AMERICA’S GOT TALENT Flyboard with Aquabae
THANK YOU FOR YOUR VOTES!
H2RO would like to thank everyone who voted for Damone Rippy on America’s Got Talent! It was a great run and we couldn’t be more proud of this young man. Would have been nice to unleash the LED light suit and maybe even the Hoverboard on this stage but you’ll just have to keep your eyes on DR and see what’s next!
UPDATE: Damone Rippy makes the TOP 36 on America’s Got Talent!
Now America gets to VOTE!
Pro Flyboarder Damone Rippy has flew his way into the Top 36 of America’s Got Talent! After speaking with Gretchen Vance about the plans they have for the following rounds (should he get voted through) it’s all very cool and exciting. AMERICA we encourage you to take the time to vote for DR and give us all the chance to see what he’s got in store!
For our American readers check out Damone’s AGT profile page and video.
We new about this opportunity a long time ago but as usual we were told to keep things quiet until the television promo began to roll out to launch the season. This will put the H2RO Hydroflight World Ranked #2 athlete in front of millions of Americans and our sport could not be better represented. Sounds like this 10th anniversary season is focused on extreme talent and unusual acts so it should be awesome to watch and Flyboarding is certainly both.
Damone Rippy – Top 36 in New York

I hope you’re VOTING RIPPY !!!

A look behind the scenes during the taping of Damone Rippy’s first episode on America’s Got Talent.
Sitting atop the hottest new sport on the planet with his good looks and great on camera personality Damone is sure to win votes and do very well on the show. We’ve had some big media exposure recently as a sport but it has been focused on LED light suits and event flying. This will be a great opportunity to show the world how far our top athletes skills have progressed and the amazing things they can pull 50 ft in the air.
We look forward to seeing the competitor profile footage they shot in Texas with Damone and how the flying comes off on camera. Last year Franky Zapata went far in France Has Incredible Talent both flying the Flyboard Legend in pools for the judges and then transitioning during the top eight (I think) to his new Air Flyboard.
Damone Rippy just successfully defended his North American Flyboard Championship title and is now getting stoked for June 16th when his first episode of America’s Got Talent will air. We look forward to learning more about the experience to date and the journey that this platform will launch for him. Prepare to have Flyboarding flip into every living room in the United States and what that will mean for the ‘Safety Cone’ and his peers. New hashtag for Damone seems to be #AquaBae … enjoy the ride my friend.
AMERICA’S GOT TALENT – JUNE 16th
Moments after flying spectacularly for the show Damone Rippy and Gretchen Vance take a deep breath and smile. Tons to smile about in their world right now. H2RO is totally stoked to see how it all plays out and wishes Damone the best on this epic adventure.
