    Thumbs up Flyboarding/JetLev

    Today I was just looking at the Amsterdam Manor live webcam for Aruba's weather and I came by this...

    If you're not aware of this new sport here's a great video!

    Red Sail has that now - It's around $159 for 30 minutes and a lesson. You should book prior to your trip I am told - it has been very popular.

    We saw some of the Red Sail folks doing a demo and they made it look fun. They were diving down in the water and shooting back up, something that it looks like you would probably have to be experienced to do. I know they are driving the water for you. Jon had some interest before we went but after seeing it live, he didn't think it was worth the money.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    We have that here in Minneapolis on the lakes as of last summer. Alot of fun to watch. I did see it in Aruba when I was there in April and they were doing it just beyond the buoys at Amsterdam Manor. I have a couple of photos similar to the one posted by qlaval above but I'm still working on my trip report/photos - hope to have those posted in the next couple of days.

    Can't wait to see the pictures to show hubby he is doing this ride this year. I always enjoy your detailed trip reports Amy as well as your beautiful pictures! Looking forward to your report.
