Flyboarding

What is this jaw-droppingly awesome new water sport that is all the rage on Oahu? Why, it’s Flyboarding of course! If you’ve ever wondered what it feels like to be Iron Man, this is your chance to see for yourself.

So what is a Flyboard? Well it’s sort of like a water-powered snowboard, except infinitely cooler. It’s essentially a jetpack that you wear on your feet. You step into a pair of boots that are connected by a board, which is in turn connected to a long hose that attaches to a personal water craft. Water is then pumped from the personal water craft through the hose and comes out under the boots, providing the necessary propulsion to allow you to literally soar to new heights.

You can sign up for a 30-minute flight or go for the full hour. It’s probably not realistic to expect to do backflips or dolphin dives your first time out, but hey you gotta start somewhere, right?
