The XDubai Flyboard World Cup 2014, 4-6 December is taking place in the area of the Marina near the Skydive Dubai wharf.  A spectacular crowd pleaser.

Fly Boarding

7.00 The last day and the weather forecast is similar to yesterday's, in which case we will complete everything well before the Air Show planned today for 16.15 - 16.50.


The mixture of 'other' events choreographed during the DIPC makes it a real spectator show and certainly brings in the crowds.  The majority take place beside the competition and creates an exciting atmosphere on the Drop Zone. 

Today we will complete round 8 of the Accuracy Landing which will give us a Team Result in both the Male/Mixed Team event and the Female Team event.  At the end of Round 7 CHINA is in first place with a total of 19 cents - RUSSIA and SLOVENIA tie for second with a total of 21 cents with CHINA J in 4th place on 23 cents - anything could happen.   The competition is not so close in the Female Team event with BELARUS F 8 cents ahead of RUSSIA F and then a 6 cents difference between them and CHINA F.
