Flyboarding on Lake Windermere, Lake District

Flyboarding

If you have ever fancied channelling your inner Iron Man then our new Watersports Activity is perfect for you!

At Low Wood Bay Watersports Centre & Marina we are always looking to add new exciting activities to our wide range of water based facilities and new for this season is the exhilarating experience of flyboarding.

A Flyboard is a type of water jetpack attached to a personal water craft (PWC) which supplies propulsion to drive the Flyboard through air and water to perform a sport known as flyboarding. A Flyboard rider stands on a board connected by a long hose to a watercraft. Water is forced under pressure to a pair of boots with jet nozzles underneath which provide thrust for the rider to fly up to 15 metres in the air or to dive headlong through the water.

History of the flyboard

The Flyboard was invented in spring 2011 by a French watercraft rider, Franky Zapata. He built many prototypes before perfecting the design which allows the device to climb out of the water and be stable in the air.
