TOP6 best Flyboard and Hoverboard spots for Winter Escapes

By Emma - 2014-09-03 03:52:01 | Flyboard® - Hoverboard® - Editor’s pick
One of the best things of flyboarding and hoverboarding is that in general it does not require special location or weather conditions, so you can do it wherever you wish as long as there is ocean, sea, lake, river or pool (if you lucky enough to have really big one and feel experienced enough to try it). However here in northern part of the world we know that soon temperature will drop down and even with winter wet suit it won’t be so much fun dropping in the water after trying some tricks. So I decided to check some of the hot spots during winter season and collect some facts. Here are some of them and more to come later…
