Flyboarding is so perfect for the BIG SCREEN that it was only a matter of time before Hollywood embraced the sport.
We all just saw Leonardo DiCaprio flyboarding for the first time in Ibiza, Spain and that’s great but what is really exciting is the fact the sport has been embraced by Hollywood producers and is going to be part of our big screen action very soon. We’ve also got music celebs getting their flight on below.

Ben Kingsley and Ryan Reynolds star in this provocative psychological science fiction thriller. Watch closely and you’ll see some Flyboarding.
TEEN BEACH MOVIE 2
The sequel is set months after surfer sweethearts McKenzie (“Mack”) and Brady return from a summer adventure that transported them into Brady’s favorite 1960s beach party movie, Wet Side Story, only to receive a surprise real-world visit from Lela, Tanner, Butchy and their other newfound surfer and biker buddies.
When I was recently talking with Peter Hendra he couldn’t get into details but said that he had just done some Flyboarding in Australia for a 30 million dollar action movie featuring a very well know action star.

Ten Walls – Walking with Elephants released their music video filled with flying action. Another 3.5 million views of the most fun you can have on and above the water.
There was also the sick demo that Franky Zapata did for Tom Cruise as part of his film Jack Reacher on a Spanish TV show. Tom Cruise seemed very impressed mouthing the word’s “Oh Sh$t” when Franky rose out of the water to his max height. So will it be the hero, the villain or both who take to the air and Flyboard in these upcoming Hollywood Blockbusters? Likely will fly with no arms…because you can’t fire a machine gun with the arms on right. I can see huge dolphin dives to escape incoming bullets and flying straight up, grabbing onto the bottom of a helicopter, and flying off holding on as the hose snaps in half.
How would you like to see the Flyboard used in a film? Dream up a scene and share it with us in the comments.
