NECKER ISLAND, British Virgin Islands (AP) — 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 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 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.

    Diane, you are so right, I will never again call myself a democrat, they are w/o a doubt spineless jellyfish. They allowed congress and the senate to treat Prez O like they did and did not support him one bit. I blame them as well as the redumblicans for the orange cheeto now in office. Had they had any kind of sense, intelligence, or back-bone our country would be in much better shape.

    Oh hold it, there definitely should be outraged about the failed raid in Yemen, if it happened on Prez O’s watch we would never hear the end of it. Damn white people!

  3. Hey Chris, I just thought you would like to know President Obama did not take the most vacations, it’s ok to hate but have facts our current President has caused an uproar all over the world and after just two weeks he goes to Florida for what some would call a vacation. I hope you had a problem with other Presidents taking vacations as you did with one of the best Presidents this country has ever had! You should ask yourself why his vacations bothered you.

  4. There’s something behind he’s big wide grin. He’s probably saying, “I told U this fool was unfit”. Elections have consequences and we’re finding out in a very rude way. Also if u look at his fam photos compared to the present prez fam photos, u can see which fam is happy and love each other. I’m just to see it with the new so called prez. The current prez is pathetic

      • And u think ppl feel safe under an administration that was ill prepared for this Muslim ban? The same administration that gave the ok for a raid in Yemen that he made at a dinner Confrence. A raid that killed a navy seal. Where’s the freaking outrage from the pathetic dem party. A party I have diss myself from. They are a group of spineless jellyfish.
