2. What is Flyboard?
Flyboarding is an extreme water sport, one of the newest and coolest out there because it gives you a chance to experience flight! It was created by Franky Zapata in 2012. It works by using water pressure to propel the flyboard into the air with a rider balancing on top. The flyboard is controlled by a jet ski which emits water to the flyboard through a 50 foot long hose. The water in turn is pushed out the jets of the flyboard, raising it into the air. The rider on the flyboard controls the navigation of the board and jet ski, while the rider on the jet ski controls the power
3. How high can I fly?
Basic maneuvers are learned by beginners at a height of approximately 5 feet over the water. However, most people go up to 10 feet their first time. Experienced rider fly at around 10-15 feet, while the maximum height they normally reach is about 35 feet

6. Who controls how much power and how high I can fly?
Flyboarding involves two people, one on a jet ski and the other on the board. The jet skier controls the water supply to the flyboard, and so controls the height it reaches. The jet skiers' control over the height is not total as the fly boarder can adjust the height based on the way they balance on the board.
