Learn to flyboard its the newest trend on the water that novice and experts of all ages can try! 

Flyboarding redirects the water pressure normally used to propel your PWC (Jet Ski) in to a hose that is attached to a board where the water pressure is redirected again, this time in a downward direction. The rider stands on the board using balance and the upward pressure produced by the water flow to rise above the water, maneuver and perform arial acrobatics.

Go Fly & Enjoy the Rush!
