Extreme water sports in Dubai
There is a large choice of entertainment in Dubai including different water sports. Here you can try jet skiing, kayaking, SUP-surfing, wakeboarding, flyboarding and new unusual activity – jetpack flying.
Jetpack is a backpack with a built-in motor with a water jet, which is usually connected to a jet ski. By pushing out water under high pressure, a person with such a jetpack behind his shoulders can rise up to 20 meters above the water surface. Training takes no more than 15 minutes. Even children from 12 years old can operate the jetpacks. The only condition is that a person's weight must be more than 40 kg. Once you understand how to control it, you can immediately fly in any direction, at any height, at any speed - the operation system will help you.
options and prices
If you want to fly like a bird and hover over the water, you should try jetpack flying. The height of the flight depends on your courage and desire to get an adrenaline rush. There are several options of these extreme entertainments: jetpack, flyboard, jetovator and hoverboard. The movement is carried out due to the reactive force of the water flow pumped by the engine of the connected jet ski. A flyboard is jet boots, a jetovator is a flying jet ski and a hoverboard is a jet board. As these activities are not well-known yet, only few tourists have tried them.
