What do you get when a jet ski racer decides to fly like a bird and dive like a dolphin? The Fly Board, that’s what!
The Fly Board has a hose connected to a jet ski to get propulsion through air and water. In reality, it’s a diving, flying, power house of pure heart-pounding fun.
When you book a Fly Board session at Gold Coast Watersports, you’ll begin with a safety briefing and our staff will kit you out with a wetsuit, helmet and lifejacket.
Falling: If it is your first time, you will fall into the water before you get the hang of the board. Persistence is key, so communicate with your instructor, keep trying, and you will fly!
Flying: Position your feet on your Fly Board as if you are standing on the ground, lock your knees and keep your back straight with arms relaxed by your side. You are flight ready! Once you are out of the water, lean on your toes to drive forward and lean on your heels to drive backwards.
Turning: Turn your head toward the direction you wish to go, drop your shoulder and lean on your leg with the opposite leg bent. Students should rotate around the jet ski and keep a safe working distance of 5-7m from the jet ski. If the hose becomes fully extended between the jet ski and the Fly Board, you won’t gain height.
Flying High: At a safe distance from the jet ski, remain stationary with feet flat. Do not drive forward or turn. Your Fly Board instructor only allows students to fly high if it is safe to do so.
Diving: You can learn to dive after you have mastered flying. When you dive, your hands must come up slightly behind your head, and your legs and posture must remain straight. Dive vertically into the water with feet pointing toward the sky. Always dive away from the jet ski and listen carefully to your instructor.
Back dives: For experienced fly boarders only and should only be attempted under the direction of an instructor. Always dive away from the jet ski. Lean on your heels, bend back, look where you want to go. Dive with a straight posture and feet pointed at the sky.
The Fly Board is a singular experience that cannot be duplicated on any other craft and best of all, our friendly, experienced staff at Gold Coast Watersports are confident they can get most people doing basic manoeuvres in under ten minutes.

Lovely friendly staff and a fabulous day out! Parasailing and stand up paddle boarding were super. Highly recommended company!
Hubby and I wanted to do some kind if sightseeing of the Gold Coast and what better way than on their beautiful waters? We did the 1 hour Jet Ski tour and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The instructor was very detailed about what to expect, what to do, what NOT to do etc and we followed his lead. I decided to let hubby do all the driving in the end and just held on for dear life lol! It was breathtaking watching the scenery go by as you're powering through the waters (coz Jet Ski only like one speed - FAST!). Definitely recommend to anyone who likes things a little more exciting and different than a bus or boat tour. Would definitely do this again though I want to be in the driver's seat next time ;-)
WOW! So fantastic! Would highly recommend these guys, so accommodating!! :) Worth the visit to the Gold Coast for sure!
We did the jet skiing and the parasailing with these guys we had a great time they are a great team the guys that took us out to do the parasailing were great guys they made our experience so much better with their humour and were very friendly and informative.
The driver did an excellent job and his offsider was entertaining. As a person that is scared of heights I found the experience to be ok which was surprising. Have got much enjoyment from the experience and also by looking at the photos of the experience. I would so go for it, it's good fun.
We did the jet skiing and buggy tour with Gold Coast Watersports and it was AWESOME! The water and the beach were beautiful, the team was very helpful and friendly and very conscious of how the 3 of us were doing following behind. Would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone looking for a fun, high speed, exciting morning!!
I'd never ridden a Jet Ski before and opted for the 30 min Jet Ski hire. The staff/instructors were really helpful and explained everything in detail about the Jet Ski and then let me go on my adventure! Really good adrenaline rush...highly recommend it. Great views of the gold coast skyline too.
Have recently taken this flight after receiving a Gift Voucher and Highly recommend the experience.Wonderful, Friendly and Fun Crew…Would Absolutely do it again!
