KELOWNA – Two members of a national flyboarding team produced a video shot on Okanagan Lake that shows how far the sport has come in a short time.

Flyboarding is a relatively new sport that uses a jet ski motor to pressurize water leading to a board strapped to the feet.

It’s been described as the closest thing possible to wearing an Iron Man suit. Now a team made up of ten members have perfected moves that would make Tony Stark jealous.

During the two and a half minute video Mike Prince and Curtis Pangrass show off multiple flips, corkscrews, dives and more both during the day, and at night wearing glowing suits.

The video was released to the Team CanFly website and YouTube last week.
