Flyboarding

What is it like to fly like Iron-Man?  Try Flyboarding.  We did.

While in Port Louis, MJ and I tried flyboarding for a half an hour each.

The flyboard attaches to the output of a jetski via 3″ firehose.  The full propulsion from the jetski lifts you out of the water by your feet.

It took MJ about 10min to get the feel for the balance and get out of the water.  It was closer to 15min for me to get my balance.  At the highest point we were about 10′ out of the water.  The instructor controlled our height with the jetski throttle.  I really wouldn’t have wanted to go higher until my balance becomes really really good.  It is not that you simply fall 10′ when you lose your balance, the jet boots on your feet drive you in to water.
