Barack Obama's kitesurfing adventure

After a long successful but hectic job of US president Barack Obama finally got out of the office and now he's breathing in some fresh air, as he has been spotted kite surfing on British virgin islands.

Now his full focus will be to give as much time as possible to his friends & family.

the former president dove into an aquatic and athletic challenge with his friend, Virgin Group founder and billionaire Richard Branson, while vacationing on the British Virgin Islands with former first lady Michelle Obama.
Talking about Richard Branson, well the guy has been well known for his love,affairs,his glam sham life and most importantly how he became a billionaire is the real deal, the hot topic. I mean literally, people are eager to know his business tips & tricks to get successful.he has made a reputation for himself.however he was not a billionaire by birth.His life journey is not less than a roller coaster ride.people like to know about this self made man and his life more & more through his books and biography.


Now that Obama is free from many Secret Service-imposed restrictions that did not allow him to partake in activities like surfing, Branson offered Obama the chance to learn how to kitesurf.

    But to make things more interesting, Branson took on a challenge of his own.
    "We decided to set up a friendly challenge: Could Barack learn to kitesurf before I learned to foilboard? We agreed to have a final day battle to see who could stay up the longest," Branson wrote in a post on

    Kitesurfing is riding on a surfboard while holding onto a kite and foilboarding is riding a surfboard with a hydrofoil that goes into the water lifts the board above the surface.A game full of rush, power, stamina and energy. 

    In beach destinations its almost everybody's favorite sport.the need for speed, risk element makes the game fun but dangerous.The added risk element is always there unless proper precautions taken.To keep it safe Obama took proper measures and used right equipments, so should you.

    Following a few days of training, the challenge was on and Obama kitesurfed his way to victory.

    "We were neck and neck until the last run on the last day, when I got up on the foilboard and screamed along for over 50 metres, three feet above the water," Branson wrote. "I was feeling very pleased with myself, only to look over and see Barack go 100 metres on his kiteboard ! I had to doff my cap to him and celebrate his victory."

    Whether on screen or off screen, Obama always play in front foot. I don't know about others, by far he's the best president US has ever had.A great president, a dependable friend, a caring husband & most importantly an man with ambitions.
