UPDATE: Flyboarders set record on Kalamalka Lake

UPDATE: 4:45 p.m. — The pro flyboarder riders achieved their goal of getting all fifteen riders in the air at once.

VERNON — Professional flyboarders are aiming high, as they try to set a record on Kalamalka Lake Thursday afternoon.

If all 15 riders are in the air at the same time, it will set a Canadian record for most flyboarders on Canadian water.

The country’s top flyboard riders are using this occasion to film a video, which will help them attract sponsors so they can attend the X Dubai Flyboard World Cup in December.

Flyboards are attached to personal watercraft, supplying the propulsion that drives the flyboard through the air and water.
