Daredevils, this one is for you. If you thought darting through the ocean on a jet ski was the ultimate fast-paced watersport, then you absolutely have to give a flyboard a go. Strap on water-jet power boots and be rocketed up to 12 meters into the air for an unrivaled buzz at sea.

These are best suited to experienced watersport aficionados, as finding your balance whilst hovering above the waters is no easy feat, even if is an incredible feeling once mastered.
You won't be alone to get to grips with using a flyboard: a trained crew member will give you a thorough safety briefing on usage before soaring.
