Check out jetlev.com...
(At the link you can find out more info on how to buy one or order one for your resort/company.)



The jet pack in the video runs off of water. It's the first of its kind. The tube you see attached to it, that goes into the water, goes into a gas powered small boat that follows whenever the jet pack pilot is flying (if you look close in the video you can see it).

The jet pack itself is super safe. It's actually approved for the water by the coast guard, and there is nothing illegal about it
You need to be at least 18 years old to fly it. It takes about 30 minutes to an hour of training, and then you're set. These water jet packs are going on sale very soon, and you can contact the company to get on their waiting list. You can contact them here www.jetlev.com... And you can find out a lot more about them on the website.

The jet pack is able to fly purely by the volume of water that comes out of the two hoses that are attached to it. It shoots out 10 times more water volume then a fire hydrant does. You can stick your hand right where the water comes out, and you won't get hurt at all, as you can see several times in the video.

They need to offer a fishing attachment so if you suck up some fish they get filtered out to the side into nets,so when you get back to land you can grab your 10fish you caught while out crusing around lol. Now that would actually be a good way to go fishing haha, 'why you putting on that jetpack' "EXTREME FISHING!!!!!" hahaha

My god! After about a minute of that music and the split-second chops of the video, I had enough.

What happens when your motor quits and you have a 50 pounds of equipment on your back and are several feet in the air? You make like a rock?

OK. So I was not impressed and felt somewhat suckered into watching an advertisement for a very expensive tool.

Is this another toy for the elites?

If the guy with the jetpack doesn't control it too well, the folks in the boat will get mighty wet!

However for the same reason it would make a great fire extinguisher if he can control it and the boat catches fire.

It looks like it would be fun for maybe 30 minutes and then get boring, that's probably why there are so many edits in the video, to make it look more exciting than it is.

That was the coolest thing I've seen on water since Fonzie jumped the shark.

Peace
