How does it work?
It is a water-propelled version of the hoverboard, which uses water pressure and jet nozzles to provide thrust to fly the hoverboard up to 70ft.
This device is set in motion by water through a hose, which is attached to a jet-ski.
Riders are strapped into the boots attached to the flyboard, the water pressure created by the jet-ski passes through the 60ft attached hose and is let out through the two nozzles attached beneath the footplate to provide elevation.
