LOOK MAUDE…IT’S SOME NEW FANGLED WATER THINGY!


I now know that this is called “Fly boarding”. Of course it is…..We all thought Iron Man from the movies was out on the lake…but then I realized it wasn’t Robert Downey Jr. out there showing off some new skills and the disappointment was indescribable. 

This is an amazing water toy…at times the fly boarder dives down into the water like a dolphin…apparently shoots around underwater and then rises up and up into the air. Crazy! 

 

"OK…I'M GOING OVER THAT WAY."
“OK…I’M GOING OVER THAT WAY.”

 

Flyboard 1a (1 of 1)

 

 

"HERE I GO!"
“HERE I GO!”

 

Flyboard 3a (1 of 1)

 

"HERE I AM…THE SUPREME MASTER OF THE LAKE…AT LEAST FOR TODAY…HERE I GO AGAIN.."
“HERE I AM…THE SUPREME MASTER OF THE LAKE…AT LEAST FOR TODAY…HERE I GO AGAIN……WHY ARE YOU GIVING ME THAT, WAIT, WAIT SIGNAL? I CAN”T WAIT….DON’T YOU REALIZE THAT I’M STANDING ON A BOARD UP IN THE AIR, READY TO FALL DOWN?”

 

"WHEEEE!"
“WHEEEE!”

 

"WOO-HOO!"
“WOO-HOO!”

 

"TA-DA!       I DID A WHOLE CIRCLE, SOMERSAULT, FLIPPY THINGY,  WITHOUT FALLING ON MY BOTTOM!"
“TA-DA! I DID A WHOLE CIRCLE, SOMERSAULT, FLIPPY THINGY, WITHOUT FALLING ON MY BOTTOM!”

 

Now I wish these were sharper, but these guys were a long, long way out in the water…my poor little zoom lens had its work cut out for it…but you at least get an idea of how this “performance” looked.  

If anyone is interested in taking lessons to learn how to do this, just let me know in a comment….after I learn how to do it, and assuming I survive my lessons, I will teach you.

    1. HA! I won’t be doing it…but just for the record…look at the size of the fellow on the jet ski in the first image…it lifted him way up out of the water…no problem..

  1. Holy crap, I have never seen anything like that in my life!! It looks like a blast, but I would have to be awfully drunk to even think about trying it. I would be in the emergency room for sure LOL!

  2. Every comment indicating interest in those lessons entitles the blogger to a certificate giving instant admittance to the nearest institution catering for the care of the hopelessly nutty …
    Looks like the sort of fun which has one saying ‘Let us Pray,’ and ‘Let us spray!’ all at the same time!

    1. One of my first thoughts, upon seeing this interesting “sport”, “How many trips are the hospital ambulances going to have
      to make to pick up the injured.” “Let us Pray”, indeed!

  3. I want to, I want to, Itwantto, want to,wantto… oh what the hell when you’ve learnt and you post the photos as proof I’ll tell you if you can teach me, but I want to see triple summies, dolphin dives, sardine springs, whale wallops, shark snatches, turtle turns, Hake hops, Catfish crawls, pike plunges, Codfish crashes, Guppy gallops, Moon-fish maneuvers, Salmon slides, Pig-fish plops, Roach rapping, Sailfish saluting, Yellow-fin yawning, Lungfish lunges, Marlin marching, trout tumbles and finally a blow-fish bomb…..

    1. I……I…..I…..I….I….I….don’t even know how to respond to this masterful compilation of aquatic brilliance. Holy cow!!
