How Flyboarding Works

Jet Ski racing world champion Franky Zapata was looking for a new kind of relaxation and leisure activity that he could do besides his dangerous sport. So he fiddled with a kind of jet-powered snowboard or wakeboard. It was not supposed to be strapped on the back but under the feet. It was in 2011, when Franky introduced the world to the flyboard.

Your feet are strapped to a board. You stand upright and this way you will also rise in the air. There are nozzles under the board. The flyboard is connected to a JetSki through a hose. If you were alone, you needed a hand control to regulate the performance of the JetSki. But you are trying the Flyboard on Gran Canaria for the first time. This is why one of the guides controls the thrust services. The guide sitting on the JetSki accelerates and you notice how the power jets under your feet start puhshing you upwards. Now it is important that you keep the balance and your body tension. The guide will give you some advice and after a few minutes you will manage to float on the beam.


What to Consider With the Flyboard

You should be at least 16 years old and have average fitness. A bit more than a couch potato, but certainly not as much as a tri-athlete either. Previous experience is not necessary. However, you should always follow the instructions of the guides; otherwise there is a risk of injury. You will receive a helmet and a life jacket from the organizer. And if necessary, you can also borrow a wetsuit.
