Former President Barack Obama, and his wife, Michelle, have spent some vacationing with Richard Branson since leaving the White House. The Virgin Group founder put up a blog post with pictures and video of the ex-president kite surfing off one of Branson’s private islands in the British Virgin Islands.
Branson writes that Obama, who’s a native of Hawaii, told him he was prevented from surfing by his security detail during his time in office.
Branson says after spending a couple days learning to kitesurf, Obama bested the billionaire in a watersport challenge. He says inviting the Obamas to his island was “a huge honor.” Obama spent his first days after leaving Washington vacationing in Palm Springs, California.
