Barack Obama and his hobby, Paddle surfing.
The 58-year-old Obama enjoys his hobby, paddle surfing, while wearing an $ 84 “shark deterrent band” around his ankle.
Former President Barack Obama enjoying an extended vacation in his home state of Hawaii, he was photographed paddle boarding in the Pacific Ocean.
Though the video shows him tripping and falling off the board multiple times, the former president mostly has a good time.
And for added protection during his departure, Obama also ties an $ 84 “shark deterrent band” from Sharkbanz around his ankle. The rubber band, which can be worn on the wrist or ankle, is intended to “deter predatory shark species” using “technology developed by marine biologists.”
When sharks approach Sharkbanz, they detect the device’s strong electromagnetic field, which provides a sudden sensation that is thousands of times stronger than the signal produced by anything in a shark’s normal food chain. Consequently, the sharks move away from Sharkbanz.
Although Obama is an experienced rowing practitioner, he was not fully on his feet during the entire excursion.
He at one point began to wobble on the board, trying to regain his balance as the water tipped him in different directions. However, he lost the battle, falling backwards into the water and splashing. However, he soon got back up and returned to the board, rowing himself into a kneeling position before getting back to his feet.
Of course, he is not just any tourist, and Mon Secret Service agent in a bulletproof vest moves behind him in a kayak.
