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.
