Aruba Tourist Information and Vacation Guide
One of the newer sports to become popular on Aruba is called flyboarding.
A flyboard is water-based jetpack that is connected to a personal water craft (PWC) by a long hose. The PWC propels the flyboard into the air using water pressure.
The rider uses a pair of special boots with jet nozzles underneath to fly to an elevation of up to 50 feet (15 meters).
This new sport was invented in 2012 by Franky Zapata. Watch video.
