Surfs up! As part of White House photographer Pete Souza's photo essay review of 2012, the White House released this image of President Obama on Christmas break in Hawaii.
Souza's caption for the photo:
A nice way to celebrate the New Year for the President was to jump in the ocean in his native state of Hawaii. He was on his annual Christmas vacation with family and friends, and went swimming at Pyramid Rock Beach in Kaneohe Bay.
