TESTIMONIALS

Our Customers Love FlyBoarding

The instructor, Neil, is very patient and encouraging. He really works to help you feel comfortable and confident from the dock, to the water, to the air! I'm hooked!

WHAT IS

FLYBOARDING?

Technically, the FlyBoard is an accessory that attaches to the jet discharge of a Personal Watercraft (PWC) and uses the jet discharge of the PWC to propel the device through the air and water…kinda boring. Now realistically speaking, the FlyBoard is 1,000 gallons of water per minute, at over 60 PSI and almost 400 pounds lift of pure adrenaline pumping, heart pounding, eye catching fun! And no one brings the level of FlyBoard flight excitement quite like we do here at Gorge FlyBoard!

The brainchild of French Jet Ski Racer Franky Zapata, the FlyBoard was first developed in 2011 and made its way to the United States in the Spring of 2012. Since then, it has taken the watersports world by storm.

The FlyBoard is connected to the PWC by a 55-foot long, 4” diameter fire hose that can propel the pilot over 35 feet above or below the surface of the water. Although some people might refer to it as a water jetpack, the Pilot is actually secured onto the board with Wakeboard Style Bindings and is being propelled from below, not from your back as the term jetpack might imply. While the Pilot of the FlyBoard is in complete control of the navigation, the Operator on the PWC is in control of the throttle. This is truly an experience that you don’t want to miss and the best part is that most any able-bodied person can do it and the more you fly the better you become!

How does a

FLYBOARD WORK?

The Personal Watercraft (PWC) provides all of the propulsion for the FlyBoard. Using a set of unique and patented adapters, inventor Franky Zapata of “Zapata Racing”, turned an ordinary watercraft into a water sports sensation.

All of the thrust developed from the PWC is routed through the hose, so the PWC just follows behind the rider in trail giving you the freedom to accomplish 3D flight.

The FlyBoard has its own buoyancy and therefore floats on the water allowing the rider to relax safely in the water during breaks, or before and after take-off. To review, 3D flight means you can fly over the water, under the water, and have complete freedom to fly freestyle without the risk of getting hurt.

FlyBoarding is much softer than wakeboarding, tubing or other watersports. You get the most fun possible without the high speed tumbles. Considering the many safety features, research and instructor training put into FlyBoarding, we can assure you that the FlyBoard is very safe and easy to use.

Is it

EASY TO LEARN?

Learning to operate the FlyBoard is much easier and intuitive than you might think. Once you have applied the instructions given to you, anyone can FlyBoard within the first 5-10 minutes in the water.

After only 15-20 minutes you should accomplish full basic control of your movement. A certified FlyBoard instructor sits on the PWC at all time and controls your available propulsion allowing you to gradually build your skill set and confidence.

Some people will have a natural ability and a faster learning curve, allowing them to try a few stunts on their first flight. Find your balance and you will be flying like Ironman or swimming through the water like a dolphin.

One thing is for sure, you’ll love it and everyone agrees: it’s highly addictive.  BOOK YOUR FLIGHT TODAY!
