There are water sports… and then there are Jetblades.
They maybe the most innovative product in the hydro flight industry and Four Seasons Resort Langkawi is the first place in Malaysia to offer it but I not sure I acquitted myself quite as well as I should have done when they gave me the opportunity to try!
Imagine the sensation of flying high above the sparkling Andaman Sea, standing on foot jets propelled by nothing but water and adrenalin. It’s the stuff that thrill-seeker’s dreams are made of, and it pushes the limits of water sports – and independent flight simulation – to truly thrilling new heights.
My session began with a brief orientation before heading into the Andaman Sea under the guidance of the Resort’s expert water sports team.
