Richard Branson: a passionate kiteboarder

Sir Richard Branson, CEO of the Virgin Group, talked with "The Mail on Sunday" about his kiteboarding skills and explained what happened when he decided to carry model Denni Parkinson naked, clinging to his back.

"What can you say if you are asked to pose with a naked lady? I only wish I had eyes in the back of my head," the businessman told the newspaper.

It seems the idea came from photographer Stephane Gautronneau.

He was shooting Branson on his private Caribbean island, Necker, and thought of asking girlfriend Denni Parkinson to pose with the Virgin mogul in an unorthodox way.

The 5'9'' model and the exotic entrepreneur went kiteboarding while Richard's children, Sam and Holly, witnessed the ride from the beach.
