Flyboarding

As we have learnt in our inquiry unit, water is an essential resource for the environment and humans. However, water is also used by humans for many different recreational activities. For many years, water has been used for surfing, boating, fishing, kayaking, skiing, body-boarding, jet-skiing, wind surfing and more fun and exciting activities. A new form of recreational activity involving water is starting to become very popular around the world. It is called flyboarding.

  1. – What do you think it would be like to go flyboarding?
    If I will try flyboarding it be so awsome because it will feal like if we are flying like superman. I think that every body will think that flying is amazing.

    – Do you think it would be dangerous? Why/Why not?
    I think it will be very dangererus because whem in the water a shark can attack you.

    – How do think flyboarding works?
    The water pressure is making the people floating in the air.

  2. I think fly boarding is when you have a jet ski and you have a powerful hose attached to the back and water come out and you lift of the ground and go into the air and you are flying.
    I think fly boarding would be fun but a bit freaky to go high over the ocean I have done something like this but not a jetpack so I do have an idea what fly boarding is.
    I think fly boarding would be dangerous for young kids like me because if you don’t know how to use a fly board you might fall into the water and what happens if you can’t swim you know you’re in danger but for adults it might be ok for them because they are allot older and they should be able to swim.
    You have a jet ski and you have a strong hose attached to it and a hole heap of water comes out and you fly high over and through water.

  3. Flyboarding is when a person is hovering across the water with the water that they used, and that water comes back out. It is also when a group of people are doing tricks together while flyboarding, such as jumping up as a dolphin, and landing into the water or looking like superman while flyboarding across the sea. They have hoses attached to a jet ski because I’m pretty sure it’s so that they don’t get lost anywhere across the sea.
    To go flyboarding, it would be very fun to hang around the sea, while getting lifted up by the water. It would be exciting to do tricks and go under the water. I would feel a bit bad though because I would have just realised how much money I spent on the flyboard, but it would still be great to do such a great activity.
    I don’t think it would be dangerous as long as you are in a very safe spot, so that there are no sea creatures to harm you while you’re doing great tricks. I also think that you should have a life vest because the water can get very deep and if you’re not a good swimmer, than you can easily drown.
    I think that a flyboard works because you need to be in water first so the water gets sucked up this pipe that would be attached to the flyboard, and when you’re up in the air, you have to push down a button to blow out the water so you hover above the sea. I think that you never stay up too long because the skinny hose cannot handle your body for a long time.

  4. Flybording is a jet pack flying above and under the water.
    I would think to go Flybording would be very cool to go up and down in the water like a dolphin but it cost a lot of money to have a go.
    Flybording would be very dangerous because on the video when you go under water than you stay under for a very long time and you might not breath well.
    I think Flybording would work by the hose the power would bush you in the air like a rocket in the air.

  5. Explain what you think flyboarding is.
    I think flyboarding is where is where you have a big hose that is contented to a jet ski.
    What do you think it would be like to go flyboarding?
    I believe it would be amazing flying through the air but at the same time it would be scary because you don’t know if the hose will break or come off the Jet Ski.
    Do you think it would be dangerous? Why/Why not?
    Yes I believe it would be dangerous because if you go under water you could drown or if the water was shadow you could bump your head and you could die or if there are rocks and you bump your head on them you could die or get a serious head injury.
    How do you think flyboarding works?
    I believe that flyboarding works through a Jet Ski and a hose is contented through the Jet Ski.

  6. – Explain what you think flyboarding is.
    People fly/ hovering above the water acting like a dolphin.
    – What do you think it would be like to go flyboarding?
    I think it would be like flying but you would fall back in the water.
    – Do you think it would be dangerous? Why/Why not?
    It would be dangerous because if you fell on your back and the water pressure on your arms you would probly brake your back .
    – How do think flyboarding works?
    I think flybording is water pouring out from a hose connected to a jet ski, the pressure of the water pulls you of the water.

  7. – Explain what you think flyboarding is.
    I think flyboarding is the same as using a jet-ski, but instead of the water coming out of the sides it comes out the bottom, and because it’s lighter than a jet-ski the force of the water pushes it up into the air. It is like a jetpack but using water.

    – What do you think it would be like to go flyboarding?
    I think it would be amazing because I have already been jet-skiing and that was really fun, but I think it could be a whole lot different when you get into the air and can fly around.

