Want to fly like George Jetson or Iron Man?
Thrill seekers eager to try the next new watersport are rushing to strap on jetpacks that propel people into the air with the help of pumped water.
coral scientist Bob Richmond told officials he was concerned about the noise the devices make, as fish avoid areas that are too loud. He also worried fish and coral larvae could get pumped through some of the equipment the watercraft use and die.
Jeffrey Krantz, owner of the company that operates the sole Jetlev in commercial use on Oahu, suggested the state set aside areas for jetpack use.
A device called the Jetlev can lift a person 30 feet (nine metres) high by pumping water from a backpack through a hose connected to a small, unmanned boat.

Complaints from fishermen and other ocean enthusiasts prompted the state Department of Land and Natural Resources to call a public meeting about the devices last month. The department top enforcement officer, Randy Awo, expressed alarm about unsafe manoeuvrs, such as riders dive bombing into the water next to moving boats.
Another contraption called the Flyboard, which looks like a small snowboard attached to a hose, can propel riders 45 feet (14 metres) in the air.
However, some in the Aloha State are far less enthusiastic about the machines.

The state may find a way to accommodate the devices, perhaps in selected places, said William Aila, chairman of the Board of Land and Air Max 95 Stussy Black Natural Resources. But Aila said studies are needed examining how such watersports may affect fish and coral.
