The Zapata Racing Flyboard

The Zapata Racing Flyboard repurposes the workings of a personal watercraft such as a Sea-Doo or a Jet Ski to create the wildest experience you can have on the water. By using its on-board jet pump to power water through a hose connected to a separate wakeboard-size platform, the Flyboard shoots highly pressurized water through two nozzles on the bottom of the board to fly as high as 10 meters or even dive below the surface.

After about twenty ugly minutes falling into the drink, I was soaring above the water on my rocket boots, it’s a singular feeling, hovering three meters above a lake while people on the beach frantically reach for their phones.

The Flyboard ain’t cheap, though: price in the US is about $9500 plus the watercraft.
