What do you do after you’ve serve for eight years as the leader of the free world, faced down dangerous enemies, put together a signature health care policy, got a Wall Street reform bill passed, instituted a global climate change policy and still managed to be a husband and dad?

What else? You go kite surfing!

President Obama, in the first few weeks he’s had off since before the 2008 election, took some well-deserved R&R in the British Virgin Islands with who else but Virgin Group founder, billionaire Richard Branson. The two challenged each other in a friendly watersports standoff: Could @POTUS44 learn kite surfing before Branson learned foilboard surfing? Branson tells the story in a series of photos on Virgin.com.
