NASA Discover Tiny Surf Paradise In The Pacific. President Trump Wants To Call It ‘Ivanka'
Thought Hawaii couldn't possibly have more to offer surf lovers? Think again.
Satellite images, released by NASA yesterday morning, have revealed the existence of an undiscovered island in the middle of the Pacific. The news, which has shocked geography enthusiasts everywhere, was revealed via a Facebook Live from the space agency's HQ in Washington.
"They say space is the final frontier, but this discovery proves there's still so much we don't know about our own planet," announced Professor Hugh G. Balls to an enraptured audience on social media, "This new island, roughly six miles across and 66 miles south west of Honolulu, is something we're all really, really, excited about," he added.
As information began to emerge about the island, it became clear that the discovery could be especially good news for surfers; with top-down photos of the landmass suggesting it could be home to one of the world's biggest and best point breaks.
Wave master Kelly Slater was quick to add his own thoughts, telling his legion of fans on Instagram that he was "stoked on the news" and that he couldn't wait to get out there and "tap the hell out of this sick-looking surfing paradise."
President Donald Trump moved quickly to claim the island as an American territory, on the basis that it's situated relatively near to the Hawaiian archipelago.
In an increasingly bizarre rant on Twitter yesterday afternoon, Trump suggested the discovery of a new island proved he was a "much better President than Obama"; citing Obama's inability to find even a single secret island during his eight years in the White House.
Trump also targeted a number of media organisations, and suggested he would be moving to name the island after his daughter Ivanka because of "...the excellent work she's doing for the American people."
