•HOW IT WORKS – DEFINITION OF THE FLYBOARD
A Flyboard is a type of water jetpack attached to a personal watercraft (PWC) that supplies propulsion to drive the Flyboard through air and water to perform a sport known as “flyboarding”. This new sport has already its own championship. It took place in Doha, Qatar in 2014.
Zapata Racing created Flyboarding in 2011. Frank Zapata, the originator, began to take his water sport affinity to the next level by competeting professionally in Jet Ski racing at the age of 17. From there Frank Zapata has gone on to create some of the highest power Jet Ski’s we see today and has branched his interests in water sports out to areas such as flyboarding. A Flyboard rider stands on a board connected by a long hose to a Jet Ski. Water is forced under pressure to a pair of boots with jet nozzles underneath which provide thrust for the rider to fly up to 30 feets in the air or to dive headlong through the water like a dolphin. The Flyboard is one of the most popular flying toys in the world. Always at the cutting edge of technology, Aqua-Jet provides the newest and highly efficient flyboards in the world. Indeed, Aqua-Jet uses the latest flying machines available in the market.
Here you can see exactly how the Flyboard works.
In the four years that Flyboarding has existed there has not been one account of any serious injury. This is partially due to the level of safety precautions taken in every Flyboarding experience and also the use of helmets and life jackets. The Flyboard itself does also absorb a lot of the fall if someone were to lose control. All this makes Flyboarding a safe sport as long as safety precautions are followed.
Moreover, you mustn’t be a strong swimmer to try our Flyboard. We do encourage our riders to be able to at least swim as this may give them more confidence in the water however a life jacket will be used at all times so even non swimmers would be welcome.
•FEEL LIKE A DOLPHIN
Ever dreamed of zooming through the water and leaping in the air like a dolphin? Well now you can thanks to an Iron Man-style jetpack: the Flyboard.
