Forget surfboarding, forget snowboarding; airboarding is the new big thing.

On the plus side, you can do it anywhere. But unfortunately there’s only one example of the kit you need in the world and it takes more than 100 hours of practice to fly.

The Flyboard Air was developed by Zapata Racing based on previous water-powered models.
