Flyboarding: Futuristic Fun in the Sun
Flyboarding is a dramatic new way to experience the water. Follow Groupon’s primer on the sport to learn how it works.
The brainchild of French jet-ski champion Franky Zapata, the Flyboard harnesses powerful jets of water to launch wearers as high as 30 feet in the air above the water’s surface. On the top of the board are two boots for your feet to slip into, while the bottom holds two jets that supply the bulk of the propulsion. Two less-powerful handheld jets help stabilize your flight and perform turns, flips, and dives midair—think of all four of them acting as sturdy but bendy stilts much like those used by giraffes. All Flyboards must be connected to a personal watercraft such as a jet ski via a hose, which supplies the water and horsepower. The contraption emits 1,000 gallons of water each minute and can generate about 400 pounds of lift.
The Next Extreme Sport?
Flyboarding first emerged in 2011, and the dazzling moves the machine enables have already captured the imagination of numerous aquatic acrobats: backflips, dolphin dives, and inverted spins are all popular. There have now been two Flyboarding World Championships, the first of which attracted 50 competitors from 21 countries to Qatar in 2012.
