Try a New Watersport with Water Jet Packs
San Diego is a place that is known for the best watersports in the nation. The people of San Diego are always coming up with new ways to try bigger and better things; one such thing is the new water jet pack. This innovative new water sport has taken San Diego by storm and is one of the only places in the country that you can try it out.
What is a Water Jet Pack?
A water jet pack is a new way to enjoy the water. Participants are strapped onto a backpack-type harness that has two handles in the front for control. The back of the harness has a small water jet that attaches to a large hose that runs down to a jetski. When the jetski runs, water is propelled through the hose and out the water jet, giving the participant enough lift to rise out of the water and into the air.
How Do You Describe the Flight?
While there is no similar activity to San Diego water jet packs, the best way to describe it is a combination between jet skiing, parasailing, and even skydiving. The water will push you into the air and you can dive back down to the water at any time you want. Some participants use this action as a dolphin like effect of propelling you out of the water then immediately diving back down. There is no other experience quite like it.
Info about the Flight
Jetpack America in San Diego is the premiere company for experiencing water jet pack flights in San Diego. Check out their website at http://www.jetpackamerica.com/ to get started, and be sure to use the code “710BR” to save on your water jetpack rental!
There is a mandatory informational session that shows you how the entire flight system works, safety techniques, and part of your flight time will be a brief safety instruction by the onsite coordinator. Most people are able to fly their first time, and it will take no time at all to learn some of the more advanced moves. Since most of the work is done by the pressure of the hose, participants will not need excess strength or dexterity to complete the flight. This also means that people with disabilities can also learn to use the water jet pack system.
Flying has been a dream of most people and we would love to help you plan a trip to accomplish that dream. If you are looking to plan a trip to San Diego, please consider one of our vacation rentals to help make the trip even more enjoyable.
