Flyboard takes off on Australia's Gold Coast

Help

A water-propelled jetpack called a flyboard has been put through its paces on Australia's Gold Coast, allowing users to dive like dolphins.

The device attaches to any jetski and the pressure of the water allows the user to fly up to 10 metres above the water.

Flyboarders use their feet and weight to control their direction.
