What would a private luxury yacht charter be without access to water toys? One of the latest and greatest we have come across is the Flyboard! When Back to The Future II hit the big screen, everybody wanted a hoverboard. Now, finally in 2016, the Flyboard is pretty much the closest you can get.
The Flyboard, and a similar device called the Jetovator, are basically water propelled jetpacks that allow you to soar 40ft in the air, doing twists and turns that could make Iron Man jealous.
The Ultimate Water Toys
The Flyboard was invented by Champion Jet Skier and French daredevil, Franky Zapata. Like a wakeboard, you strap your feet into the Flyboard, but instead of merely being towed across the surface, you are attached to a Jet Ski via a flexible hose, which redirects the force of the water from the Jet Ski’s engines, sending the Flyboarder zooming into the air. You can control your aerial movements by shifting your feet and knees. Skilled riders like Zapata can be seen doing flips, spins, and other aerial acrobatics on a Flyboard.
The Jetovator, which hit the scene in 2015, is similar in concept to the Flyboard, but instead of strapped to the feet, it is ridden more like a bicycle. Riders on the Jetovator can dive down below the surface, and then rocket back up into the sky. The rider changes direction via controls on the handle bars, while thrust is controlled by the tethered Jet Ski.
