Flyboarding is a great Branson outdoor fun activity in the Ozark region that offers exciting watersport adventure where you can fly like ironman. Flyboard Branson is one of the newest and coolest vacation attractions at the State Park Marina. The excitement of rising above the water through the water jets attached to your feet is one of a kind experience that you can’t forget. Flyboard Branson has certified instructors to assist you to let you airborne within minutes. As no experience is necessary for this thrilling Branson outdoor fun, all participants joining the fun need to have a preflight training.
A Flyboard is much like a wakeboard where a water jet pack is strapped on your feet. This watersport will enable you to hover, ascend, and descend over the water with great range of movements like an “Iron Man”. The long hose that is attached to a jet ski provides the propulsion of the Flyboard. The propulsion is then funneled into the attached hose enabling the Flyboard to run and up into the air. The thrust of the Flyboard which determines how high the rider goes, is controlled by the instructor. The control of the Flyboard by the instructor is important because if the Flyboarder gets close to the jet ski, the instructor can lower the Flyboarder back into the water.
Beautifully located at State Park Marina, Flyboard Branson is offering a new watersport fun activity to hover above the pristine Table Rock Lake. According to instructor Khelon Hayes, who started the business, “Flyboarding provides an Aquaman or Iron Man experience.” “It is literally a jet pack you strap on your feet which gives you the ability to hover, ascend, descend, spin, move, dive in and out of the water, whatever you prefer.”
This is the second season that Flyboard Branson offered this great watersport activity at the state park, said Julie Hayes, Khelon’s wife. Julie added, “We actually saw a YouTube video for it and thought it looked really neat but there wasn’t anything like it in the Midwest we could think of, or at least in the Branson area.” Flyboard Branson was broadcast live on the Weather Channel when they were in Branson and was also featured on the cover of a travel magazine.
With the Flyboard, you can go up and fly within the first five minutes, which is really amazing. As you take your first attempt with the flyboard, your actual balance is in the ankles because you stand completely tall so you don’t have to bend your knee or turn your hips to get out of the water. When you want to turn around, you need to slightly bend one knee and keep the other leg straight and you’ll feel the flyboard start to turn you in one direction or another however hard you bend your knee.
So, if you want to experience the thrill of an amazing watersport activity in Branson, try the fun of flyboarding at the State Park Marina on the pristine Table Rock Lake.