    – Do you think it would be dangerous? Why/Why not?
    I think it could be extremely dangerous because what would happen if the pipe got blocked with something and it stopped working and you weren’t very close to the jetpack, a shark comes up[ and eats you like a bear savage eating a fish! You could possibly run into a bird or even fall into the jetski or other flyboarders!

    – How do think flyboarding works? I believe that it works by instead the jet-ski bursting the water out the side of it; it pumps the water into the hose/ tube thing, goes up to the board and as the water bursts out (going downwards) the force of the water pushes the person upwards and allows them to fly!

  8. -Explain what you think fly boarding is.
    Fly boarding is like a jet pack above water that enables people to fly above the water and jump through the water like a dolphin

    -What do you think it would be to go fly boarding?
    I think it would be scary to go fly boarding because you may hurt yourself, by doing backflips and going under the water.

    -Do you think it would be dangerous? Why/Why not?
    Yes, because you could easily hurt yourself, when you go up out of the water and back into the water, you could fall on the Jet Ski, be near sharks or real shallow water!

    -How do you think fly boarding works?
    When you’re on the Jet Ski there is a rope that is strapped onto you and then you fly above the water, but you have control of the ropes so you can keep up with the Jet Ski!

  9. – Explain what you think flyboarding is, Flyboarding is new water activity that is like a jetpack above the water and the jetpack can make you jump out of the water like a dolphin.

    – What do you think it would be like to go flyboarding?, It would be the most AWESOME water activity ever and it would be like you’re flying like a bird and swimming and jumping out of the water like a dolphin, (Flying Dolphin).

    – Do you think it would be dangerous? Why/Why not?, It could be dangerous because if you go in the water face first and the water was shallow you would break your neck and become paralyzed.

    – How do think flyboarding works?, I think flyboarding works by the water like when you have a hose and you let go of it fly’s in the air and it is like flyboarding because flyboarding fly’s in the air.

  10. I think fly boarding is a jetpack that requires water and a jet ski to get the water to fill the jetpack so it can keep on going. I think that fly boarding would be an amazing type of water activity that can be used for people that could go on summer holidays if they’re rich enough to actually pay for it for the whole thing if you want it. I think this wouldn’t be a dangerous activity because there are a lot of a people around to support you if you don’t come back up from the surface and there are life jackets on you if you slip from the jetpack or something like that. I think fly boarding works because they put a pipe on the jet ski and the pipe goes into the jet ski then the water thats in the jet ski goes into the hose then the water from the hose goes into the jetpack then the water from the jetpack gets released back into the water creating pressure from the jetpack which makes you go upwards and then you’re flying then you can start doing tricks like backflips and front flips.

  11. I think flyboarding is like you are on a pad that is like a jetpack but it squirts out water. I think it would be awesome because you will be up in the air and you are able to control were it is going a little bit. I think it is dangerous because you might fall off and the board can loose control easier because you’re not on the board and you could get hurt when you crash into the ground or the board could crash into you. I think flyboarding works by the water is trying to break free and because there is so much water wanting to break free it is coming out faster and with more force so that is what makes you move because of the power of the water coming out.

  12. Fly boarding
    What do you think Fly boarding is?
    I think that fly boarding is a water thing that you use hoses to get lifted with water off the ocean water.

    -Do you think it would be dangerous? Why or Why not?
    I think that fly boarding would be dangerous because if you are near the shore and you start fly boarding, while landing you could break your neck because you are too close to the shore and there isn’t enough water to surround you.

    -How do you think Fly boarding works?
    I think that fly boarding is using a hose, a jet ski and a board to make the fly boarding work. I think that you have to connect the hose with the Jet Ski and I think that there has to be a place to the water to go through to get into the hose.

  13. I think that fly boarding is a hose is connected to a jet ski on the back there is a hole on the back on of it and it pumping water and pushing the people into the air and allowing them to go into the air.
    I think it will be very scary to go fly boarding and it could be very fun at the same time as it being very scary but mostly fun and exciting and sometimes it can be dangerous in many different ways to be hurt.
    I think it will be dangerous because if you fall of and if the hose comes off what will happen then you could die or you can be unconscious and not be a good thing and you might have to go to the hospital and die.
    I think that fly boarding is worked by the hose and it powers up the water and it comes out of a thing at the end of these things it comes out of a thing and it has it on the feet.
