You Don’t Need to Board a Plane to Fly

As you may have realized already, I love trying out new things. From driving the Autobahns to walking the red carpet, I’ve spent a lot of time broadening my horizons this past year.

A couple of weeks ago, while in San Diego, I went Flyboarding. For those of you who don’t know, Flyboarding was developed by Zapata Racing in the Spring of 2011. It was introduced at the jet ski World Championship in China and created a huge buzz around the world.

Well of course I had to try this sport! Thanks to Aaron, Paul, Hickey and all the West Virginia boys from Aquatic Aviation, I was able to ride this INSANE machine. It’s powered by a water jet from a jet ski, with two under your feet and two smaller ones attached to your wrists. You use your feet and legs as well as your arms to remain stable and maneuver.

I can’t fully explain the great time I had in words, so I wanted to share the video evidence of my experience. I cannot wait to do this again!
