i was spending a quiet sunny birthday looking over the sea when i was greeted by an amazing spectacle!IMGP0045The man supported by just a jet of water displayed amazing balance. Before long he dove gracefully into the water then rose all over again. There were corkscrews and back flips too to marvel at.IMGP0044The operation was managed by another man in a small, not too noisy water scooter.   IMGP0047

Lots to wonder at and discuss about this new phenomenon. A few days later I was able to read in the local paper that the fly board is one of only 120 in Australia and a local farmer had bought it on eBay less than half price, but with lots of regulation ensuring safety of operation.
