  • Jump Right In Flyboarding
    Somewhere along the line, a watersports enthusiast went a little crazy, in the best way possible. The result was the Flyboard, a single-person apparatus that combines the movements of a flying superhero with the underwater mobility of a dolphin. Jump Right In Flyboarding, a purveyor of such aqueous adventures, straps its patrons into one of their propulsion systems to levitate above water on columns of pressurized water and dive underwater upon command, making for an exhilarating ride. During instruction sessions that last about 10 minutes, aspiring aquanauts learn to control the water-spewing nozzles. Two nozzles attach to the wearer's feet and supply 90% of the propulsion, while two more nozzles attach to the hands and help with stabilization in much the same manner that poles help with skiing or machetes help with sprinting.

  • Jump Right In Flyboarding
    The water's calm. Almost too calm. Nearly imperceptible ripples begin to form, soon evolving into bubbles reminiscent of a hair-raising monster movie. A figure erupts upwards, the water peeling away in sheets to reveal not a creature of the deep, but a person with their feet strapped into a strange device. The machine, called a Flyboard, projects two jets of water out from right beneath the rider's feet, causing her to soar through the air. This propulsion lends itself to acrobatics, helping riders perform tricks such as spins, flips, and dolphin-like dives from the air to the water and back again. The owners of Jump Right In Flyboarding say such tricks are not hard to master. They started their company to give everyone a taste of this hard-to-describe, impossible-to-imitate water sport, and today they specialize in the sales, service, instruction and rentals of FlyBoards. With locations in Sebastian, Cocoa Beach, and Key Largo, they are some of the coast's most experienced operators.

  • Space Coast Brews Cruise
    After Space Coast Brews Cruise founder Don Roberts moved to Brevard County from his native Pittsburgh in 1992, he searched in vain to find a good source of local craft beer. So he did the only logical thing: he started making his own. As years went by, the Space Coast region began to develop plenty of small-batch breweries and local craft beer bars of its own, which gave Roberts another idea?the Space Coast Brews Cruise. Safely ferried by chauffered van, guests visit gastropubs, breweries, and bars for pairings and beer tastings, sampling delicious glasses of craft Belgian, porter, lager, and pale ale with friends and family. Space Coast Brews Cruise encourages guests to please drink responsibly and designate a sober driver. Space Coast Brews Cruise does not encourage or condone driving under the influence of alcohol.
