Want to Fly Like Ironman? Cabo Pacific Tours' Guide to Flyboarding in Cabo San Lucas


August 10, 2016

A FlyBoard is an accessory that attaches to the jet discharge of a Personal Watercraft (PWC) and uses the jet discharge of the PWC to propel the device through the air and water. The FlyBoard was first developed in 2011 by French Jet Ski racer Franky Zapata. Since then, it has taken the watersports world by storm.  So are you ready to try the coolest and most exciting water sport adventure ever? At Cabo Pacific Tours, we can have you up and flying in no time. Flyboarding is easy to learn and really fun right from the start. Our instructors are professionally trained and have one goal: to make sure you have a fun and safe time.

Using a set of patented adapters, inventor Franky Zapata of "Zapata Racing," turned an ordinary watercraft into a water sports sensation. The FlyBoard is connected to the PWC by a 55-foot long, 4” diameter fire hose that can propel the pilot/rider over 35 feet above or below the surface of the water. Almost any able-bodied person can do it and the more you fly the better you become.

The FlyBoard itself has its own buoyancy and floats on the water, so that you can relax safely in the water during breaks, or before and after takeoff. To get you up and flying, all of the thrust developed from the PWC is routed through the hose, so the PWC just follows behind you, giving you the freedom to accomplish 3D flight – which means you can fly over the water, under the water, and have complete freedom to fly freestyle without the risk of getting hurt.

FlyBoarding is much softer than wakeboarding, tubing or other watersports, so you get the most fun possible without the high speed tumbles. Considering the many safety features, research, and instructor training put into FlyBoarding, we can assure you that the FlyBoard is very safe, fast, and easy to use. Learning to operate the FlyBoard is much easier and intuitive than you might think. Once you have applied the instructions given to you, anyone can FlyBoard within the first 5-10 minutes in the water.

Cabo Pacific Tours offers Flyboarding adventures Monday through Friday. The trip includes bottled water, professional instruction, all the gear you'll need, and a fresh fruit snake. You will want to bring a change of clothes, a secure swimsuit, a sunhat, sunscreen, towel, and money for souvenir photos taken of you during the fun.
