"Bob, thanks. thanks for being thorough with your instructions and emphasizing the safety! Needless to say the experience was amazing! I could not stop smiling for next 3 hours or so after fly boarding! That was a best birthday surprise I have ever got!"
"It's the coolest thing ever."
"It was AWESOME!! Just thinking about it makes me smile... I'm actually thinking about doing it again on Monday and I'm trying to get Carl to go too."
"When I was first invited to go flyboarding, I wasn't sure what to expect. I had never heard of it before, and was a little nervous. When I went out with my friend,and saw him lift out of the water like something out of a movie, I instantly knew I wanted in. It only took me a few minutes to get the basics of it down, and before I knew it I was having a blast above the water!"
"Bob had me up and flying in no time. He is an extremely well qualified and safe instructor. I was doing dolphin dives and having high flying fun during my very first flight. His equipment and instruction is top notch."
"Fly boarding was an unreal experience, you feel like you can fly. Fly boarding is definitely the best thing on the lake and the highlight of my summer so far. So much fun."
"Words cannot descrive how fun Flyboarding was with Madcityflyboards. Thanks Robert Cook and Madcityflyboards.com. The experience is not like any other. Bob will have you in the air in minutes. You move in all directions, feel like a superhero and even falling is fun. Still smiling 1 day later"
"We had so much fun, it was an absolute blast! Cannot wait to give it another go! Thank you so much!"
"Such an amazing time...thanks Bob."
"Flyboarding is amazing, And super fun! Its like those flying dreams but this isnt a dream. Best way I can describe the feeling is like.. your Iron man. Or the Green Goblin from Spider man. You haven't lived till you've experienced the flyboard!!"
"Special thanks to Robert Cook and mad city flyboard for an awesome ride yesterday. Check out madcityflyboard.com to try it out. Seriously coolest thing ever!!!! Period."
"It was the coolest experience of my life so far. Everyone can try it. Even my mom tried it and was able to get up. BEST experience and the staff are AMAZING. On a scale of 1 - 10 I give it a 500."
"Took my wife and two of my kids (20 and 24, so not really kids) Flyboarding for the first time. Bob was a great instructor! We were all able to get up and flying in no time. As a matter of fact, he got me up on my first try! Pretty awesome for a 55 yr old. Most of us were diving within 15 minutes. As a long time instructor in extreme sports, Skiing and Kiteboarding to name a few, Bob’s instruction and concern for safety, allowed me to feel very comfortable taking my family out to try this new experience. It is truly amazing when you get to fly like a super hero! I would strongly recommend it!!!"
" Last night was incredible. Bob is very patieint & makes you feel like in instant pro. Nicole, Lexi & I had an absolutel blast. We're hooked! Thanks for a great evening. The funniest comment I heard was from a guy watching Nicole and Lexi- Hey buddy, did that thing really hold you up? No kidding!"
"I would say "It’s one of the most rewarding and altogether different experiences I’ve had. Besides being surprisingly easy to learn, flyboarding really is as much fun as it looks like! There’s really nothing else like it."
"It's the most fun thing i've tried in years!"
"It Was a Phenomenal Experience and I Enjoyed Every Minute. Was really fun .I did twice and i would love to do It again."
"I never knew much about Flyboarding until yesterday....and then I tried it. WOW....what a rush! Bob is an excellent instructor....he makes you feel comfortable, confident & safe! It really is an 'out of the box' experience. Go for it...you'll have no regrets!"
"I was able to try the flyboard yesterday, courtesy of madcityflyboards.com, with Robert Cook. Tons of fun and highly recommended."
"Hi Bob. Thanks for posting the photos-really had a great time today. This is what I posted on Angie's List: Bob, the owner and instructor, allowed us to book next-day for (2) 1 hour sessions each. We both had not flyboarded before and had only seen it on YouTube. When we arrived at Law Park on Lake Monona, Bob was set-up and ready to go. He was very pleasant, patient and courteous. You can tell Bob is very passionate about flyboarding: he is a great instructor with safety in mind, operated the flyboard with perfection for us novices and it was obvious that he enjoyed himself too! The weather was mid 70s with cloudy skies so Bob gave us each wet-suits. He assured us that even though the water would be warm, he wanted us to completely comfortable and have the best experience possible. Bob let us each each take (2) half hour sessions which I highly recommend. We'll see you next summer Bob!"
"Flyboarding was one of the most surreal experiences of my life. I felt like a superhero. I couldn't believe how easy it was to balance, and how intuitive it was to control my movement after only a few minutes of blasting out of the water. I would call it a once in a lifetime experience, except I'm already trying to figure out when I'll be able to do it again. Thanks, Bob!"
"What a blast to go flyboarding! I was kind of skeptical at first. Not because I didn’t think it would be a great time, but I was worried that I couldn’t ride it. Turns out the setup is designed so well it’s actually quite easy to balance and control doing different maneuvers.
Bob’s advice out on the water is very helpful and he is never critical. The experience is totally worth it and I can’t wait for an opportunity to do it again! I recommend everyone give it a shot. Thanks Madcity Flyboards!!"
"As I was watching the Badger game over Labor Day they were showing Lake Mendota in front of the Union in Madison, WI with this thing in the water flying around, which I’ve never seen before. I immediately grabbed my computer and started my search for this thing called Flyboarding. As I watched different videos I knew it was clear I had to try it. I found Madcity flyboards online and contacted Bob to set up the time to fly. Then two weeks later my brother and I took our first flight, Bob (aka flyboard Bob to us) was a great teacher and gave us all of the tools in order to start flying. When you first see someone take flight in person it’s almost unbelievable and looks difficult. Looks can be deceiving because it only took me (6’3” 225lbs) a couple tries before I was diving and flying around like Ironman. Guaranteed I will fly again."
McKenna on Flyboarding: When I first heard about Flyboarding I had no idea what it was about. But when I looked into it I became so excited. From what I knew it was basically a water jet pack, and the steering came from leaning and bending your knees. I was a little nervous going into it because I had never done anything like it before, but I decided to do it anyway. Doing it was a little harder than I had thought, but I eventually got the hang of it. Getting up is the hardest part, but after you get that down its as easy as pie. I progressed more and more as I did it, and it was really fun to wave and make faces at my friends as I got more comfortable doing it. I also got some really cool pictures that I got to show my friends. We all agreed that it was one of the coolest things that we had ever done, and we all would love to do it again. I really hope that you give it a shoot because it is well worth it!

Thanks to Bob and his son for a phenomenol day of Flyboarding. This was a first time experience for a group of 9 adults and kids. We had a lot of friends observing and cruising on paddleboards. Bob is a wonderful instructor. His demeanor is calm and patient yet very enthusiastic. He had everybody up and riding in no time. My son said “this is the best thing I’ve done all summer” and a friend of his said “this is the best thing I’ve ever done.” I can’t recommend Mad City Flyboards enough! If you think you might be interested…go for it.

Thank you Robert Cook! You and your son were encouraging, thoughtful instructors. I felt safe at all times. I want to do it again!!! I had my first Fly Boarding lesson with Mad City Fly Boards on Lake Monona today! Thanks to instructors Bob and Ryan for the great encouragement, and my video gal Lisa. I gained more altitude as my lesson progressed. What a blast!

"Flyboarding is a must for everyone's bucket list. Madcity flyboards is the perfect opportunity to do it! They have a lot experience training and it shows. It was amazing to learn so quickly and soar like a bird and swim like dolphin. There is nothing like it- I absolutely loved it!"
