Bài khóa - Transcript

Surfing down under as you’ve never seen it before.

Flyboard, invented by a Frenchman last year, is catching on in Australia.

The board is attached to a jet ski by a hose. The water pressure allows the pilot to hover up to 10 metres in the air.

The dive would make a dolphin jealous.

With his feet, the rider controls direction and with his hands, he keeps the board stable.

Ván được gắn với một xe máy lướt sóng bằng một vòi rồng. Áp lực nước khiến người lái có thể bay lên cao tới 10 mét.

Việc ngụp lặn khiến cá heo cũng phải ghen tị.

Người lái điều khiến hướng đi bằng chân và dùng tay giữ thăng bằng của ván.
