Zapata™ is the undisputed leader in developing and manufacturing hydro- and jet-powered technologies and products. Zapata’s™ proprietary balance methodology, algorithms, and patented designs are currently commercialized and in development within the recreation, entertainment, military, medical, and industrial sectors.
Zapata’s™ founder, world champion jet ski racer Franky Zapata, launched Zapata Racing® to satisfy his passion by inventing new aftermarket products to make the world’s fastest personal water craft. With unparalleled performance, Zapata™ products quickly became a racing requirement to achieve the competitive edge necessary to win. With the desire to go even faster, Zapata™ shifted focus, and began manufacturing the fastest sit down and stand up jet skis in the racing world.
In 2012 Zapata™ launched the revolutionary Flyboard®, kickstarting a niche $200 million Hydroflight Sports and Recreation industry. Hydroflight is still in its earliest stages of growth and development, and the unwaning market demand provides a view for Zapata’s™ opportunity to further commercialize the industry in the coming years.
In 2016 Zapata™ achieved its proof of concept goal by producing the safest, most reliable, lightest, fastest, and least expensive personal flight system ever created with the unveiling of the Flyboard Air™. The Flyboard Air™ utilizes Zapata’s™ proprietary algorithms and balance methodology to direct jet engines to act independently and harmoniously. The performance parameters of the Flyboard Air™ provide undisputed proof that Zapata™ technology is commercially viable for advanced applications within the military, industrial, and medical fields.
