You may recall our resident gadget writer’s wish list on page 46 of the June 2012 edition of indulge where this toy featured. Now, you can book yourself a go – although not yet in Malta.
This may be your only chance to walk on water! Commonly known as the flyboard, water jet boots provide a sensation that can only be described as aquatic flight. Following a detailed briefing, hit the water with the flyboard and once ready, the power is turned on so the jet-ski pumps water up the tube, which comes out of the boots, causing the board to rise above the surface. After hovering in the air and gaining balance, the board goes higher, creating an incredible feeling of flight – practice board control, turns and if feeling particularly confident, some underwater dives. This exciting aquatic experience is essential for budding daredevils and superheros! The experience lasts about 2 hours.
