You’re Going To Want To Add This To Your Summer Bucket List

Perfect for bachelor/ette parties, adrenaline junkies and anyone who likes to live a little.

There’s a funny thing about heights. The sensation is all relative. If you focus on something close, you’re good. If you focus on something 50-100-1000 feet below you, your nerves are going to go to work on you. Now, if you’re like most people, that’s a bad thing.

If you’ve caught the adrenaline bug, however, fear is what makes things fun.

When it comes to being in the water, your sense of height is literally sea level. You’re probably somewhere between 5-7 feet tall on land, but once you’re in the water, everyone is just keeping their head above water.

That’s what makes a Flyboard so damn exciting/terrifying. When you get up for the first time, your feet may barely be out of the water…but your mind is thinking that your body is 6 feet above where it’s supposed to be.

…and then you keep going, higher and higher.

Now the Flyboard is 10 feet up in the air, your head is 16 feet in the air and you have to figure out how to maneuver the damn thing. The craziest part about this is the expression on your face.

As you get the hang of it and slowly rotate towards whoever’s watching you, think that you’re looking like this…

Unfortunately, the reality of the situation is that you spend your whole time up in the air looking like this…

It’s really nothing to be ashamed of. Nothing takes you out of your comfort zone like re-learning how to walk when you’re 20 feet in the air.

The crazy thing is just how cool it is. You spend a half hour learning to get up in the air…and a lot of time falling back into the water…but 48 hours later, your friends will wonder why you’re still talking about it.
