Using a set of unique and patented adapters, inventor Franky Zapata of Zapata Racing, turned an ordinary watercraft into a Water Sports Sensation. The thrust from the PWC is routed through a long hose up to the Flyboard® where a rider can divert and control that thrust to create any type of movement he/she desires. All of the thrust developed from the PWC is routed through the hose, so the PWC just follows behind the rider in trail giving you the freedom to go anywhere, even underwater. The Flyboard® has its own buoyancy and therefore floats on the water allowing the rider more safety and easier time in the water prior to start. Be sure to watch all of our videos on our homepage to see how this really works. To sum this up, you can fly over the water, under the water, and have complete freedom to fly freestyle without the risk of getting hurt. We can assure you that the Flyboard® is extremely SAFE.
This lets you focus on the basics and keeps you safe until you get the hang of it. More advanced fliers can control the throttle and start/stop of the PWC from the handholds on the Flyboard with the use of the EMK (Electronic Management Kit). Fancy maneuvers and tricks require precise timing and throttle control. When you are ready to step it up, the EMK is a must-have accessory. The Flyboard can attach to most PWC’s. Using a set of unique patented adapters, you can quickly attach or completely remove the Flyboard. It is not necessary to commit your machine solely for the use of the Flyboard.
