If you think you’ve seen it all on the water, this might make you think twice.
The “Flyboard” Water Jet-Pak makes its American debut Wednesday in a demonstration that runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Lake Las Vegas.
The personal watercraft propels riders skyward on a powerful jet stream of water and allows extended aerial maneuvers, along with dives and belo-surface speeds that rival underwater creatures, according to product manufacturers.
The “Flyboard” is the creation of jet ski racer Franky Zapata, owner of Zapata Racing, headquartered in Le Rove, France. Zapata will perform aerial stunts and dives at the water’s edge in MonteLago Village. Spectators are also invited to view the demonstration from atop the 80-foot La Contessa yacht moored in the adjacent marina.
