One look at the Flyride™ and there is not much mystery to how it operates. It’s similar to a personal watercraft, except it has added controlls for going up and down. Turn the handlebars and you’ll bank left and right just as you would on a bike, motorcycle or jet ski.
With an improved propulsion system, the Flyboard® is 32% more powerful and is more diverse than ever with fully redesigned nozzles that direct water flow in a more direct way, making every movement more purposeful than ever.
Using an EMK adapter for JetPack (sold separately), either of the two hand controls can be replaced with Zapata’s wireless EMK, which would allow the user to remotely control the PWC’s thrust.
Cast with solid aluminum to decrease loss of pressure, the Hoverboard by ZR®’s exhaust nozzle directs water to provide lift and drive the rider perpetually forward.
Using Flyride™ is trully easier than riding a bike because it’s doesn’t require the rider to maintain balance. Anyone can do it. Internal sensors and electronics make continuous micro-adjustments to keep the Flyride™ level and steady, even when riders shift their weight.
Adding one of Zapata’s hydroflyers doesn’t mean you will have to miss riding your PWC. Switching back is easy and fast. With a Quick Nozzle (sold separately) you can swap between flying and riding in seconds.

Zapata has made history in the world of personal aviation with the development of advanced stabilization systems utilized in the groundbreaking Flyboard Air™ and EZ-Fly™ personal aviation platforms. Zapata will now change the world of recreational water sports by applying that same technology to hydroflight. This convergence of Zapata’s engineering and software innovation is what will set Flyride™ and Zapata apart from its imitators and bring the joy of hydroflight to wide audiences.

The Flyboard® Pro Series is the hydroflyer preferred by top athletes all over the world for its performance benefits. Because of its rotating base plate that allows the Flyboard® to pivot on its axis by up to 20 degrees, performance and trick capability reach the next level.
Whether just starting out on the water or interested in a new adrenaline rush, the Flyboard® Sport offers an easier learning curve. The static footplate helps beginners get acclimated with the incredible ability of the Sport model. Without the additional Pro benefits, the Sport is a more economical choice, costing 25-percent less than the Pro Series.
The black, angular forms are reminiscent of stealth technology and the five-point harness resembles something from a fighter jet, or race car. Transparent nozzles direct powerful jets of water and aluminum handle bars and nozzle rings elegantly complement plastic, foam and rubber components.
Jetpacks have been part of science fiction and experimental aviation for decades, dating back to the space race. Zapata has taken that concept and made an ultra-stable hydroflyer that anyone can fly. The system allows the user to fly in a seated, secured position and is less dependent on the rider’s balance and dexterity to fly. The JetPack is so stable that, once in the air, a user can even let go of the controls and stay flying in a hovering position.
Discontinued: Please note that the Hoverboard by ZR® has been discontinued and is no longer available for sale by Zapata. Current owners of Hoverboard by ZR® can still find support, tutorials, manuals and replacement parts on this site and from Zapata's distributors around the world.
Inspired by the movie Back to the Future™ and in tribute to the famous Silver Surfer™ the Hoverboard by ZR® is a hydro-propelled board, which allows the user to ride and surf in total freedom above the water. Connected to the PWC pump by a hose (18 or 23 meters long), the Hoverboard by ZR® user can manage the board with ease and can reach up to 8 meters above the water, to an average speed of 40 km/h.
The jet powered personal aerial vehicle, capable of VTOL and unprecedented individual mobility. The Zapata© technology platform is the safest, easiest, lightest, most maneuverable personal aviation system ever created.
