If you’ve ever stood on a skateboard, a surfboard or skis, you know how cool it feels to ride them. Well, imagine riding like that through the sky. French jet skier Franky Zapata rode a “hoverboard” a whole 100 feet above water. That’s 2-4 times the height of a house — and he flew like that for almost a mile and a half! His flyboard can drive for only 10 minutes at a time, but at a super-speedy 93 miles per hour. Sailboats, eat your heart out!

*Wee ones:* If you ride a surfboard, a skateboard, a scooter, a hoverboard, and a Flyboard Air, how many speedy vehicles do you ride?

*Little kids:* If you have a skateboard and a scooter, how many wheels do you have? (Skateboards have 4 wheels each, scooters have 2.) *Bonus:* Say your 1st flyboard ride lasts 5 minutes and your 2nd is 9 minutes. If your friend’s first ride is 6 minutes, how long does her 2nd ride have to be to give her the same total time?

*Big kids:* The Flyboard can fly 93 miles an hour. How many miles an hour faster would it have to fly to reach 100? *Bonus:* The Flyboard can fly as high as 10,000 feet! How many times as high as 100 feet is that?

*The sky’s the limit — for real:* At 90 miles an hour, how many miles can the Flyboard fly in 10 minutes? (*Hint if needed*: How big a piece of an hour is 10 minutes?)

Answers:

*Wee ones:* 5 speedy vehicles.

*Little kids:* 6 wheels. *Bonus:* 8 minutes, since the total is 14.

*Big kids:* 7 miles an hour faster. *Bonus:* 100 times as high.

*The sky’s the limit:* 15 miles. Since 10 minutes is 1/6 of an hour, it will fly 1/6 of 90 miles.
