Also Back This Year By Popular Demand: Fireworks and Flyboarding Demonstration
"Flyboarding" has taken the watersports world by storm since 2011, when it was developed in France. Participants use a jet ski to push water through a hose and out the base of a device strapped to the Flyboarder's feet, allowing them to fly through the air in Ironman fashion or dive through the water like a dolphin. If that weren't exciting enough, last year's demonstration was performed at night, using a Flyboarder in an LED suit.
The grand finale will be a fireworks show of spectacular proportions. The show will be produced by Pyrotecnico, the powerhouse behind such fantastic events as the Orange Bowl and Colonial Williamsburg's Grand Illumination.
