A Flyboard is a type of hover board attached to a personal water craft (PWC) / Jetski, which supplies propulsion to drive the Flyboard through air and water to perform a sport known as flyboarding.A Flyboard rider stands on a board connected by a long hose attached to a watercraft. Water is forced under pressure to a pair of boots with jet nozzles underneath which provide lift for the rider to fly up to 20m (65ft) in the air, perform aerial tricks or to dive headlong through the water.
How it works
The Flyboard is a bolt-on device that is attached to a personal watercraft (PWC). It is designed so that the PWC follows behind the rider’s trail, allowing the rider multiple degrees of freedom, even allowing the rider to go underwater if they desire. The pilot on the Flyboard is secured in by bindings similar to a wakeboard and the rider is propelled from water jets below the device. The Flyboard is buoyant for safety, which also allows the rider to rest in the water between rides if the rider happens to get fatigued.
