An incredibly lucky 22-year-old surfer managed to go 32 hours without exposure to any election coverage, according to the coastguard.

A coastguard spokesperson told reporters, “A thick neoprene suit has kept him alive at sea, while his mental state has been helped by being out of range of political messaging on television, radio or online.
