$110 for an Intro to Flyboarding Lesson ($299 Value)
During a 15-minute training session, instructors introduce pupils to the setup, techniques, and safe practices of the Flyboard. Afterward, they bind feet into the equipment and help students stand up and ride for 30 minutes.
French jet-skiing champion Frank Zapata had been developing jet skis for years before he had the idea for a next-level watersports device: the Flyboard. The invention "lets you fly, Iron Man style, up to 9 meters in the air,” wrote the Namibian Sun, “or leap headfirst through the waves like a human dolphin."
At Flyboarding Sarasota, instructors acquaint patrons with Zapata’s techniques and safety practices before strapping them into the equipment. Water climbs through tubes attached to the Flyboard’s skis, forcefully propelling bodies into the air and across the water. With practice, boarders can learn to control direction or stabilize in midair, towering over cloud-white columns of thundering water.
