Since he was old enough to walk, Joshua Bruner also ran, jumped, and tumbled, testing how far and fast his body could take him. His energetic toddlings grew into a life-long passion for extreme sports, the most recent iteration of which he found in flyboarding.
To use a flyboard, a rider straps his or her feet down to the device, then activates a jet-ski-like intake engine. The engine scoops up water and feeds it to the board through a hose. The board spits a compressed stream back at the water's surface with extreme force, enough to lift a full-grown human up to 30 feet in the air. The rider gains the ability to soar like a seagull or dive like a porpoise, allowing a freedom of movement that really appeals to Joshua. He helps others discover that same freedom though lessons and play time in the water using his flyboard.
