 Thursday, March 09, 2017

Hydro-Fest 2017  

After an overwhelmingly successful event at Hydro-Fest 2016, the talk immediately after the event turned to what the plans were for Hydro-Fest 2017 (some of the hydroflight athletes were even hoping for another event at Lake Spring Mountain before the end of the summer…little did they know the work it takes to pull off an event of that magnitude). Our goal was to schedule Hydro-Fest 2017 for another early June weekend like we did last year, but with everythi ...(READ MORE)

Tandem Jetovator Video!

 Monday, October 10, 2016

 

One amazing adaptation that Jetovator has come up with is the first factory designed tandem hydroflight device. It's tandem Jetovator jetbike is capable of carrying 2 riders with a combined weight of 400lbs. It can be controlled by either the front or rear rider and can also be ridden solo, when you can't find a partner...but I doubt you'd have to try very hard to find someone willing to go for a ride with you! The new high flow custom u-pipe included with the Tandem ...(READ MORE)

Hydroflight Device Comparison - Flyboard vs Jetblade vs X-Board vs Jetdeck

Dean O'Malley - Wednesday, March 15, 2017

Jetboard Comparison Matrix

 

The hydroflight industry has grown quite a bit since its inception in 2012 and now there are numerous manufacturers making a variety of different jetboards with an assortment of features. In order to help you determine the right board for you, we've compiled this side-by-side jetboard comparison matrix, which shows the facts, figures and features of each of the major board options: The Flyboard Legend and Pro from Zapata Racing, the Jetblade from X-Jets , the X-Board from FlyDive and the Jetdeck from Defy Waterflight

 

The good thing is that you can't really go wrong with any of these boards, but sometimes having too many choices can be overwhelming, so hopefully seeing all of the boards side-by-side will help narrow down your choices. While each rider may have different considerations when choosing a jetboard, we tried to include the big ones, such as hose length and material, board weight, warranty and, of course, price, but we also wanted to include some of the lesser-known characteristics, such as total number of parts, shipping method and bearing system. 

 

We compiled this information from the manufacturers' websites and from various industry sources. We also sent direct inquiries to the manufacturer reps to confirm the information (please keep in mind, not all manufacturers responded to our inquiries). If you see something you feel may be incorrect or could be clarified or if you'd like us to add any additional fields to the matrix, please leave us a comment and we'll do our best to update in a timely manner. 

 

If you have questions about the specific products from any of these hydroflight manufacturers, please do not hesitate to reach out to them directly. For more information on the specific products Jetpack America offers, please refer to the Jetboard page in our Online Shop.
