Flyboard Takes Surfing to a new Dimension

Flyboard is the latest invention of Zapata Racing. It is a special water propulsion personal watercraft designed to enhance the classic surfing experience. The device provides underwater and air propulsion and allows the rider to fly quite high. It also features hand stabilization, but requires the user to find good balance before using it. The gadget is very easy to use, and according to Zapata officials, it can be mastered with proper training in just 10 minutes.

The Flyboard can be used to take judges on the water at surf competitions, to allow riders spot the best waves, help them see when huge waves are getting close and do other similar stuff.

Zapata officials explain how the Flyboard works: "The nozzles under your feet ensure 90% of the propulsion and allow a movement which depends on the feet tilt of the flyboarder and the nozzles on the hands are used to ensure stabilization as ski poles."
