Travel Video of the Week: Richard Branson’s (Latest) Kitesurfing Challenge


I’m fortunate to have met Sir Richard Branson multiple times, including once when he toured me around his incredible Necker Island for my Hot Spots 2012 Travel Channel show. On Necker, I learned very quickly that Richard has a love of kiteboarding and beautiful women. In his kite shed (he has one) there was a framed photo of him kite surfing with a naked model on his back. Well, I guess that wasn’t cool enough for Sir Richard as this past week he just set a Guinness World Record by kitesurfing with three girls (clothed)—including champion kitesurfer Susi Mai—on his back.
