Learning to fly doesn't have to require a pilot's license. At Rent Flyboards, the team allows visitors to experience the adrenaline rush of rocketing as high as 30 feet into the sky and cruising at speeds up to 18 miles per hour. Powerful jets of water shoot out from beneath the board while a pair of boots keep riders safely fastened in place. All it takes is a subtle lean or tilt to turn the board and handheld nozzles help provide even more stability as riders become accustomed to the thrill of effortlessly hovering at a comfortable level. From these heights, people have the opportunity to see their surroundings from a vantage point normally reserved for birds and fish plucked from the water by hungry birds.
