Your Jet Ski®, One System, Four Flying Devices

Unlock the power to fly! Initial installation takes 1-1.5 hours and then you can use your personal water craft as a hydroflight power house. The mechanics are simple and once you have an adaptor kit and hose you can connect to any one of Zapata’s hydroflyers in seconds.

Your PWC

Nearly all models of PWC are compatible with our HydroFlyers. Install and get flying.

Adapter Kit & Hose

Water expelled from the PWC is harnessed and channelled to the hydroflyer.


The hydroflyer directs the flow to give lift. The adaptor kit and hose connects with all of Zapata’s hydroflyers.

Ready to Fly

You’re all connected. Now you can fly!

Made for Everyone

From teens to adults, the Flyboard Pro is the next generation of personal watersports equipment made to be enjoyed by everyone. Whether mastering a new skill or having fun with the family, the Flyboard® will have you flying in no time! Check out young Austin (age 9) practicing his skills. His dad, Jason, tells us:

There's nothing quite like the bonding experience of Flyboarding. The confidence and self esteem it gave both of my children at young ages has been remarkable. If you can conquer independent human flight, you can conquer anything.

We have all your flying dreams covered and once you install a PWC Connection Kit to your Jet Ski®, it will quick connect to any of Zapata's hydroflyers.


Set to be released later this year, FlyRide® is the latest invention from legendary innovator, Franky Zapata.
