Surely tricks are the coolest things about flyboards- just like with jetskiing. Thankfully the beginner-friendly nature of flyboard also makes it rather easy to try a few simple tricks to elevate your first time experience. Just so you don’t miss out, take a look at this handpicked list of flyboard tricks that you can safely try and tackle as a beginner.
As you might have already seen in plenty of flyboarding videos on the internet, this is one of the easiest and also signature flyboarding tricks. Although it might look tough at a glance, it is one of the easiest ones to tackle. Keep your legs straight and dive at a 45-degree angle, and that’s it. When you go underwater, just angle your body upright and then you’re all set to dive again.
Once you have got the hang of a basic dolphin dive, you can extend this trick to something called the “Back Dolphin Dive”, which is also extremely beginner-friendly. To attempt this trick first you need to rise up as high as you possibly can and feel comfortable.
Once you reach the maximum height then dive backwards like you normally do a backflip. As you approach the water, spin your body so the head dives into the water first. Although this may sound a little too basic, it definitely looks spectacular at a distance and is a picturesque trick that you should miss out on.
Even if you’re not able to backflip on land, flyboarding makes it possible on-air. In fact, backflips on a flyboard are much easier to perform than on land. To try this trick rise as high as you possibly can and then backflip by pushing your head downwards and feet upwards. You will have to rotate your body quickly so that you can straighten your feet before hitting the water. Aside from being easy to learn as a beginner, it makes you look really cool, especially in pictures.
This trick is more like a combo that needs good speed and is probably one of the most exciting tricks you can try on your first time flyboarding. To do this you need to do a backflip and then when the hose is up in the air in a triangle shape, you will need to cruise through the triangle to thread the needle. You will have to be a little quick to do this trick so you have enough time to fly through the loop (after the backflip) before it falls into the water.
Who among us didn’t want to be a superman when growing up? If you want to make your childhood fantasies come true then this beginner-friendly flyboarding trick is the one. Called literally “Superman” , to do this trick you have to launch yourself up and out. Start by pushing the flyboard behind you until you come to a horizontal position up in the air. Then gradually you’ll feel like levitating giving you the ability to fly like a superman for a few moments.
Whichever trick you’re hoping to try, just make sure you’re getting the watercraft from a professional flyboard or jet ski rental company. The ability for you to try out tricks properly and enjoy the whole experience solely depends on the proper working conditions and the latest features of the flyboards.
