Why the hell does the Kremlin care about surfing?

So there I was getting my normal Facebook dosage, and then I saw something out of the ordinary:

So then I went out to enjoy an evening of skateboarding. When I got back to take my second dosage of Facebook for the day, I noticed that Sputnik posted another Facebook status about the recent swell that came through Hawaii.

Not that I don’t mind Sputnik covering surfing, but as calculated as they are in the media department, especially with cut backs, I can’t understand why they are wasting their time covering surfing. One would figure their economy or war of aggression in Ukraine. The only connection I see between Hawaii and Russia is Edward Snowden. Is this some sort of new cultural diplomacy outreach?  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Given Russias aggressive cyber campaign there was not a chance in hell was going to click on those links!
