Flying above the water like a superhero is no longer a faux. Thanks to Flyboard Malaysia who operates at the Marina Putrajaya. Flyboard Malaysia makes sure you will have a lot of fun with nozzles attached to your feet. While they allow you complete freedom to fly freestyle, the expert reckons it will usually take you at least two rides to get familiarised.

5. Waterski & Wakeboard
If flyboarding sounds too superhero-ish to you, then try the more conventional waterskiing or wakeboarding at the same location. If you’re living in the Greater KL area, you can try doing this at The Mines (www.wakeboard.com.my) or in Putrajaya (www.waterski.com.my).
