Learning to use the Flyboard® is much easier than you might think. Many people ask us how hard is it to fly. When given proper instruction and the student follows those instructions, almost anyone will start flying the Flyboard® during their first 5 minutes in the water. After only 10-15 minutes in the water you could easily have basic control of your movements over the water. Everyone will have an amazing experience and have a lot of fun during their first ride learning to flyboard. It only gets better after each ride. Most people have enjoyed it so much that they have found that they are twice as good on their second ride.
How Does It Work?
The 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. The thrust from the PWC is routed through a long hose up to the Flyboard® where a rider can divert and control that thrust to create any type of movement he/she desires. 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 go anywhere, even underwater. The Flyboard® has its own buoyancy and therefore floats on the water allowing the rider more safety and easier time in the water prior to start. Be sure to watch all of our videos on our homepage to see how this really works. To sum this up, you can fly over the water, under the water, and have complete freedom to fly freestyle with a little instruction.
