Searching for that next adrenaline rush? Give flyboarding a try! If you’ve ever wondered what it would feel like to fly like a superhero, now’s your chance to find out. Here’s our complete guide to flyboarding in Sarasota.
What is Flyboarding?
Flyboarding is a relatively new extreme sport, involving an accessory called a flyboard that attaches to a personal watercraft. The flyboard is mounted to your feet and connected to a waverunner turbine by a 60-foot hose, allowing you to “fly” into the air and dive in and out of the water.
How it Works
You strap the flyboard to your feet, enter the water, and stand up as your guide gradually throttles the jet ski to increase the stream of water. As the rider, you will need to work to keep your legs straight and your hips over your knees. This will ensure that the propulsion carries you in the right direction – up!
What to Expect The First Time
Trying flyboarding in Sarasota for the first time? No worries! Flyboarding is easy and safe. After receiving the proper instruction, you’ll be flying the flyboard within minutes of entering the water. It’s all about balance, so relax and follow your guide’s instructions. Once you’re up on the flyboard, you can fly over the water, under the water, and freestyle with very little risk of getting hurt. Get ready to have a blast on your first ride and every one after that!
Is it Safe?
Yes, flyboarding is extremely safe! The flyboard is buoyant so it floats on the water, which makes it easy to rest on the water’s surface and recover between flights. You are also protected by injury-preventing safety gear including a personal flotation vest, helmet, and boots. The helmet also protects your ears from any discomfort caused by hitting the water.
