WOW is that something. I saw a prototype video from just one of those a year ago or so on PopSci (I believe) but pressure yield and control is out of hand now. I loved the underwater/out of water stuff .... We all want to be that kind of superhero Wink

I know huh. My guess is its using the pump jet on the ski. They look tethered.

At the end of the vid you can see the jet redirector being unbolted before a guy goes for a spin on his seadoo. With the speed he's  going, it's clear that's not your average ride.

I think that the hose connecting the nozzles must be bolted to the front of the seadoo so that it is somewhat effortlessly pulled along with the, um, rider/flyer. With the amount of pressure in the hose, it would clearly have to be strong enough to behave as the tether as well.

No lie ... the mechanics of the retractable wheels has to be considerably less sturdy than a normal quad.
