Make your own way to Pelican Beach on the Gold Coast 15 minutes before your experience starts to be fitted with a life jacket, helmet, and wetsuit and listen to the pre-flight safety briefing. After meeting your instructor, a pro Flyboard rider and world championship contender, take part in a short training session and learn how to balance on your flyboard, how to use the flight controls, and how to move in and out of the water.
Depending on the tour option chosen, either head straight to the water to begin your flyboard flight (30-minute experience only) or take a ride on the world’s first Flyboard Flight Simulator as part of your pre-flight training. Utilizing VR and 360-degree camera technology, the simulator provides a 1st-person view of a real pro rider, engulfing you into a virtual reality with a thrilling surprise at the end. You’ll also have chance to try out a Flyboard modified for use on land, so you can practice flight controls using your feet and knees before stepping foot in the water.
Once you’re feeling comfortable, head out to the water and get your adrenaline pumping as you soar into the air on your jet-powered Flyboard. Depending on the tour duration and your individual experience level, you’ll have chance to master basic maneuvers; try out daring tricks and stunts such as cork screws, tornadoes, or flying in reverse; or even attempt diving like a dolphin or back flipping. Those taking part in a 90-minute session will also get to try out a Hoverboard in addition to the Flyboard.
Once you’re safely back on dry land, you’ll have chance to purchase photos or videos of your experience, before making your own way back to your hotel.
