We’re sure you’ll have seen the various YouTube videos flying around of people trying this water-powered jet pack, including hilarious fails to graceful human dolphins dipping in and out of the surf. With a board strapped to your feet and your arms in grips, you are propelled by jets of water high into the air, where you can hover around while someone grabs a photo.

Where? Seariders UAE, Dubai Marina
How much? AED550 for an hour’s session
The sport involves having two feet strapped to a board while being pulled behind a speedboat. Anyone who’s snowboarded before should get the hang of it quite easily – mastering it is the fun part. Rushing across the bright blue sea with stunning views of Dubai in the background is an adrenaline rush in itself before you even start pulling out tricks.
Where? Nessnass Beach, Jumeirah
How much? AED350 for a private lesson
Using a modified surfboard means that if you’re an avid surfer, this is a sport you should pick up quickly. But even if you’ve never tried it before, you should start getting the hang of it after a handful of lessons. Instead of using a wave to propel you forward, you use a large, specially designed kite that catches the wind. It’s not easy, but it’s loads of fun.
