Superhero for a Day!

Flyboarding on Whitefish Lake

sunny 35 °C

I am on the crazy countdown to my departure to Macau, China where I will be teaching elementary PE for potentially 2 years. This summer has been about spending as much time in the outdoors with friends and family as possible and truly living in each moment. I can honestly say that this has been one fantastic July that will make me miss North America lots! One thing that I wanted to cross off the bucket list during my last week was trying flyboarding. Its a sport that I didn't even know existed until this summer but I knew I had to do it! So off my parents and I went to Whitefish for an adventure.

I began the lesson a little nervous but it didn't take long for the adrenaline to kick in and the fun to begin! You are hooked up on a wakeboard type board with jets on the bottom. There is then a hose that is attached to the board and also to a sea-doo. When the instructor hits the throttle the water shoots up through the hose and out through the jets on your board and up in the air you go. It was so much fun! It was unlike anything I had ever tried before.

Part way through the lesson we started even trying out tricks. 360's and such. I did take a handful of wipe outs during the lesson but they were worth the pain associated with a 15 foot bellyflop! The flyboard probably goes to about 20 feet in the air...such a cool view from up above.

All in all it was an amazing day to remember! I can't wait to try again next year!
