Flyboarding is the world's newest cutting edge, adrenaline fuelled activity and it is now offered in Melbourne!
Fly like Ironman and cruise through the water like a dolphin in the same motion!
Fly like Ironman and cruise through the water like a dolphin all in the same motion. Your Flyboard has water powered jet thrusters at your feet which will control your flight path.
As intense as Flyboarding looks, it is actually an extremely safe activity. Minutes into your flight you will be comfortable enough to start reaching heights of 10 metres and able to perform figure eights, surface cruises and carve left and right in midair!
Next: the Hoverboard! Finally YOU can lift off like Marty McFly from Back To The Future! The Hoverboard is a cousin of the Flyboard, and allows its pilot to enjoy a unique mix of skateboarding, Flyboard and aerobatics!
The water-propelled device allows people to fly up to 16ft (5 metres) above the surface of the water at speeds of up to 25km/h, as well as perform tricks including somersaults and spins.
You will be fitted with a flotation device and your personal instructor/safety officer is on a jet ski close by controlling the throttle and offering advice and tips throughout.
It was awesome!!
Sessions begin on the 1/2 hour from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM (5:00 PM during winter).
What about the weather?
Sessions go ahead at the sole discretion of the instructor.
What is Flyboard?
The Flyboard is a watersports apparatus which allows propulsion underwater and in the air, it could be compared to a powered wakeboard.
The Flyboard comes complete with the Electronic Management Kit which allows operation of the Jet Ski throttle, kill switch and starter from the Flyboard. This method allows for better flight precision and its intuitive use provides the Flyboard Operator exceptional sensations.
Usually after about 20 minutes you can already move underwater like a dolphin and challenge the gravity like superman!
Your instructor/safety officer is on a jet ski close to you and can override or assist control of the Flyboard if required.
What is Hoverboard?
The Hoverboard is attached to a jet ski by a long hose that is pumped full of water with enough force to allow the rider to fly through the air at great heights and speeds of up to 25 km/h.
The rider holds a throttle that is connected to the jet ski engine, allowing for full control of the pressure and letting them move up, down and linear.
