendly will do more for keeping our oceans and beaches protected and clean. Environmental concerns often leans to the left.

    I take a more pessimistic view. Neither major party will do much FOR surfing, so which party will do the least to HARM surfing.

    For the past 25 years the republican party has favored generous federal expenditures for beach replenishment. When democrats proposed cutting the federal cost sharing for beach nourishment, the republican led congress (mid 1990s) overrode it each year. I know there are plenty of valid economic reasons for pumping sand on the beach, it protects property, and drives a lot of tourism dollars into local economies.

    yeah...true...and dont get me wrong i hear ya, but inlet jetties, groins, piers, outfall pipes and the like arent natural either, and those unnatural structures have created a lot of surfable waves for us in the mid atlantic.

    agreed,and those jetties in Buxton,but their beachbreaks are better than mine because they don't pump sand,though a lot of homeowners probably wish they would.i vote no sand pumping,please

    maybe if quicksilver or billabong sent a big ol check to fund a politicians campaign would they support something as trivial as surfing.

    Im niether republican or democrat but.....(even though the next few statements may seem biased)

    Obama went to punahou high school in Honolulu which is only a few miles from south shore oahu. If he were on the fence about an issue such as surfing, my guess is he would support it. Democrats are generally environmentalists and more down to earth people as some may describe as opposed to their nerdy money grubbing counterparts (republicans).
    A good example of a Republican is Christine Odonnell. Somebody with no apparent grasp on any scientific information, thinks the earth is 5000 years old, jesus is going to save us from our problems, and you should go to jail for mastubation. See the Odonnell ads to the right......nuff said. Hey swellinfo, did they drop a dime or what? "paid for by friends of christine odonnell" ....Republicans see her as a moron but they are still throwing huge bucks her way because of the momentum she has in this election. If she wins Im going to run for president of the universe.
