Flyboarding: 1. Combines wakeboarding and water jets. The wave runner forces water through a hose connected to the board and hand jets lifting the rider as high as 15 feet in the air. 2. the activity of putting 'For Sale' or 'Sold' signs outside properties which are not for sale, as a way of generating publicity for an estate agent. E.g. the company "flyboarded" more than 100 homes in the area.
