Welcome to the Pro Hydroflight Profile page of Ben Merrell. Ben is a professional Hydroflight athlete from Destin, Florida. H2RO began covering Ben when he was part of a very strong 2013 Flyboard World Cup team from the United States and flew his way onto the podium with a 3rd place finish. His signature trick, consecutive HUGE 30+ foot back dolphin dives, was in full effect in Qatar and it didn’t hurt that he was the only successful fisherman of all the World Cup competitors… check out Ben’s 2013 Finals highlight video below to see what we mean.

After the 2014 North American Flyboard Championship in Toronto, Ontario CANADA, Ben signed on to fly a new product by Stratospheric Industries called the Jetblade. This board had independent feet and it was Ben’s official Jetblade videos that introduced the world to some of the unique spins that can be achieved on a split board.
Read our interview with Ben where he talks about this transition and his thoughts on the world of Hydroflight sports.
Shawn Galiotto also spoke with Ben Merrell as part of the Business of Hydroflight series and here you can learn more about Power Up Watersports and their work in Destin Florida.
