Flyboarding is the hottest new water sport taking the world by storm! It is truly unique in a category of its own, an adventure that cannot compare with any other sport out there. A Flyboard is powered by the water propulsion of a personal watercraft (jetski). The rider on the board is attached to the watercraft by an 80-foot hose that allows the flier the freedom to fly high or dive effortlessly into the water.
As soon as you are strapped into the board and the jets are turned on, you become overwhelmed by excitement. A few minutes of fumbling in the water, trying to find your feet, and then all of a sudden you rise out of the water, like your own brand of super hero taking flight for the first time. You are now flyboarding!
Regardless of how long your first hover lasts, what does really last is the broad smile that quickly grows across your face. Once you have the hang of it, and are literally soaring above the water, it gives you a new perspective on things, and gives you a feeling that you never want to end.
Flyboarding is easy to learn, and suitable for people of any age and ability, whether you have prior sports experience or not. Your certified instructor will guide you through the experience with ease. The average training time before you’re flying is 5 minutes, so you’ll be grinning from ear to ear in no time at all … and for days thereafter!
Flyboarding is currently offered in two locations in British Columbia; Okanagan Lake (Kelowna) and Osoyoos Lake (Osoyoos). Be sure to check this exhilarating challenge off your bucket list, and boast to your friends and family with some candid action photos.
