About US

At Extreme Hydro Flight, we offer clients the opportunity  to pilot our state of the art Fly Board equipment under the supervision and control of our Certified Flight Instructors. 

The flight instructors perform one on one instruction prior to flight. They also provide in-flight instruction during the flight via wireless two way communication with the pilot while controlling the thrust of the fly board. Each flight is custom tailored to the pilot’s age and skill level ensuring a once in a lifetime experience that is thrilling, enjoyable and above all else is safe.

While one person flies anywhere from 5 to 15 feet above the water’s surface, their friends and family can kick back, relax. They can listen to some tunes and watch from the water on one of our luxury pontoon boats piloted by certified/licensed boat captains.

Questions & Answers

Q#1:What makes you fly and who controls it?

The wave-runner acts as a water pump that is connected to the commercial hydroflight board with wake board boots which the customer uses to fly.  The person on the wave-runner controlling the thrust is a certified flight instructor with the training and experience to safely control your flight.  We shadow throttle our customers when they are flying.  What this means is that if you are losing your balance slowly, we will slowly lower the throttle and the rider flying into the water, and start over again.  When someone loses the balance quickly, we splash them into the water quickly so that we may restart and get right back up flying as well.  After going into the water, we have the rider get onto their stomach with legs straight and arms in front of them, the Super Man position, and prepare to fly again.  However after 10 minutes, usually steps van be streamlined to go in and out of the water while never even getting your shoulders wet!

Q#2:Do I need to know how to swim?

YES, our water sport is intimately tied to the water and swimming is a pre requisite.

Q#3:What is the Minimum and Maximum Weight?

100 lbs minimum weight.  There is no maximum weight restriction.  People over 375 lbs have gotten up and happily checked it off their bucket list.  Others have returned to do it again as it's such a thrill.

Q#4:Do I need to have tried other sports that require balance like skiing, snowboarding, water skiing, surfing, skate boarding, yoga, martial arts?

 NO, there is no required list of required skills to do this, however experience in any of the above can enhance your learning curve.   

Q#4A: Is it hard to balance?

Quite simply, it is not hard to balance once you get it. In the first 10 minutes our staff to gets most everyone up and flying.  After breaking the ice, we get into the surprisingly little movements it takes to fly, and fly well.  Then you are flying around and exploring a whole new world.

Q#5: Can I just rent the equipment and do it myself?

No way,we rent kayaks and paddle boards for do it yourselfers.  The training and experience needed to do this operation safely, and create a positive experience every time, takes a great deal of skill by our instructors.  There is no legitimate hydro-flight operation in the world that would hand over the keys.

Q#6:Can I buy one?

Extreme Hydro Flight is a North East dealer for the DEFY Water Flight board and have 2-Axis and 3-Axis units with hoses, clamps, U-pipe and mounting plate adapters (Yamaha) in stock and ready to ship.  Mostly this is for commercial applications, however we can sell privately with mandatory training.  However we mostly sell to commercial operations and train hydroflight instructors commercially.

Q#7:If I buy this privately, will my waverunner insurance cover it?

ABSOLUTELY NOT, Waverunner insurance policies now have stipulations that it not be used for hydro flight sports.  Therein lies the issue.  The truth is that if you let someone use your equipment or hurt your friends or family, they will likely say that they aren't suing you, and that it's the insurance company they are suing.  Leave it to the pro's unless you are looking to become a professional hydroflight athlete which is a different world entirely that we can set up for the right people.

Q#9:What is the youngest age to fly?

Minimum age 13?

Q#10:Is there a waiver we have to sign?

YES.  You can see a copy of our electronic smartwaiver below.  All minors must have their parents or legal guardian sign the smartwaiver.  We keep laminated copies on our boats, waverunners, and at our kayak and paddleboard rental area.

Q#11: Who has to sign the smart waiver?

Everyone must sign the smart waiver who is going to be boarding our pontoon boats, going on any of our chartered cruises, or chartered bass fishing trips, doing hydroflight, or renting kayaks and paddleboards.  We suggest this be signed ahead of time and confirmed by email prior to arrival, however we can have it signed through our secure server on site.

All drone video can be emailed using a link to Dropbox that you can download ypur video from and/or place on your memory stick at the end of your flight.  Profesionally edited DRONE VIDEO PACKAGES, can be emailed to you for download via Dropbox usually within 24 hours.  We have had only positive reviews thus far from our customers.

Videos can be shot in 4K, however the video size, and download time, combined with dramatically longer editing times is more expensive, and we discuss the price on a case by case basis.  The raw unedited 4K video footage is an option, and ideal for you to edit yourself.
