This is the age of faster, stronger, and higher. And this applies to just about everything from trains to buildings and technology to entertainment. And what happens when we take on the killer combination of technology and entertainment? Why we jump high and reach for the stars. Or at least try to.
Flyboarding is the latest kid on the block of watersports. It requires standing on a hydroflighting device which is driven into the air due to propulsion by a long hose connected to a jetski or other watercraft.
For the fact that Flyboarding paints a seriously impressive picture, the process itself is quite simple if proper instructions are followed. First off, you need to swim a little distance from the jet ski. Once you do that, stand up while in the water with the Flyboard directly under your feet, keeping your legs locked. As you swoosh up, breathe calmly. Once in the air, point your toes down to move forward and up to move backward. If you lift your left knee, you’ll move right and vice versa. The only factor you can’t control is how high you go because your instructor will be in charge of that.
Now that we have your attention, let’s give you a quick walkthrough on what to do and what to avoid during what is sure sounding like the experience of a lifetime.
If you’ve been watching people flying on the water attached to futuristic jet packs and wondering what it’s all about. Well, it’s all about flyboarding.
Granted standing on something which is roughly the size of a skateboard with two boot attachments for your feet and what looks to be not the most secure looking contraption to be thrusted almost 60-feet high is a tad bit scary. But let your fears rest, for Ride in Dubai will make sure that these “jet packs” come as a package deal with their state-of-the-art equipment and highly trained instructors.
