Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., caught some waves with surfing legend Kelly Slater for his birthday while campaigning in Hawaii.
Kennedy posted the video of him surfing with Slater, and surf rock playing in the background on X, formerly Twitter.
“Best birthday present ever: Catching waves with 11-time world surf champion [Slater] on North Shore, Pua’ena Point,” Kennedy wrote on Wednesday.

Kennedy made the post amid his visit to the Aloha State, where he held a rally in his bid for president.
The independent candidate is challenging President Biden and the eventual Republican presidential nominee for the Oval Office.
Kennedy has been making his rounds throughout the country and in the media as he has pushed forward with his campaign and has garnered support from several celebrities.
Rock and roll legend Eric Clapton raised a whopping $2.2 million for Kennedy at a Los Angeles fundraiser in September, his campaign said.

Kennedy’s campaign said it raised $1 million while the remaining $1.2 million went to a political action committee supporting the Democrat’s presidential bid.

In November, a trio of former professional athletes announced that they were throwing their support behind Kennedy to take the White House.

The athletes said that they like the cut of Kennedy’s jib — all three pointed to what they say are the independent candidate’s genuineness, honesty and openness to conversations about policies as reasons they support him.

Stockton said he believes that Kennedy “has been put on this planet for just this moment in time” and that there’s “a real need for him and his leadership.”
“There’s a need for very smart people in these positions that have integrity that [is] off the charts, that have the stamina and strength to be able to speak and be a leader 24/7, not just on occasion or on blips,” Stockton said.
