Imagine the rush of being able to burst out of the water and fly 45 feet (14 meters) into the air!

The Flyboard attaches to any personal watercraft and the main thrust comes from your feet, so it feels like Iron man! The Flyboard is very intuitive: similar to learning to ride a bike, water ski, surf, skate, or any activity that requires a little balance. You need about 5 to 20 minutes to learn the basics. In about 3 hours of training, you'll be able to master the maneuvers and fully understand the operation of the Flyboard. We have instructors on staff that will teach you what you need and have you Flyboarding in minutes! During the lesson, you will learn proper steering controls, floating positions, low taxi, high taxi, free flight, and of course landing. Most people are up and flying in a few short minutes.
