WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A unique sight caught the attention of many people strolling around Downtown tonight.

A new Wilmington company, Carolina Flyboard, had a representative jet-pack over the Cape Fear River.

Connected to a jet-ski, the jet-pack allows the user to hover over a body of water using hydro-pressure.

It costs just over 50 dollars to rent the gadget.

People who are brave enough to try it, say is is a lot of fun and surprisingly easy.

“I am 59-years-old. I figure if I can do it, anyone can do it,” Tommy Lineberry said. “It really is a blast. To fly up in the air and do twists; I haven’t done twists, but they do.”

The company has been in business for about a month.

For more information you can find them on Facebook by using Carolina Flyboard as the keyword.
