Franky Zapata is the brain behind this cool tech. Thanks to him, we can now fly like Iron Man above the waters.

According to Wikipedia:

“The Flyboard is an accessory that attaches to a personal watercraft (PWC) that gives the Flyboard propulsion through air and water. It can be referred to as a water jetpack.”

See that big hose thing? That is where the water coming from the sea passes through that will thrust your boots above, allowing you to fly. Yeah, like Iron Man.

This Flyboard came all the way from France. It is also the first here in Cebu. You can try it at the historic resort city, Lapu-Lapu City.

What we have here is the latest generation of Flyboard.

Not just that, it’s not easy to get yourself one because you need to have a trained professional to guide on how to properly use this equipment.

It means hard training, because there are so many things you have to deal with before becoming an Iron Man.

How To Fly, literally:

flying 101

Float above the water as you put the gear on.

Bend your knees like you are kneeling.

Simple, isn’t it? Now, let’s apply what we have learned.

Actually, it’s not that simple

It is because based on experience, if you are a first timer, it’s not easy to control the gear as you would have to battle against the current and the pressure of the thrust on your feet.

See the tenminutes.ph team try the Flyboard for the first time.

Others made it into the air for about 15 seconds, not bad for a first timer.

Others just managed to rise up to 3 feet.

Others 5 feet.

But some failed miserably…

…and didn’t even rise a single foot.

You are really pro enough if you can fly as high as this guy.
