Kiteboard Launch Atop Richard Branson’s Island

Kiteboarder Nick Jacobsen recently launched from a balcony high atop Sir Richard Branson’s private Necker Island mansion.

Branson, who is no stranger to kite boarding, introduces the video.

“We’re on top of Necker … where a lot of mischievous things go on. We have a jacuzzi. I’ve done a lot of foolish things myself in my life. I’m not one to tell you what to do and what not to do.”

And then, with little delay, Jacobsen is in the air and on his way to a water landing. Not a bad way to spend an afternoon.
