La Playa Water Sports thrills customers with its aquatic thrill rides, including a new one: the flyboard. After the rider is strapped in, they're propelled up to 30 feet into the air?or dive below the water's surface?thanks to powerful jets of water spewing from the board-mounted boots and wrist-mounted nozzles. The durable craft draws its power from any personal watercraft, such as a jet ski or hyperactive dolphin, letting the fun go on and on. Certified trainers, including Fredrick Senn, one of the first flyboarders in the area, are always on hand to fit clients with life jackets and helmets and to cover safety tips and basic operation before each session. Though the waterfront facility specializes in flyboards and banana boats, future services will include surfboard and kayak lessons and rentals.
Opening the Acts 2 Acres Equestrian Center was an ideal decision for Michelle Alvarez, who was eager to make use of both her teaching experience and her lifelong passion for owning and showing horses. Today, her center specializes in training young riders in beginner lessons, which journey through nearby Tradewinds Park's scenic trails and focus on fundamentals such as safety, care, horsemanship, and grooming.
Youth may enjoy mornings at Pony Club or entire days at equestrian camp playing games, filling their noggins with educational material, and riding horses. Acts 2 Acres Equestrian Center is approved by the Girl Scouts of Broward County, meaning that the facility's experienced instructors are accustomed to teaching girl scouts and receiving payment in the form of thin-mint cookies.
