I bet that made the locals happy especially if the Secret Service had to close down that part of the lake for a "No kite surfing zone" while Obama was "doing his thing".  ;)  ;D

Kiting with Branson, he would have been on Necker Island, Branson's private island.

Love this. Anyone who does that job deserves some fun. Ford golfed his butt off, talk about the secret service bumming some folks out lol. "Sorry sir, you may not play through." But Nixon had the prime retirement spot and didn't even surf it!

And yes, "the locals" consist of Branson's friends only. Baller status. Who needs a bowling alley?  Buy the island.

The cool thing about kites.. for me at least, you never got to think about anything else - otherwise you'd get SPANKED. KS will give his brain a break. (his kite looked a little small, bar too long and flying a little low ...maybe)

I know the young lady between his legs and a friend was teaching Branson to foil. Some people get to have all the fun.

Well somebody has to post the famous pic of Branson kiteboarding, so I will.
The question is, does Obama get to play that also?

It takes a quiver to do that.

You've gone from having the coolest president of all time (and the coolest First Lady) to the most uncool (of both) of all time in one fell swoop.
