Flyboarding is a fun water sport where you can incorporate all sorts of tricks. Depending on your willingness to learn and having a good instructor, you might be able to pick up a few fun moves in just a few sessions. Say, you’ve already mastered the dolphin, the backflip, or the superman – wouldn’t it be nice to look back (and maybe show off to friends)? What better way to do it than posting on your social media! Here, we’ll show you a few mid-air poses to up your Instagram game!
This first one is a walk in the park. To feel like everyone’s favorite superhero, stand as straight as you can and puff your chest out. Then, place your arms on your sides, palms parallel to the ground as Tony does in-flight and voila, you’re ironman! Another variation to this pose is done by flexing an arm in front of you to mimic his fight stance. Two-in-one!

Now this one requires a bit more skill. To effectively pose like a skateboarder, lean your body sideways at an angle and position your legs as if you’re walking down the stairs sideways. Then, spread your hands sideward just as you would when trying to find your balance. This would take more getting used to, but there’s certainly nothing wrong with enjoying a few flyboarding sessions to get your tricks on point.
This you can do with a partner and it’s fairly easy! To copy one of the most iconic scenes in the history of film, just stand behind a partner and hold them at the waist. Your partner should then extend their arm sideways and you’re pretty much done! If you’re on two boards, just be sure to keep a safe distance between each other to avoid flyboard collision. Capture that picture-perfect moment while hovering safely over water. If only Jack and Rose could do the same…
Doing this pose is pretty straight-forward. Carry your partner like you would a bride on a honeymoon and you’re good to go. You can definitely amp up this pose with fun costumes such as a mermaid’s tail for that flyboarder-in-shining armor vibe.
This last one requires the most skill and a bit of timing. Once you’ve mastered holding your balance on the board, try going stick straight and as parallel to the water as possible and extend an arm with the fist closed like this iconic action hero. Remind your photographer to be quick in shooting you and to set the camera on burst so you can have a cool stop-motion video for your reels.
Finding your balance on a flyboard can take a bit of time but with eagerness to learn, good instructors, and top-tier equipment, you’ll be a pro in no time! Strike these poses and share them on your gram to show your followers the cool, new tricks you have learned. But definitely save your first-time-fails for a funny blooper reel!
