What is Flyboard?
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. 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 accomplish 3D flight.
The Flyboard has its own buoyancy and therefore floats on the water allowing the rider to relax safely in the water during breaks, or before and after take-off. To review, 3D flight means you can fly over the water, under the water, and have complete freedom to fly freestyle without the risk of getting hurt.
Flyboarding is much softer than wakeboarding, tubing or other watersports. You get the most fun possible without the high speed tumbles. Considering the many safety features, research and instructor training put into Flyboarding, we can assure you that the Flyboard is very safe and easy to use
As quoted by the inventor and developer, Franky Zapata: “The Flyboard encompasses all my passions; the jetski, ski, snowboard and acrobatic dives.”
