Friday Find: Flyboard – a crazy new French invention

How’s this for a weird new sport? From what we can gather, the idea seems to be that you strap yourself to this board, which you then strap to the arse-end of a jetski, and it kicks you up into the air so you can bounce around like Free Willy on speed. IF we had to guess, we’d say the French dude who invented the thing saw footage of what happens when firemen let go of their hoses and thought “wouldn’t it be rad if you could control that?” Having made something that sort-of works (although it doesn’t look very easy for beginners, they keep eating shit!) he then got one of his mates to put together the cheesy YouTube promo vid. Cos that’s what you do when you invent a “new” action sport innit?
