Heck I don’t even know what it is.

Its where you stand on a high pressure jet of water and it shoots up yer...well...its sposed to shoot you in the air...theres a tv commercial with a wife watching her husband get it right in the ol keister b4 he crashes...I wouldn't do it, but I might pay a buck or two to watch other fools do it..as long as I have enuf fluids, it could get even stupider than it already looks...

Looks like it could be fun but I would think it requires a fairly fit person with good balance and reflexes. I also suspect that the injury rate is fairly high as well. Impacting the water while being propelled by that might not result in bad injuries but I can foresee some sprained or pulled muscles and tendons.

Not if you're sitting someplace comfortable and watching it...course you could get tennis elbow or some such....

 

The tennis elbow may be from trying to lift too much weight.

Might I suggest that rather than a 16 oz can of beer, you switch to more reps with an 8 oz cocktail?Big Smile

Ill take that under advisement...however, I made that switch a looong time ago.. my drinks weigh less than 8 oz....i'm old school...ice counts...hheheheh

 

I never saw one of these before, or heard of it, so I was surprised when this dude showed up next to the Seven Seas Navigator. We were somewhere in the south Caribbean coming up from the Amazon, in 2012. Shortly after I took this, I went ashore, someone told me the harbor police showed and put the bums rush on the guy. But later in the afternoon, just before we sailed, he came again and really put on a show.  

 

So no one has seen an excursion for this yet?  No place to use my wingsuit on this trip so thought this might be fun.

 

well yes...GOOGLING "cruise ship flyboarding" shows several lines including Carnival offering it...dunno about wing suits tho...that anything like wingnuts??

 

Nope. I think I will stay away and live a little longer.
