The Flyboard Experience is for you! With a range of exciting and adrenalin filled equipment like the Flyboard, Hoverboard and Jetpack; the jetpack adventures are waiting for you.  

But what is a Flyboard, Hoverboard or Jetpack?

The Flyboard is a water jet powered machine which allows propulsion underwater and in the air. The position of two nozzles under your feet ensure propulsion and allow for movement controlled by tilting one’s feet. The nozzles on the hands are used to ensure stabilization, just as ski poles would.

The Flyboard became a worldwide sensation after the posting of a YouTube video in December of 2011. In just 15 days there were over 2.5 million views globally.

New Flyboard extreme sport is taking the world by storm. The Flyboard combines the physical attributes of an array of popular adrenalin sports activities including Jet Skiing, water skiing and wake boarding, skiing and snowboarding and acrobatic diving. Whilst many of these activities can take a substantial amount of time to become skilled at, the Flyboard is very intuitive: it’s like learning to walk; it holds no limits to a person’s fitness level. It will generally take 20 minutes with an instructor to find your balance and start flying freely. Lying face down in the water all you need to do is bend your knees as the instructor throttles forward allowing propulsion for you to fly straight up. A self-manned flight can take you up to an hour to learn on your own, but allows for a superior flight experience. After a bit of practice you will be able to swim like a dolphin and challenge gravity like Iron Man!

The Hoverboard is a fairly new device only released within the last 12 months. Inspired by Marty McFlys ride in Back to the Future; Zapata Racing designed the Hoverboard for its speed and appeal to the wakeboard, surfing, kite surfing, and snowboarding community. Keeping true to his industry the Hoverboard remains as crazy a ride as the Flyboard. Pull that front leg up and watch the Hoverboard soar sky high in a vertical ascent! A more advanced ride for semi-experienced operators looking for some serious adrenalin.

The Jetpack the ultimate ride for your jetpack adventures, has been developed for those customers looking for an alternative to using their legs and relying on their core balance to stay levitated. Despite the Jetpacks relative ease of control the Flyboard is easier for all users to operate. Typically 40 years and up will look to Jetpack over the Flyboard.

What is Flyboard X?

Just like the other 2,499,999 other people that were completely blown away by the crazy, exciting, and extremely futuristic device Franky Zapata decided to call the Flyboard; we wanted one instantly! In fact; we needed one! If swimming with and like a dolphin wasn’t enough cause to purchase one, becoming your very own superhero definitely was. The Flyboard opened the world’s eyes to the endless technological possibilities that the future would seize. And well, once we saw it we were hooked!

As an importer and distributor of unique and extreme products; the Flyboard was a simple must have! The appeal of the Flyboard across a broad demographic of people, and the ability for it to be used by a range of age groups with no need for weight or height limits; was essential for the future success of the product. Bringing a product of this calibre to market was going to be as challenging as it would be rewarding. A new extreme sport that could be grasped in a matter of 20 mins of training meant a relatively intuitive sport that had never been achieved in such a short space of time. Flyboard was a sure success and an extreme sport that would make its mark in history. Flyboard X: a concept of Xtreme sport as Xciting as it is impressive. Xclusively owned and operated by an Australian company.

Flyboard X are the exclusive distributors for the Zapata Flyboard, Hoverboard and Jetpack the founding company to HydroFly – The Flyboard Experience Australia. So if you’re looking for things to do in the Gold Coast or your looking at things to do in Hobart, your adrenalin based experience provider will be able to provide the ultimate experience for you and your crew!
