Iron Man in the Philippines?! No, it’s the Super Cool Flyboard

4 comments

With temperature playing between 30 and 37 degrees Celsius in Manila, you would want to cool off from the summer heat in the beach. A lot of rave has been happening at the Subic Bay Freeport as a new water sport has landed on the Philippine shores.

One of the hottest craze in sports these days is the action-packed water sport Flyboard. Created by the French Jet Ski champion, Frank Zapata, Flyboard is  an ingenious machine that allows you to experience surreal adventure just like superheroes. This device is powered by a Jet Ski; it is composed of a power hose, a board with foot binds and nozzles for thrusts,  nozzles on each wrist for stabilisation and an electronic kit that allows the person to control the action of the Flyboard. It can make you fly over 30ft high and perform different tricks in and out of the water. You can even swim like a dolphin!

Now Subic Bay has flyboarding to add in its roster of fun water activities such as jet skiing, sailing, kayaking, scuba diving, etc. This new leisure is a bit expensive as it costs PHP4,500.00 for only 20 minutes but it sure does look worth the price because it will make you fly just like Iron Man!
