We are making a splash by being featured in Chicago’s preeminent publications such as Chicago Magazine, Thrillist,The Reader, RedEye, Natural Awakenings and more! As a lead sponsor for the Chicago In-Water Boat Show at 31st Street Harbor we’ve also been profiled on ABC, CBS, and WGN morning news programs. WCIU, The U knows what’s setting the trend and what’s hot in Chicago! They’ve introduced countless thousands by showcasing us twice, first In 2013 when Aly went FlyBoarding and the segment can be seen below and in most recently in the segment “Why I Love My Job.” We introduced the FlyBoard experience to Chicago in 2013 and no pun intended but its been all up hill!
