Flyboarding experiences are now available at the National Diving & Activity Centre (NDAC), near Chepstow.

To Purchase a Flyboarding Experience please call 07703 795 053 or visit the Big Crazy Website

Flyboarding is an innovative and unique water sport, new to the UK. It allows the participant to fly over water, propelled into the air via a jet-ski at the end of a 10 metre hose.

Within minutes you can be hovering above the surface of the clear blue, fresh waters of the NDAC Quarry.

This Flyboarding activity is provided by the experienced team from Big Crazy. It is exciting, fun packed and suitable for anyone that wants a new adrenalin filled thrill.

Rather than read about it, here are the Flyboards being reviewed on the Channel 5's The Gadget Show.
