If you head down to the Boating and Outdoor Festival in Harrison Township this weekend you'll see what could be the next big thing to hit local lakes. It's called flyboarding and FOX 2 received a full demonstration Friday morning.

Flyboarder Brandon Robinson put on a show as the apparatus from Zapata Racing used water jets to propel him both under water and into the air above Lake St. Clair. (Click the video player to watch)
