I have not ridden on this, but I've watched it countless times from shore. It looks like fun, but the water here is always cold - not like Hawaii or Florida. The company will be terminating this ride this year because they wanted to run...More

This is your chance to defy gravity. Both the jet pack and the board were fun. Most agree though that the board is great fun, but definately more challenging. I would not recommend a flip on your first flight, it really hurts. You do not...More
