Flyboard PEI’s flight instructor, Mike Roberts, provides all your safety equipment (helmet, wetsuit, PFD), pre-flight instruction on the marina docks, coaching in the water and your instructor is always with you. Your feet are attached to the flyboard, much like a ski boot or snowboarding, the board connects to a 60′ hose that connects to the Seadoo. Mike rides on the flyboard Seadoo, while feathering the engine’s throttle, which shoots water out of the Seadoo, into the hose, and then into your board, which gives you lift. Pilots control the water jets and “fly” using their feet/ankles. The Seadoo’s water jet exhaust provides the power to lift a 400lb man out of the water up to 40′ in the air!
How high will I fly? That depends on your abilities and how much throttle is provided. Your flight instructor will guide you from launching out of the water, to flying around the jet ski to doing dolphin dives into the water. First, you must listen, do your flight drills successfully before you can safely go higher in the air or underwater.
