Get Your Adrenaline Flowing With Flyboarding Flyboarding fever is spreading like wild bushfire and lots of people all around the world have been catching it. A flyboard is a small jetpack device which is connected via a strong hose to a personal watercraft which provides sufficient propulsion to lift a person high into the air or to power him through the water. Whether you want to fly like superman or submerge into the water like a dolphin, the experience is like no other. It’s easy! Flyboarding is quite easy to learn as anyone can get flying and performing basic manoeuvres within 20 minutes.
Once you stand on the board and the personal watercraft that is the engine’ begins to power you through the air, you feel like a bird and soon you realize that you are actually flying! In just one session, you will be able to rise high above the water with relative ease while the braver ones can manage to dive into the water and then spring out like a dolphin. It is common for a person to feel extremely nervous just before the start. Then almost immediately, one is rocketed upwards at great speed as jets of water rush below the feet. The challenge is to maintain the balance at such heights but the skill will come naturally after a few jumps. Most beginners are lost in the moment of savouring the experience in the air that they forget to concentrate on the balance. They end up tumbling down and splashing into the water below but the response almost all the time is “Let’s do it again!”
What else should you know? Always follow the rules so as to stay safe. The temptation is to attempt audacious flips and manoeuvres performed by others because they appear to be straightforward. Practice first so as to grow in confidence. Avoid flyboarding under the influence of anything such as drugs or alcohol. Helmets should be worn at all times even if they feel bothersome. You can sustain injuries if you crash into the water from several feet high. Instructors also advise to keep a safe distance from the watercraft before the jets are started. There is a risk of a person falling into the watercraft and getting hurt or hurting the pilot if they stay too close.
Finally strive to maintain your balance by standing straight. Leaning backwards will cause you to tumble into the water. You shouldn’t give up when you crash after a few attempts because it can be frustrating for any beginner. Once you get it right, the experience is simply amazing!
