Went out today to try a Flyboard , this has got to be the most fun I ever had with a SEADOO .
If you ever have a chance go for it.

Those have always looked like a blast. Just have this vision stuck in my head of pointing towards the bottom and not being able to let off the gas or something. Kind of like riding a wheelie on a motorcycle, starting to lose it and not being able to let go of the throttle only making it worse. Or is there a failsafe built in for that sort of thing...

That's crazy -- we're in St Maarten this week and my son is going to try something very similar today......the only difference with this one is that you wear it like a jet pack. It does look like a lot of fun!!

Totally jealous! That's where we are going for our honeymoon in Oct! Keep tabs on everything you guys do/see and let me know when you get back. I'd like to get a rundown from ya of things we should check out when we go

You staying on the Dutch or French (north) side? We are on the Dutch and haven't ventured too far from our resort but we did spend the day at one of the Orient Bay beaches which was amazing. We did find a couple of pretty good hole-in-the-wall restaurants.

Were staying on the south side, Kim Sha Beach. A friend of ours bought a place there and is letting us stay there for our honeymoon. Looks amazing. If that's anywhere close to where you guys are let me know. I can send you a little info packet they sent me

Hmmm, don't remember that beach but there are a ton of them. We stayed on Simpson Bay which is just a couple of miles from the airport. We didn't really do many excursions, but PM me if you are looking for any details and I'll help out however I can. And unless you plan to do a lot of traveling around I would opt for no rental car -- traffic is a nightmare and parking very limited.

I just looked up Kim Sha on google maps ( since I'm just sitting in the airport waiting for our flight home) and it's on Simpson Bay too. We were at Simpson bay resort which is just around the bay from your location. We did find several restaurants pretty close to you and a supermarket for incidentals.
