What is a fly board?
Fly boarding is a brand of hydro flighting device that gives
propulsion to drive the fly board into the air to perform a well known sport
known as hydro flying.
The fly board is device that is attached to a personal water
craft (PWC) or jet ski. The fly board is designed is such a way that the jet
ski follows behind the rider giving them various angles of freedom, this also
includes going underwater. The rider’s legs are strapped to the fly board
similar to a wakeboard and the rider is pushed upwards from water that is
pumped from the jet ski through pipes.The power to the fly board is controlled by a throttle on the Jet ski.
Fly boarding requires two people, one on the jet ski throttle which regulates
the power to the fly board and the second on the fly board itself. We recommend
using a helmet and life jacket to protect the rider’s head and ears from impact
with the water.
