The flyboard attaches to rider's feet by a pair of boots like a snowboard or wakeboard allowing the rider to preform moves much like its counterparts can. Once you have gained some skill you'll be diving through the water like a dolphin and shooting straight up out of the water like a super human!
Power/thrust is controlled by the instructor on the jet-ski and a hose connected from the jet-ski to the board pumps the water through to the board attached to the rider's feet. Jets on the board then redirect out the water rapidly. By pointing toes down whilst lying belly down the water pressure will propel the rider up into the air.
If you're over 16, have a sense of adventure and are itching for new and exciting experiences....this is for you! It is a very intuitive sport and physical fitness is not an important factor required to master it. You do not need to have any experience as the skilled instructors will guide you through your flyboard lesson.
There is no weight restriction.
After approx. 10 mins you will have gained your balance and can attempt some wicked moves and tricks
Flyboard Cairns operates 5-7 days a week at our primary site in Marlin Marina just 2 minutes outside of the Cairns CBD. We can also operate at Palm Cove, Yorkey's Knob and Lake Tinaroo.
Note: Flyboard Cairns operations are dependent on fair weather. Operating hours and locations may often vary. Therefore the providers encourage you to contact us 24hrs prior to your session, so that we can update you on our location.
It is very easy and remarkably intuitive, and no previous experience is needed.
We find that everyone is different. It takes an average time of about 10 minutes to get out of the water, and another 15 minutes to learn how to maneuver. Our instructors will be continually observing your safety, and ensure you get the most fun out of your session.
