Flyboarding record attempt on Kal Lake

Michael Prince’s professional flyboarding team will attempt to break a record today and Thursday

There will be a high-flying attempt to break a record on Kalamalka Lake.

Michael Prince’s professional flyboarding team will attempt to break a record today and Thursday for the most flyboards on Canadian water.

“We will have more than just flyboards but a handful of what are now being called hydroflight devices (jetpack, hoverboard),” said Prince.

A flyboard attaches to a personal watercraft and it provides propulsion through the air and water.

“This whole occasion is being professionally filmed and all of the athletes are professionals as well so it will be a very spectacular event,” said Prince.

Beyond this, seven flyboarders are trying to make it to the World Cup in Dubai this year.

“We are all currently looking for sponsorships to help fund this trip so we can make Canada proud by representing it in December,” said Prince.
