U.S. surfboard makers not so stoked about tariffs2019|01:31
Surfboard makers are getting caught in choppy waters amid a gnarly U.S.-China trade war. When a new round of U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods kick in September 1st , the cost of surfboards will go up. That has surf company executives joining a growing list of U.S. manufacturers and retailers shifting production out of China. Earlier this week, Trump rolled back part of his tariff plan, delaying a 10% duty on items like cellphones and laptops to spare U.S. shoppers during the holidays. Surfboards, however, did not win a reprieve. Despite the tariffs, some American surfboard executives told Reuters they support Trump's trade policy. Lisa Baertlein is in Venice Beach.
