LINDSAY MCQUEEN ON HIS FLYBOARD A MAN WALKS ON WATER, COMPLETING A THOUSAND ACROBATICS

When he met Franky Zapata, inventor of the Flyboard, Lindsay McQueen (Villajoyosa, 1979) immediately fell in love with it and wanted to become fully dedicated to experimenting with this futuristic device that flies over the sea. The Flyboard is an airboard that combines surfboarding, waterskiing and jetskiing. High-pressure jets of water propel the user up to a height of 15 metres, the Flyboard allowing you to “fly” over the surface of the water. “As soon as I found out about it, I signed an exclusive contract for Spain and began to seriously dedicate myself to this discipline”, says McQueen, the national champion, and third at the recent Qatar World Cup. Through his company Yacht Watersports, he rents out the Flyboard to third parties; to be able to do this, he had to convince both legislators and insurance companies to have the use of this device regulated in Spain. “Our most popular activities are the Flyboard and Hoverboard , letting users fly over the sea. We also have the JetPack and the Wakeboard, which was created in the ‘80s in California and continues to be popular in our waters.” McQueen insists that anyone can enjoy using his aquatic gizmos, whatever their level of physical fitness. Dressed in an LED suit for his show, the ‘Flying Light Man’, set to a backdrop of dance music, McQueen is a true aquatic virtuous whose pirouettes inhabit the eternal dream of flying. ”


From his company Flyboard Ibiza, Lindsay McQueen offers aquatic shows for private events.
