– These photos show ex-president Barack Obama kite surfing with billionaire Richard Branson on his private island in the Caribbean

– The billionaire tycoon wrote on social media that Obama told him that the last time he surfed before he was President, eight years ago

– The Obamas have already returned from their long deserved vacation and are currently staying in Washington DC

Ex-president Barack Obama and his wife are currently taking a long deserved vacation on Richard Branson’s private island in the Caribbean.

New photos and videos show the Obamas having the time of their lives riding horses and going kite surfing around the island.

The host, Richard Branson, said that it was an honor for him to have the Obamas stay at his private island. He wrote in a blog post: “One of the first stories Barack told me when he and Michelle arrived on Moskito Island was how, just before he became President, he had been surfing on a dangerous break in Hawaii.”

He added: “When he came in from an exhilarating session, the new head of his security team turned to him and said: “This will be the last time you surf for eight years.” For the next eight years he didn’t have the chance to surf, enjoy watersports or do many of the things he loved. So it was tremendous to offer him the chance to learn to kitesurf.”

The Obamas have already returned to Washington DC where they are currently staying until their youngest daughter, Sasha, will finish school.
