Learn How to flyboard
Learning how to flyboard is one of the most fun “lessons” you will ever have on the water. If you have the top gear and top instructor, your’ll be flyboarding in no time. The following is a brief run down of how to flyboard and how flyboarding works. This is not a replacement for actual instruction, but a primmer to get you ready for fun and excitement when you come and flyboard with us!
The Right Flyboard Equipment
It’s super easy to know how to flyboard when you have the right equipment and the right instructor. Let’s start off with the equipment first. We use the X-Board by Flydive, the U.S. based builder and one of our close associates in this industry. The X-Board has advantages over all other flyboards in that:
- Jets are directly under foot for better stability.
- Jets are independent for better maneuverability.
- Lighter “all up” weight.
After years of hydroflying, we understand the pros and cons of each system and we settled on the X-Board for easiest to get up on and our success with our students shows that this is indeed the case.
The Right Flyboard Instructor.
To learn how to flyboard you must have a great instructor. Brandon Robinson is the original master trainer and has trained most of the instructors in this area. He started with the flyboard in 2012 and has instructed hundreds of people and only had one person fail to get up. Brandon is the perfect example of a happy guy that loves what he does. His enthusiasm is infectious and his patience will help even the most nervous get up in the air and have a blast.
How to Flyboard
OK, ready to take off above the water and fly with the power of a hydro jet stream? After getting booted up into the flyboard, you will swim out a few yards. Once clear of the beach you will get a bit of thrust from Brandon who is connected to you via a long fire hose. The hose is the same kind that fire fighters use. Brandon pulls his throttle on his jetski. You’ll be on your belly with your head up and begin to move through the water. You are actually pulling the jetski along because you are connected!
When you’re away from the shore, Brandon will coach you as to how to arch your back as he throttles up. This will bring the flyboard underneath you as the thrust increases. When you and Brandon feel the time is right, the thrust is increased and you come out of the water and begin to fly!
With a bit more instruction from Brandon and a few attempts, you’ll be high above the waves – 30′ feels like 60′ – it’s amazing!
Tricks and advanced moves are something you and Brandon can work on during your flight time. Come and join us and learn hot to flyboard from one of the best in the industry.
