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.
