Rocky Mountain FlyBoard
We ran into Rocky Mountain Flyboard at the Utah Boat Show last week and have not been able to stop talking about them since. For all of us sailors out there, fair warning, this little gem has nothing to do with sailing but everything to do with water and fun. Chances are, if you’re in the U.S., you probably haven’t seen anything like this before, and if you’re an adreneline junkie you’ll want to head to the front of the line for your own chance on the Flyboard.
Here’s How It Works:
- Strap on a Flyboard
- Hook it up to a Jetski
- In 20 minutes you’ll be doing dolphin dives and twists like a pro.
Sounds easy right? Just hook up your 50 foot hose to the back of your jet ski and you’ll be off and running. We haven’t had the chance to try one yet personally, but after we met with the brothers at Rocky Mountain Flyboard they assured us that the learning curve is fast and simple. It also safe when you have been given the proper instruction. What’s the catch? If you purchase a Flyboard you do need to go through a quick one day training session on how to use and operate the equipment. Once you have completed the training, then you’ll be given your own Flyboard. You do need to be 18 years or older to operate one.
Two big tips we learned from the pros:
- Make sure you keep an eye on the jet ski at all times, (It might hurt to Dolphin Dive onto your buddy on the jet ski)
- Keep your legs straight when you stand up and come out of the water.
Flyboards are available to rent or buy, or for demonstrations in Utah. Teams are available at four different lakes along the Wasatch Front to help you take flight: Utah Lake, Willard Bay, Jordanelle, and Echo Reservoir.For questions or more information on how much it costs and what’s included when you purchase one visit:
