What’s up with the crazy jetpacks on Lake Stevens?

Update: Thanks to Sharon Mohney, my curiosity has been satisfied. The person in that photo is her husband, Mike Mohney. Together, they own Flyboard Funatix. Mike was out playing with the Flyboard over the weekend.

The business is based in Lake Stevens. They operate out of Eastern Washington usually, but are working to get permits so they can take out customers on Lake Stevens, too.

Here’s a video from their site of people using Flyboard at Moses Lake.

It appears that a budding Iron Man was practicing some moves on Lake Stevens this weekend.

Herald reader Lisa Hansen shared this photo from Sunday. (Thanks, Lisa!)

As best I can tell, it shows someone using a Jetleve Aquaboard, or something similar. I’ve heard of these gadgets before, but never seen them in use.

I’m fascinated to know that they’ve apparently made it to Lake Stevens.

I’d love to know about what’s going on in this photo. If you know anything, drop me an email at jloerch@heraldnet.com or call me at 425-339-3046.

And, for your entertainment, here is a video of these things. Skip to 0:35 to see it in action.
