Team Aquafly to Bring Extreme Water Sport Entertainment to the White River Water Carnival (Posted by Ginger Smith)

The Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce (BACC) and 2017 White River Water Carnival sponsors are proud to announce the planned performances of team Aquafly at the 74th Annual White River Water Carnival on September 16, 2017.


Based out of Austin, Texas, Aquafly is one of the largest hydroflight show teams in the world with more than 20 dedicated professionals riding all types of hydroflight devices. Hydroflight features Personal Watercraft Carriers (PWC) that push pressurized water up a 60-foot hose that splits into multiple jet nozzles that create lift for the device and the rider. Over the past four years, Aquafly has entertained countless audiences around the globe. Today, Aquafly has more podium finishes and top-five placements than any other hydroflight team in the world. Team Aquafly will amaze Water Carnival attendees with three daytime performances and one LED night show.

The performances will take place on the White River near the amphitheater at Riverside Park in Batesville. Performances times are as follows: 12 p.m., 3:30 p.m., 6:30 p.m., and 8:30 p.m.

In between performances, the Aquafly team will be offering instructional lessons for those interested in trying hydroflight for themselves.
