That's me on Lake St. Clair. If I can do it, you can do it better. Windsor Flyboards has 2 boards and 3 Yamaha PWC, a 27 foot boat and an F150!

I had no ldea what a flyboard was, that looks like it was a riot, thanks for posting the pics.

Is it as difficult to balance as it looks?

Most of the work is in the knees and ankles. The guys at Windsor Flyboards make it look even easier. My sense of balance is horrible, but I managed to get up a little higher than in the pics. It was my first time. I'll do it again.

Anyone have any interest in organizing a group for flyboarding? Maybe early next year?

It's tough enough to get people together for a coffee, lol, but it's an interesting idea, as I said, looks like a riot.

The difficult part of that (for me anyway) is that with travel time it would likely be an all day thing, so it's a matter of finding that time to set aside.

No back flips for me. I'm not the youngest bugger anymore. I'm working on being up for 5~10 minutes at a time and being able to control better. BTW - I'll be in Windsor again for the long weekend. Camping at Wheatley Provincial Park and probably Saturday at Windsor Flyboards. They're debating Peche Island or Crystal Bay. I don't know where either are yet. Taking my GF's 2 sons and future daughter-in-law with us. Gonna see if they listen or if they're gonna wear towels back to shore.
