Lake Lanier is no stranger to aquatic adventurers: boats and jet skis regularly zoom across its surface. But it's never seen something quite like the Flyboard, a jetpack-esque contraption that uses sprays of water to propel its rider through the lake and up to heights of 40 feet. The central board sends two massive jets of H20 wherever its commander’s feet desire, while two arm-bound stabilizers enable the rider to perform twists and backflips, as well as enact revenge on any duck who dares steal their hot-dog. Instructor Bryan Keenan employs the skills that he displayed at the 2012 World Cup for Flyboarding to get his students ready for flight.
