Unsatisfied with merely skating on top of ice, NHL superstar Alex Ovechkin has turned to hovering high above a body of water. Sunday, Ovechkin and his fiancee Nastya Shubskaya posted media from their latest escapade while on summer vacation: flyboarding!
An aquatic cousin of the jetpack, the French-made flyboard propels a rider into the air by shooting out water from tubes underneath their feet. A long fire hose connects the board to a jet ski, which powers the board and sends the person, in this case a future Hall of Fame hockey player, soaring up to 20 feet into the air.

Here’s what it looks like from the helmet cam of another vacationer.
The Russian machine, who missed claiming his sixth Rocket Richard Trophy in Las Vegas to have some Ovi Time, has been on summer vacation exploring for the last several weeks.
