Jet ski champion Franky Zapata is pushing out his new invention—a watercraft that allows flying above the water, “Flyride.”

The rig gets hooked to a jet ski with a hose and allows up to two riders to take off above the water’s surface.

The rig itself helps the rider with take-off, balance, and throttle, and elevation control. When the rider reaches a certain elevation, the rig enables an automatic barrel roll function.

Zapatas’ company accepts pre-orders for Flyride and states it will start shipping in March. The price starts at $5,500.
