Here are some words to describe our first FlyBoard experience. Exciting, fun, exhilarating, weightless, powerful, amazing, awesome, unbelievable, cool, entertaining…..
The learning process on the FlyBoard was faster than expected and our instructor Brandon said that we progressed faster than anybody he has ever taught. After a few pointers such as straighten your legs and position your body vertical in the water, we seemed to just rise up out of the water once the instructor applied the throttle. The balance seemed natural, not something clumsy to learn. We really didn’t even need to think about balancing, our body just did it. In a minute or so it became really easy to just hover in one spot. Our instructor Brandon started to give us step by step instruction and had us move around, turning and swaying back and fourth, making big circles almost chasing the jet ski, spinning, and flying backwards. It became a little bit harder once we started to perform those maneuvers, falling into the water was part of the fun. The flotation in the life preserver and in the FlyBoard was plenty to keep us on top of the water so there was no thought of having to stay above water, we just floated. The second FlyBoard Session was even better! Higher, faster, more aggressive! We hated to have it end.
The FlyBoard must have been really visible in the air because fishermen rode over in their boats from a mile away to see what “that thing” was. They were amazed and took pictures, video, and asked lots of questions.
Here is a quote from a gentleman that drove 6 hours to demo the FlyBoard, minutes after he demoed the FlyBoard, he left for his 6 hour drive home. He said “Wow! That 20 minute FlyBoard Session was well worth every minute of my 12 drive.”! He ended up purchasing a Flyboard for his rental program in Florida.
