Flyboards have become extremely popular since they were first released in 2012. This innovative device allows people to hover up to 50 feet above the water with a jet pack attached to their feet. In today’s article, we will cover everything you need to know about buying a flyboard and and how much they cost.
How Much Does a Flyboard Cost?
The average cost of a flyboard is $6,625. This includes the hose and all the accessories, including a U pipe to prevent tangling.
While there are multiple vendors that you can buy a flyboard from, we calculated the average price from the top 4 most respected vendors. You can save hundreds of dollars if you buy from the cheapest vendor.
Cheapest place to buy a flyboard
The cheapest place to buy a flyboard is from Jetpack America. They sell flyboard kits for as low as $6,000.
You can buy a flyboard from Jetpack America here. They sell Zapata flyboards, which is the best flyboard brand.
What does a flyboard come with?
The standard flyboard pro kit comes with a pair of bindings, hose, hose bearing, swivel U-pipe, and a quick clip to attach the hose to the jet ski. The only thing you still need to buy is the hose adapter. You must buy the flyboard adapter that matches your jet ski brand.
Where to buy flyboard adapter?
Most flyboard hose adapters cost around $275. The best place to buy the adapter is from Aquatic Aviation.
They sell flyboard adapters for the following jet ski models:
- Kawasaki Ultra
- Kawasaki 15f
If you buy the flyboard kit and the adapter, you will be ready to fly. However, there are also some other flyboard accessories you should consider.
If you plan on buying a flyboard, you should make sure the flyer has a proper helmet and life jacket. You can check out my recommendations here:
If you want to take your flyboard to the next level, you can also buy a dual impellor for your jet ski. This increases the power of your jet ski while also saving gas. Aquatic Aviation sells dual impellors for around $1,000. A dual impellor will help your flyboard go around 10 feet higher.
Lastly, you can also buy a custom hose that is 10 feet longer than the normal hose.
Where to buy cheap, used flyboards?
If you have a tight budget, you also have the option to buy the original Flyboard Legend. The Flyboard legend kit costs around $4,400. However, if you are already going to spend a couple thousand dollars, I suggest you bite the bullet and purchase the pro kit. It is much lighter, which allows the flyboard to go much higher and it is easier for the flyer to control.
You can also try to buy a used flyboard on ebay. They usually cost between $4,000 – $5,000. However, they do not come with a warranty, and you can’t be sure how durable the product is until you buy it and test it out. For this reason, I suggest you buy from one of the respected vendors that we mentioned above.
