Democratic hopeful Tulsi Gabbard kicks off 2020 surfing in New Hampshire

• by Nikki Schwab

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, one of the 14 Democrats running for president, became the first hopeful to ever surf off the New Hampshire coast on New Year's Day

Gabbard, a longtime surfer from Hawaii, donned a 'winter wetsuit' and jumped into water that was under 40 degrees

The day before she plunged into 45-degree water with UFC fighter Chuck Rosa to spread awareness about the opioid epidemic 

Gabbard has been laser focused on her efforts to win New Hampshire voters, as the state holds the first presidential primary on February 11 

'If we could go surfing every day and bring everybody out, that'd be awesome,' she said Wednesday
