What is Flyboard?
It is a water jet board strapped to your feet. Makes you look really cool and fly like Ironman. The jetflyer’s feet are strapped on to the board. The power from the jetski converts in to a 45 ft hose and out the jet outlets on the board.

The Jet pack is similar but instead of being strapped in by your feet the Jet pack is strapped on to your back. You control with jet pack with hand controls. A tandem seat can be used so that an experienced pilot may take a passenger.

How does it work?
The Jetski provides all the power for the Flyboard. Once throttle is applied to the Jetski, the intake on the Jetski sucks up the water, then into a big metal elbow at the back. Redirecting the water 180 degrees into a 45ft fire hose and out through the Flyboard strapped to your feet.

How long is each flight?
The Hero flight session is 30 mins including training. The Super Hero flight is the longer flight at 45 minutes with additional training.

The Tandem flight is a 10 – 15 minutes ride in the water. Gearing up with wetsuit, life vest etc, may take an extra 15 minutes. Allow 30 minutes all up.

The Solo session is a 40-minute session included in that time is a 10-minute onshore training session and 30 minutes in the water. Allow 1 hour for the Solo session.

Is the water cold?
Lake Wakatipu can be cold, but with their 5mm thick wetsuits, you don’t even feel the cold once your adrenaline starts pumping.

Is there a minimum age limit?
The Flyboard age limit is 10 years old

The Jetpack has a minimum age of 16 for the Solo session.
The tandem jet pack option has a minimum age of 6.

I can’t swim, can I still Flyboard?
You must be able to be confident in the water; if you can’t swim at all, we're afraid you won’t be able to FlyBoard.

What if I dive underwater and don’t come up again?
Everything floats so as soon as you go underwater for a period of time the experience jetski operator will cut the engine and you’ll float.

How hard is it?
FlyBoarding is very easy and only takes about 5 mins to get up and flying. Experience Flyboard instructors will give you training before your flying experience and also give you tips along the way.

What should I wear?
Flyboard Queenstown provide everything for you including a wetsuit, life vest and helmet. You may bring a swimsuit to wear under the wetsuit if you like.
