The trip wasn’t just all about relaxing though. Branson wanted to teach Obama how to kitesurf, while Branson dabbled in the foilboard. So the challenge was made: Could Barack Obama learn to kitesurf before Richard Branson learned to foilboard?
Kitesurfing, for the uninitiated, is a surface water sport where riders stand on a board and are harnessed to a large kite, moving around the water via the power of the wind. Foilboarding is a tad different as there is a hydrofoil that extends below the board into the water allowing the rider on the board to leave the surface of the water at some speeds.
