Obama Kitesurfing Becomes Internet Sensation

To celebrate that he no longer has to deal with global crises or running America, former President Barack Obama went for a vacation in the Caribbean with Michelle. And yesterday, pictures and videos of him kitesurfing with Virgin Atlantic founder Richard Branson popped up. Branson said Obama needed two days of practice before he could stand up on the board, but after he got the hang of it, he beat Branson in a race.

Obama looked happy and carefree, and of course, photos of the surfing ex-president quickly became meme-worthy.
