The Surf Channel recently ventured down to Baja California Sur, Mexico for the Los Cabos Open of Surf featuring the World Surf League QS Women’s 6000 event. While in town for the competition, we of course made time to surf and check out a few other must-experience activities.
One of the highlights of our trip was braving the Hydro Flyboard jet pack device. Located at Marina Puerto Los Cabos (just minutes away from the famed Zippers surf spot), the Hydro Flyboard owners Kristian, Mafer, and their sidekick Petunia (the most adorable petite Chihuahua that mans the dock while your are in flight) are some of the friendliest people in Los Cabos, and are there waiting upon your arrival to walk you step-by-step through the process.
Kristian is the personal trainer of the Hydro Flyboard excursion, and he does an amazing job of preparing you both in and out of the water for the safest flying experience possible. The best part is, anyone can do this. There are no physical requirements that suggest you need prior experience in any type of boardsport to fly, you don’t even need to know how to swim! This comes in handy when traveling with a group, it won’t matter who tags along on your trip, they can still participate.
When it comes to the actually flying, this is a MUST experience activity in Los Cabos. It’s not like any other type of sport or activity that we’ve ever done, and it’s easy to learn quickly. Within 20 minutes you will be flying high above the water level, even diving under water and shooting back out! It is so much fun to learn, and gives you a sense of accomplishment learning a new, rapidly growing sport.
