All you have to do is keep balance, and the flyboard does the rest. Once you've learnt the basics, try your hand at some cool tricks like pirouettes, 360-turns and moving back and forward.

The guide was very well informed, interesting, helpful and cheerful, without being “in your face”. I had arrived at the tour meeting point by rental bike, and at the end of the tour he insisted on accompanying me to where I had parked it to make sure it was still there (it was!)

Manuel was an excellent guide for our first visit to Las Palmas. He showed us a great variety of interesting aspects of the city and answered all our questions. Using taxis and walking was a perfect combination to see the city. Thoroughly recommended.

The guide was very nice and friendly, he made the tour very enjoyable. The equipment was in good condition and the place is very close to the beach. An experience to repeat a thousand times.
Lovely family experience. It seems incredible everything that can be seen doing this activity on the seabed, so shallow and so close to the shore. Super recommended!
Great activity. The girl was aware of us all the time and explained in detail all the things and fish that were around us. I recommend 100%
