I suspect there is a very steep learning curve...like straight up and down! I just don't heal up as fast as I used too!

Oddly enough when I saw this, I thought back to a dolphin encounter ten years ago. as you floated in the water, the dolphin would swim under you and put it's head on the bottom or your feet. Then it would power you up and across the water...like flying above the water. One of the most unique sensations I have ever experienced.

I noticed right away the entire thing was conducted over water and not land, plus the guy is wearing a crash helmut and suit. I also see that the backpack on his back is full of JET FUEL for the 4 small turbojet engines (used in RC model aircraft)....... LOL
