    Walking down the promenade this morning on my way from the bank, something I do more and more and I was stopped dead in my stride.

    About 100 feet offshore on the tourist beach was a guy hovering about 30 feet in the air with some jet pack.

    It took me a while to work out that the jet ski standing by was not a safety vessel but a pipe was plugged into the jet outlet rendering its propulsion void.

    This was piped into this---this jet pack thing like James Bond uses and he could move around in the air on a jet of water at his control.

    He was not very good at it and kept collapsing into the sea but then whoopp up into the air again.

    They were Russians and they were charging 100 dollars for 30 minutes.

    Ive never seen that before, I thought plugging into the back of a jet ski a good idea. Yet finding a new use for a jet ski may not be.

    Thats far better than what the Russians had, That is a real James bond copy jet pack.

    The one I saw seemed to have jets at their feet and two smaller ones on the wrists.

    Maybe they had made it,---seemed steady.
