When you’ve served your country impeccably for almost a decade and don’t have a single care in the world! *bows*
President Barack Obama, along with the former First Lady Michelle Obama, took a MUCH NEEDED and WELL DESERVED vacation to the British Virgin Island where billionaire businessman Richard Branson owns a home (well, it’s more like a private island).
And because the former Prez hadn’t surfed or done any water sports in the past eight years that he served as President (because, ya know….he wasn’t allowed), Branson decided to gift Obama with the experience and also make it a friendly competition between the two.
“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,” Branson wrote on social media.”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.”
