Flyboard Pro Series
Flyboard® is a Trademark of Zapata Racing
The 2015 Flyboard Pro Series looks poised to take Hydroflight sports to the next level. From the mind of Zapata Racing CEO Franky Zapata his newest Flyboard employs materials that make it not only look futuristic but lighter and stronger than its metal counterparts as well.
The new 2015 Flyboard Pro Series has some awesome features and the energy around the release of this board is serious. Demand is high so you’ll want to get your orders in immediately. Contact your local distributor for information. Kits run around $5000 with the 2015 Flyboard Add On around $2,900. With this new addition the Flyboard Legend (name given to 2014 model) will see a price reduction and likely become a great option for many new Hydrosport enthusiasts.
Are we going to finally see a successful Flyboard front flip? H2RO will work to learn as much as we can about the new products and how they will influence our flying and post that information here as it becomes available.
Update: July 25th: Damone Rippy and Steve Palma took the Pro Series out for their first flight recently in France and looks like triples and cork dolphins were immediately in the trick repertoire.

Flyboard Pro Series Features
Futuristic Design… definitely. The 2015 Flyboard takes everything about the Legend to the next level.
Friends in high places. Looks like Zapata Racing’s military connections have contributed materials that allow for lighter and stronger to become a reality.
Flyboard Pro Series Vented Deck Plate is lighter weight while allowing water to flow freely through the board. More info on the advantages to come?
2015 Flyboard unleashes it’s version of independent feet going with spring loaded sides that allow flyers to execute quick spins or rotations while maintaining complete control.
Flyboard Pro Series has adjustable nozzles and this is why the first Flyboard front flip might now be possible. H2RO saw video of Franky Zapata coming much closer to landing a Flyboard front flip many months ago and it was noted that the spray seemed to be ‘different’ in the video. Now we see what that was and I’m sure it’s going to open up Pro Flyboarders imaginations to an array of never-before-seen tricks. H2RO also believes that the angle might be adjustable from a button on the new ZR wireless EMK but we need to learn more and confirm.
Again taking the equipment to new levels of efficiency, Zapata Racing delivers adjustable nozzle rings on the 2015 Flyboard Pro Series for pressure control to adapt to the horsepower of the PWC.
