UP, UP AND AWAY
Action Aqua Flight Now Offers a New Way to Fly Above Big Bear Lake
Big Bear Lake, Calif. May 9, 2013 – Action Aqua Flight introduces a new and exciting way for guests to fly above Big Bear Lake. The latest water craze called flyboarding allows riders to soar above the water on a flyboard propelled by a Yamaha Waverunner. The flyboard system is different from comparable jet pack rides because it has a simpler apparatus that makes it easier to learn to fly. Action Aqua Flight located at Big Bear Marina is currently the only operator on a freshwater lake in Southern California offering flyboarding.
“Flyboarding is similar to the devise used in the Ironman movies,” said Belinda Bain, owner operator of Action Aqua Flight, Zipline and Segway Tours. “Now we’re giving you an opportunity to fly around like Ironman!”
A durable industrial-type hose connects the flyboard device to a Waverunner. The flyboard gets its power from the pressure created by the Waverunner that creates enough propulsion to thrust the rider into the air. Flyboard flyers range from five to 15 feet above the water depending on the flyers’ comfort and skill level. The instructor controls the height, and the flyer controls the direction from moving forward, backwards and turns.
“One of the great things about flyboarding is the person flying determines how to move or turn the flyboard,” added Bain. “The person controls the entire flight. Once they get their groove on they can hover like a helicopter, fly forward like an eagle or spin around like a top.”
The high adrenaline activity of hovering over the water is something most people can do. In fact, Action Aqua Flight assures that its guests will fly. If for some reason a participating guest does not fly during the session, then Action Aqua Flight will refund their money.
Action Aqua Flight ensures safety is its number one priority. All instructors are trained and certified in first aid and CPR, and each holds an instruction certification through Boat Education and For Hire. Also, the management staff has lifeguard certification. All participants will learn about safety rules before getting onto the flyboard through a brief safety video and personal instruction from the instructor. Action Aqua Flight supplies its participants with helmets and coastguard-approved life vests. Wetsuits are optional and are supplied free of charge.
The grand opening for Action Aqua Flight is Saturday, May 25 that includes a red-ribbon cutting ceremony, live rock music, complimentary food and beverages, and lots of fun raffle prizes. The grand opening event takes place at Big Bear Marina located at 500 Paine Ct. in Big Bear Lake.
Action Aqua Flight offers daily flights from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. starting May 20, 2013 to October 2013. The cost is $110 for a half hour flight session. The minimum required age to fly is 16 years old. All participants must furnish a valid ID, and a parent/guardian of minors ages 16 and 17 must sign a waiver for the minor. The weight limit is 300 lbs. Reservations must be made in advance by calling 909-366-0890. Guests must arrive 30 minutes before flight time at the Action Tours office located at 652 Pine Knot Ave. Unit 7 in the Big Bear Village. All guests will sign a waiver and watch a brief safety video to receive admission and an authorized wrist band. Once registration is complete participants will be directed over to Big Bear Marina, which is one block away from the office. At Big Bear Marina participants will meet their instructor at the red tent to get fitted to fly above Big Bear Lake.
