Pre-Flight Instruction

The Introductory Flight Course is our requirement for all Flyboard and Hoverboard beginners. This course will teach you the basic skills needed to take flight. After watching a short instructional and safety video, you will be outfitted with the necessary safety equipment and paired with your own personal Zapata Racing Certified Instructor who will teach you everything you’ll need to know.

The purpose for taking this course is to ensure the safety of not only our flyers, but for others out enjoying the water as well. As with all extreme sports there is a level of assumed risk, and we want to limit that risk as much as possible. After all, we want to make sure you go home raving about your experience with us.

Here’s a breakdown of what to expect:

  • Operation and Safety Instruction
  • Pre-Flight Ground School Training
  • Use of All Required Safety Equipment
  • One-on-One Training with one of our Zapata Racing Certified Instructors

Getting Familiar

The Flyboard is an accessory with wake board boots attached to a Flyboard that in turn attaches to the jet discharge of a Personal Watercraft (PWC) and uses the jet discharge of the PWC to propel the device through the air and water.

Taking Flight

The Flyboard® is very intuitive : it’s like learning to walk. Find your balance and you will become a Flying Man or Dolphin Man! It will take around 10 minutes to learn with an instructor. Then you will be able to take off from water and enjoy your Flyboard® for hours!

And We Have Lift Off

This is truly an experience that you don’t want to miss and the best part is that most any able-bodied person can do it and the more you fly the better you become!
