Obamas hang out with billionaire Branson
NECKER ISLAND, British Virgin Islands (AP):
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.
Branson says after spending a couple of days learning to kitesurf, Obama bested the billionaire in a watersport 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.
