Imagine shooting through the water, flying high and diving back in like a dolphin! Or flying high above the water like a superhero! Flyboarding is the kind of experience that we’ve dreamt about when we were kids. In this blog post, we’ll answer the most common questions we get about flyboarding and talk about flyboard rental in San Diego.
How Does Flyboarding Work?
The flyboard is connected to a jet ski or similar type of personal watercraft, by a long hose and attached to the flyer’s feet. The instructor on the jet ski controls how much water is propelled through the hose. More water means stronger lifts.
Though the instructors control the power of the water, they don’t control the actual flight. That’s on you. As the flyboarder, you can shift your feet to control your flight’s direction. Subtle movements will help you keep your balance and fly the board.
To fly like a pro, controlling your movements is vital. For instance, if you want to get out of the water, keeping your legs straight while maintaining the upper body still, will help you a lot. Once you’re flying, on the other hand, moving will help you stabilize your flight while trying to remain still will cause the hose to push you in the direction it goes.
Flyboarding, Is It Hard to Learn?
The gear might seem a bit scary, but flyboarding is just like any other sport. There’s a learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, the real fun begins!
The key to flyboarding is finding your balance like you would when riding a skateboard or snowboard, but without bending your legs. By the way, if you have practiced these extreme sports or if you’re active in any way, flyboarding will be much easier.
