"I've been on the lake most of my life, as a kid," says Ryan Cauly with Beaver Lake Flyboards.
But Cauly's new business, Beaver Lake Flyboards is taking him above it.
"We actually did it in Destin, Florida about a year ago. We did it, and we said we had to bring this to Arkansas."
"You hover above the water. It's like, like flying, like Iron Man."
The board is powered by a jet ski below.
"The hose connects to the bottom of the board, then the board shoots the thrust through the bottom."
Cauly says anyone can do it.
"Ages eight to 85 we've flown, anywhere from a minimum of 80 lbs up to 400. So pretty much anyone's in that category."
And after a short training session, Kyle Leyenberger took him at his word.
"It's hard to describe. It's better than wakeboarding, better than snowboarding. Better than any sport I've ever done. And a lot easier."
Cauly is set up at Prairie Creek Marina for the fourth of July weekend, and the initial flight goes for $99.00.
