Introducing….The Dolphin Jetpack

Introducing….The Dolphin Jetpack

A French jet ski champion has released an absolutely insane Flyboard for professional jet-skier Franky Zapata along with the following video demoing the product.

The device is actually quite simple. The “Zapata Flyboard” attaches to a jet ski motor then pushes the resulting water through a long hose that connects to a pair of water boots and hand-held stabilizers. The propulsion gives Zapata breaching like powers that a Humpback Whale would be jealous of. Zapata says he can fly 30ft above the sea with it. GizMag aptly described it as “Aquaman meets Ironman.”

Ever been to a tech festival?

TNW Conference won best European Event 2016 for our festival vibe. See what's in store for 2017.

While swimming with dolphins will cost you around $100, swimming like a dolphin with this flyboard will cost you $6,600.
