When Water Sports Take Flight

Flyboarding in Bermuda

The flyboard attaches to your feet at one end, and to the jet end of a personal watercraft (PWC) at the other. Using jet thrust as propulsion, it lets you fly through the air and water.

You may have seen celebs such as Rihanna trying out this amazing new watersport recently. Everyone who tries it has the same thing to say: “Awesome!”

Off the Water

When he’s not out on the water enjoying the island's full range of water sports, one of Mike’s favourite spots to get a bite to eat is the Somerset Country Squire in Somerset Village on the island's West End. Don't worry – this easy-going pub offers plenty of water views.

He says Bermuda’s kind of like Cheers. “You go to that place where everybody knows your name.”
