Caleb Gavic, Minneapolis, impressed the crowd at the 33rd Annual Eelpout Festival in Walker using his FlyBoard powered by his jet ski to fly above the open water at the Polar Plunge area on Saturday. With a 25-foot hose connected to the back of his jet ski and the remote control in his right hand he showed how he could circle around at 10-feet and then at 20-feet before doing an aerial flip to end his demonstration.
