Obama enjoys watersports on luxury Caribbean island

MNA Editorial Desk: Barack Obama has been enjoying life after the US presidency by trying out watersports on a luxury Caribbean island owned by Richard Branson, the Virgin chief said on Tuesday.

The former US leader and his wife Michelle Obama visited Moskito Island, in the British Virgin Islands, after handing over the presidency to his successor Donald Trump.

CaribbeanPhotos published on Branson’s blog show Obama smiling on board a speed boat and wearing a helmet and goggles as he tries out kitesurfing.

Obama had been stopped by his security detail from doing watersports during his presidency, Branson said.

Two days were dedicated to teaching Obama how to kitesurf from the beach, ‘as if going back to being a child again’ according to his host.

CaribbeanBranson bought Moskito Island in 2007 and has since built a luxury estate which can host 22 guests, according to the resort’s website.
