How Flyboarding Works

Flyboarding is the newest water sport to hit the extreme sport industry.

The flyboard utilizes the power from a personal water craft (PWC) to push water through the 55′, 6 inch, water hose that goes to the Y splitter on the the bottom of the board on a omnidirectional swivel mount.

What is Flyboard®?

Description
The Flyboard® is the newest extreme sport! It is an accessory that attaches to a PWC (Personal Watercraft) which gives the Flyboard® propulsion through air and water. 90% of the propulsion is routed through the primary nozzle that attaches to the feet of the Flyboard® user. The hand nozzles are used to ensure stabilization. Despite its intuitive use, the Flyboard® is none the less an extreme sports gear to practice with great vigilance.

How Does It Work?
The PWC provides all of the propulsion for the Flyboard®. Using a set of unique and patented adapters, inventor Franky Zapata of Zapata Racing, turned an ordinary watercraft into a Water Sports Sensation. The thrust from the PWC is routed through a long hose up to the Flyboard® where a rider can divert and control that thrust to create any type of movement he/she desires. All of the thrust developed from the PWC is routed through the hose, so the PWC just follows behind the rider in trail giving you the freedom to go anywhere, even underwater. The Flyboard® has its own buoyancy and therefore floats on the water allowing the rider more safety and easier time in the water prior to start. Be sure to watch all of our videos on our homepage to see how this really works. To sum this up, you can fly over the water, under the water, and have complete freedom to fly freestyle without the risk of getting hurt. We can assure you that the Flyboard® is extremely SAFE. We have many options for anyone who would like to buy or try the Flyboard®.

Learning
Learning to operate the Flyboard® is much easier than you might think. Many people ask us how hard is it to fly. When given proper instruction and the student can follow those instructions, almost anyone will start flying the Flyboard® during their first 5 minutes in the water. After only 20 minutes in the water you could easily have basic control of your movements over the water. Some people will have a natural ability and a faster learning curve, but almost anyone will have a lot of fun during their first ride and it only gets better after each ride. Most people have found that they are twice as good on their second ride.
