Xtremox Flyboard – More than just flying
Inclusiveness. Definitely the most inspiring videos, photos and articles from the world of sport are when athletes bring the unique thrill and excitement of their particular sport to individuals who may never get a chance to experience it. Obviously the joy has hooked the athlete for life so what could be more fulfilling than sharing it with the world.
On Sunday June 28th, 2015 Anthony Martinez Yague (aka ‘The Bullfighter’) from Xtremox Flyboard Valencia not only put on a Flyboarding exhibition for more than 200 children with special needs but also made disabilities disappear as he brought the gift of Hydroflight to some very excited youngsters.
The opportunity would have not been possible without the tremendous work of two non-profit associations. Assido is an association dedicated to the treatment, support and care for people living with Down Syndrome. Aidemar develops programs and activities for families who have children with disabilities. Both of these wonderful organizations overcame any and all obstacles to provide this once in a lifetime opportunity to their families.
H2RO is very proud to share these images sent to us by Anthony as he shares his passion and a flight on a Flyboard with these amazing kids. The joy was completely reciprocal as Anthony gave the children an experience they’ll never forget and they gave him back much love and appreciation. The smiles on each and every face says it all.
One special young man named Ramon, who lives his life with limited mobility, took to the sky and loved every minute of it.
Desde luego el momento del día mi amigo Ramon un niño que jamás se levantara de una cama hoy a podido volar y ser el auténtico héroe y protagonista. Campeón !!!!!!

The children also enjoyed Jet Ski rides, boat rides and more activities. A magical day and something that H2RO hopes to see more and more of around the world.
With Jetavation Inc’s Freedom Flyer providing people with all kinds of physical challenges an opportunity to soar under their own control and many in the Hydroflight community showing organizations how safe and thrilling our activities can be we expect the dream of flight to find its way into the memories and social media streams of many more deserving people.
