President Obama is Happy to Be Out of Office

It has only been 18 days since President Obama has left the Oval Office and he is already having the time of his life.

President Obama took a trip to Richard Branson’s private island (Moskito Island) along with his wife, Michelle last week. Things were left to the imagination as we watched President Obama arrive on the island while rocking his hat backwards…

Well, you no longer need to imagine what President Obama is up to. Today, Richard Branson shared his experience vacationing with the 44th president of the United States.

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. 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. So it was tremendous to offer him the chance to learn to kitesurf.

—Richard Branson,

And our former president enjoyed…

It may be safe to say that we have never seen President Obama smile so hard. There is no doubt that he is happy to be an “average citizen” again. Catch more of his post-presidency vacation here:
