At FlyboardNW, we can hook you up with your own gear, help you get it installed properly, and even help you with troubleshooting problems when they pop up. What we really like to do though is introduce people to Flyboarding through demonstrations and lessons. We train and perform demonstration flights year round mostly on the lakes, rivers, and waterways of Clark County, Washington. Occasionally we go on the road and have done training on Cultus Lake near Chilliwack B.C., Harrison Lake B.C., and Lake Whatcom near Bellingham, WA, and Lake Sammamish near Seattle, WA. It’s possible to Flyboard most anywhere where the water depth is known to be over 15 feet deep with no obstructions, and you have a clear area to maneuver in of as little as 100 x 100 yards or more.

Listed below are directions to our most commonly used training locations. For private excursions on the Columbia River, please contact us to make arrangements.

Saddle Dam on Yale Lake

Located at the south end of Yale Lake, this is one of our favorite spots. The water is crystal clear, and the views of Mount St. Helens to the North are breathtaking. It will cost you $3 to park on Friday - Sunday and Holidays. Midweek parking is free. If you park in the parking area assigned and walk up to the boat launch, you can walk to the far end of the park, past the swimming area where we generally operate from.

To get there take Highway 503 North from Battleground, and continue past Chelatchie. You will cross a single lane big green bridge over the Lewis River. After about ½ a mile you will see the sign to Saddle Dam on the right. Turn right and follow the road into the park to the parking area.

You can also get there by heading East on Highway 503 from Woodland at exit 21 off Interstate 5. Continue to the intersection where Highway 503 turns south and turn right and follow it to the Saddle Dam park signs that will come up on your left. Turn left and go into the park.

Yale Park on Yale Lake

Located about half way up Yale Lake on the west side, Yale Park is open in the fall when the water levels are to low for the other boat ramps. The water is crystal clear, and the views of Mount St. Helens to the North are breathtaking. It will cost you $3 to park on Friday - Sunday and Holidays. Midweek parking is free. If you park in the parking area assigned and walk up to the shady area under the trees you should find us.

To get there take Highway 503 North from Battleground, and continue past Chelatchie. You will cross a single lane big green bridge over the Lewis River. After about 4 miles you will come to a T intersection. Turn right and follow the road as it winds beside the lake to Yale Park on the right hand side. Enter the park.

You can also get there by heading East on Highway 503 from Woodland at exit 21 off Interstate 5. Continue to the intersection where Highway 503 turns south, but continue straight ahead and follow the road as it winds beside the lake to Yale Park on the right hand side. Enter the park.

Speelyai Bay on Merwin Lake

Located in a bay on the north side of Lake Merwin, Speelyai Bay is an entire no wake zone. Perfect for Flyboarding with no high speed boat traffic and deep water. The water is crystal clear, and the first place to warm up in the spring. It will cost you $3 to park on Friday - Sunday and Holidays. Midweek parking is free. If you park in the parking area assigned and walk up to the shady area under the trees you should find us.

To get there take Highway 503 North from Battleground, and continue past Chelatchie. You will cross a single lane big green bridge over the Lewis River. After about 4 miles you will come to a T intersection. Turn left and follow highway 503 westbound until you see signs to the Speelyai boat launch. Turn left and follow the road into the park. You’ll find us to the left of the boat ramps.

You can also get there by heading East on Highway 503 from Woodland at exit 21 off Interstate 5. Continue to follow highway 503 eastbound until you see signs to the Speelyai boat launch. Turn right and follow the road into the park. You’ll find us to the left of the boat ramps.

Pekin ferry on the north fork of the Lewis River

Pekin Ferry is a private facility located just West of Interstate 5 and exit 15 near La Center, Washington. It’s a secluded boat ramp with a private dock and a large 5 MPH no wake zone that we operate in which keeps us away from the faster traffic on the local rivers. The water is cold enough all year long that we often fly in dry suits, but it gets comfortable enough for shorty wetsuits in late June. There is a $5 fee to park here.

To access the site take exit 16 from Interstate 5 and head west on NW Pekin Ferry Road. The road will turn right and become NW 41st Avenue. DO NOT continue past the sign that says no river access on NW 41st avenue, but make the left turn and continue on NW Pekin Ferry Road, where you will turn right to follow the signs to the boat ramp at the end of NW Pekin Ferry Road.
