ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- The world is now aware that immediately after leaving office on January 20, 2017 after eight years, former United States of America President Barack H. Obama (D) and wife Mrs Michelle L. Obama's first foreign trip was to the British Virgin Islands (BVI) for a 10-day vacation.

The popular first couple stayed on the exclusive private Moskito Island owned by BVIslander Billionaire Sir Richard C. N. Branson from January 23, 2017 to February 2, 2017.

While in the BVI the former President spent a day Kitesurfing with his host Mr Branson in the BVI waters. The YouTube video released today February 7, 2017 by Mr Branson's Group of Companies saw a friendly Kitesurfing competition with the competitive Messers Obama and Branson.

BVI in the spotlight again; This time positive

The YouTube video has blown up on social network. It shows the two men in some dare-devil activities and many regional and international news organisations have played it all day, further promoting the waters of the BVI and the continued public fascination with the Obamas.

Before the former President and wife Michelle departed on February 2, 2017 from the Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport, on Beef Island, for Washington D.C., a story first broken by our newsroom, the couple had a photo opportunity with the unelected Governor John S. Duncan OBE and his wife Mrs Duncan and the Premier Dr The Honourable D. Orlando Smith (AL) and his wife Lorna G. Smith OBE.

      Don't worry, the Muslim was getting ready to drop a big left hook on him. He's lucky one of Branson's friends (Sharks) didn't get him while he was in the water.....

        Branson is saying "You promised everything and delivered nothing. You were the worst President ever."
        Obama is trying to cover his ears so that he can't hear what Branson is saying.

      I question the same thing. Bronson planning his next move. You can't trust those woodslaves. They do nothing for nothing and they will end your life when that evil streak rises up in them. Friends? Watch with one eye open. Who was taking this picture?
