The sight of this man shooting into the air from the Siuslaw River was a show-stopper last Wednesday near the docks at the Port of Siuslaw. On Wednesday afternoon, Jason Hardy, 47, demonstrated to a growing crowd — and a bird or two — the breathtaking new sport of flyboarding. Hardy is the owner of Flyboard of Bend and uses a uniquely designed flotation device attached to his feet and to a hose and a modified Jet Ski-type watercraft that lifts him into the air to do all kinds of flying tricks. He put on a similar show at Sandpines Golf Links Thursday morning. Watch for a full feature story about Hardy in an August issue of the Siuslaw News.
