Have you ever got launched like a rocket, from the bottom of the ocean to the air. It is the greatest feeling ever, you feel like something pushing you off your feet, It’s a lot of fun being suspended above the water. The feeling of being propelled upwards by jets is amazing. It’s a unique feeling and definitely worth doing 🙂
The media you are looking at are dives called dolphin dive. Basically, you dive into the water and then use the momentum and the thrusters to push you out of it. I don’t have good form here, but you get the idea. Really cool feeling.
