The Flyboard: A Water-Powered Jetpack For Your Feet

flyboard-zapata.jpg

The Flyboard from Zapata Racing is basically a water powered jetpack similar to this one that this guy used to almost eat a dock, except for your feet. So, in summary, exact same thing but strapped to your feet. I guess it's all a matter of personal taste, are you more of a jetpack or jetboot kind of person? Personally, I couldn't care less, just as long as it gets me to the moon. "What about a rocket powered buttplug?" Depends -- is it impossible to put in backwards? I AIN'T GETTIN' BURNT LIKE LAST TIME.

Hit the jump for a video, including some worthwhile human dolphin action at 0:40.

The Flyboard water jet pack is pretty freaking cool [nbc]

    Flyboard Water Jet-Pak Debuts at Lake Las Vegas

    If you think you’ve seen it all on the water, this might make you think
    twice.

    The “Flyboard” Water Jet-Pak makes its American debut Wednesday in a
    demonstration that runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Lake Las Vegas.

    The personal watercraft propels riders skyward on a powerful jet stream of
    water and allows extended aerial maneuvers, along with dives and belo-surface
    speeds that rival underwater creatures, according to product manufacturers.

    The “Flyboard” is the creation of jet ski racer Franky Zapata, Zapata will
    perform aerial stunts and dives at the water’s edge in MonteLago Village.

    Zapata also will be greeting spectators and signing autographs after the
    demonstration in Casino MonteLago from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.

    Details of the flyboard are available at globally www.flyboard.net  or contact mail@flyboard.net

    He was awesome on it. She kinda sucked, so it's probably difficult to control and will most likely be expensive as bugger all. But it's pretty wicked. 

  • The stunts he was doing are kinda stupid lol

  • Daniel

    Video is so funny. And yes you are right is looks so stupid.personal

  • Now all he needs is a Ironman styled wetsuit! hmmm maybe I should patent that right now...

  • Please tell me they'll sell these as a jetski Bolt on kit and not just make you buy the "floating motor" Pretty sure you could easily shave off $129,000 off of $130,000 (imaginary made up, highly likly price) I mean it SHOWS him bolting it to his Jetski, make them a Jetski ADD-ON will make him millions in orders alone! It'll be affordable!
