VIDEO: 'Surf the sky'

It’s different strokes for different folks when it comes to fun on the water — or under it, or above it.

Rocketing over and under water with jets strapped to your feet may not be for everyone, but for fans of the Flyboard it brings out their inner dolphin — and Iron Man.

Powered by the output of a PWC tethered to a 55-foot hose, the jet boots and jet-nozzle gloves can launch a user 40 feet into the air and more than 10 feet under water.

Developed by Zapata Racing in France, the Flyboard is making its way into the United States through authorized distributors such as Rocky Mountain Flyboard, which are setting up rental operations for the curious and brave interested in an “experience like none other.”

The manufacturer says new users can get the knack for Flyboarding in about 20 minutes with an instructor or an hour without.
