Former U.S. president Barack Obama, and his wife, Michelle, have spent some much deserved vacation time with Richard Branson since leaving the White House January 2oth.
The Virgin Group founder put up a blog post with pictures and video of the ex-president kitesurfing 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 water sport challenge.
He says inviting the Obamas to his island was “a huge honour.”
Obama spent his first days after leaving Washington vacationing in Palm Springs, California.
