Flyboarding

Recommended Posts

ponderosasurf

Anyone on here flyboarding? Just finished my first summer with this sport and absolutely loved it. Looking to improve next summer and looking for some tips. Also want to know what people are using as a boot on their boards. I like the stock ones but looking for some new ones

Thanks!

i have only done it once (this summer) it was a lot of fun. I have no clue what gear to get but thought it would be a fun thing to get into on a regular basis. post some videos.

My buddy & his wife got to take a crack at it last summer. They both got up pretty easily & had fun doing it. Cost appears to be around $5k plus a $10k PWC. He's not ready to buy in yet. Pretty tough to take it very far from the launch site.

The people who owned the gear said their only getting about 300 hours from the PWCs. Their using supercharged SeaDoos for 200+ lb guys & turn 6k - 8k or more RPMs.

I have a mate heading to the states in April. Can anyone hook us up with a 2nd flyboard setup at a reasonable price?

I have done it once. Guy has one on our lake. It is a ton of fun, but a challenge. Hard to describe but I would love to do it more often. Like Bill said, not ready to make a 15k investment.

I considered it after trying one a friend had rented - until I found out the rental company replaces the PWC engines on a regular basis "a few times per summer." I got the impression it was way less than 300 hours.

We have one. It is a spendy investment, but well worth it. We are running ours with an RXT-X which has plenty of power to get anyone out of the water. We also live on the lake so we do it right from our dock. I am in Iowa around the des moines area if anyone from the crew is looking to try it out this next summer. I will get some photos posted soon
