Barack Obama enjoys some time out.


In case you were wondering what does a former president do after their life in office? Well look no further than the former American president, Barack Obama, who has been living his best life to date.

The former statesmen, has been enjoying his downtime by trying out watersports on a private Island in the Caribbean owned by billionaire entrepreneur Richard Branson.  

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.

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


"Being the former president of America, there was lots of security around, but Barack was able to really relax and get into it," the British billionaire wrote.

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.

Immediately after leaving the White House on January 20, the Obamas flew to California for a short holiday in Palm Springs.

In his final press conference as president, Obama said he was looking forward to spending time with his family after leaving office.

"I want to do some writing, I want to be quiet a little bit and not hear myself talk so much. I want to spend precious time with my girls," he said.
