What will Trump do for surfing?

Obama was no slouch when it came to wave sliding, what are your thoughts on the Trumpinator getting some sick pits? Gonna be a drop in merchant worse than the Brazzos or likely to ban them from Cali?

He's a (shit) skiier, not a surfer.

Details of his plans are still emerging, he's promised to be more protectionist of US manufacturers. His election along with the Brexit vote many believe is the final days of globalisation and the worlds major powers will retreat into their own borders.
Trumps plans are to make the US the most attractive business destination in the world. Corporate tax is nearly 40%, he plans to reduce it to 15, the second lowest. (Ireland is the lowest)
US companies hold $2.4 trillion in capital outside the US, because they don't want to pay the high rates, Trump is offering a 10% rate to all those who bring that money home.
What does it mean for surfing?.......well if the threatened high import taxes of Toyota's is applied to all far east imports, what is the future of all those US companies having boards, wetsuits etc made in China, Thailand etc.
Will it mean a return to the boom days of the 60/70's for board manufacturers and a new O'neil factory just outside Santa Cruz?
One thing is certain 'The times really are a changing'
