The sport of flying is one, which causes a course of excitement in most of us. The sheer thrill of flying upwards into the air is indescribable. The air force that hits the face and the adrenaline pumped in the process is an exhilarating experience.
Flyboarding is a unique sport because it provides you with the rush of flying upwards from a water body. This aquatic sport is packed, with the relaxing experience of water and the sheer thrill of flying. It is one sport that needs to be experienced if you are an adventure enthusiast.
What Is A Flyboard
Franky Zapata officially invented the flyboard device. It is a personal jet pack, which is attached to the feet. This jetpack is also attached to a hose, which is joined to personal watercraft (PWC). The highly pressurized water from the PWC is redirected through the foot hose; this then splits into the two nozzles beneath the feet, which propels you up into the air.
The device also consists of a detachable rotating main bearing; this is situated beneath the flyboard and allows it to spin freely.
Controls Of The Device
The throttle of the flyboard is either controlled by the instructor or otherwise the flier. For safety precautions, the instructor usually controls the throttle, even after sufficient training is delivered.
All novices have to undergo mandatory training lessons initially, after which they can explore the sport themselves. The speed of the device is still controlled by the instructor from the PWC; however, you will be able to control the navigation. Having the control of navigation enables you to move towards different directions to your liking.
Advanced fliers can control the throttle and ignition of the device from the handholds on the flyboard. The flyboard is an exciting device as you can perform several tricks with it. Make sure to acquire sufficient practice and expertise with the device before trying out the tricks.
The Art Of Flying
Although the skill of flyboarding appears to be scary and tough to acquire, that is not the case. A skilled trainer will have you flying in no time! The goal is to strictly follow instructions and guidelines. Those who can balance themselves and the device are at an advantage.
The skill of flyboarding can be easily gained if you have balancing skills. Even if you are not great at balancing, constant practice will improve your flyboarding and balancing skills. Most people get out of the water and start flying within the first five minutes; they usually have control over their movements within the first twenty minutes. Keeping your legs steady and the device centered will make it easy for you to fly upwards. With practice, you will be able to move in different directions while performing all the tricks you have always wanted to.
Flyboarding can be a tricky sport at times. All the safety measures have to be carefully understood to ensure an exciting experience.
