Obama and Branson kitesurf in Virgin Islands-NewsCO

February 7, 2017

Former President Barack Obama, and his wife, Michelle, have spent some time 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 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.

“This will be the last time you surf for eight years,” a security officer told him, according to the blog post.

Branson says after spending two days learning to kitesurf, Obama bested the billionaire in a watersport challenge.

Inviting the Obamas to his island was “a huge honor” he said.

Jack Brockway, a photographer and friend of Branson, said it was a privilige to photograph Obama.
