If you’ve never witnessed Fly Boarding, you are missing out! Fly Boarding is where a rider stands on a board connected to a long hose; the water is forced into a pair of boots that jets the rider to fly up to 22m (72ft) in the air! Alongside the Flyboarding will be Hovercraft and Aqua bike displays – not to be missed.
