Flyboarding is an exciting new water sport creating waves around the world … all the way to the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia. Powered by water alone, a flyer can soar 15 metres into the air with feet strapped to a flyboard that is itself joined by an umbilical cord to a personal watercraft (Jetski).
Sound like fun? It is, and you should tick this exhilarating challenge off your bucket list! Flyboarding is easy to learn and suitable for people of all ages. A certified instructor guides you through a short training session, and the excitement builds as you are strapped to the flyboard and the jets turn on. A few whoops and wobbles and you suddenly rise majestically out of the water, like a superhero earning his wings. Welcome to flyboarding!
Flyboarding is currently offered in two locations in British Columbia; On Okanagan Lake (Kelowna) and Osoyoos Lake (Osoyoos) in the Okanagan Valley.
