It's called a "Jump Board" or something like that.  I've seen some
spectacular swan dives from 20 to 30 feet up.

What is the GPS, gallons per second, for air time.

Don't know but since the power source is a Jetski, probably about the
same fuel burn.   There is a long, flexible hose running from the
output of the Jetski to the bottom of the board.   The Jetski operator
controls the power, and the person on the board has limited
maneuverability by doing subtle weight shifts.

Here's Newfoundland commedian, Rick Mercer, 'FlyBoarding' out in Alberta for his weekly national tv show last summer.
Yes, he did sail with us on the Mirage 33 when he lived here.

Pretty sure that I saw an item that stated the latest version of 'FlyBoarding' is done with a drone type of tow vehicle operated by the same person strapped to the hoses and jetpack.
