Flying Over Water
This July 24, 2013, photo, Rocky Mountain Flyboard instructor Jordan Wayment flips as he demonstrates the flyboard, on the Jordanelle Reservoir, at Jordanelle State Park, Utah. The Flyboard, which looks like a small snowboard attached to a hose, can propel you 45 feet in the air using water pumped from a personal watercraft like a Jet Ski to the base of the board. New devices that pump water fast enough to make people defy gravity are drawing thrill-seekers eager to try the next new watersport, but Hawaii fishermen, scientists and state officials are questioning their safety and how they may affect fish, coral and other fragile natural resources in the islands.
