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.
