Turkish world championship podium-finishing Flyboard performer Kuzey Ali Komsusu (he got 3rd in 2015), shared a few videos recently on Facebook showing off his skills and a little bit of his routine as he performed at The Land of Legends theme park in Antalya, Turkey, last week. Dressed as a notably more-fit Santa Claus, Komsusu put on a Flyboard show before an international audience, complete with a floating sleigh as the Flyboard’s source of thrust, with a dubstep remix of “So This is Christmas” blaring over the sound system.
The three videos are brief, between 12-14 seconds each, and show just a taste of what Komsusu can do. We wished there were some shots of a backflip or two, but all we get is a couple of dips, and some general hovering around the pool. While we might be more accustomed to far more wild performances, the crowd certainly appeared to eat it up. The Land of Legends theme park is one of many new, multi-million dollar facilities beckoning tourists and regional “big spenders” to come and stay a while, with a massive waterpark, shopping center and hotel accommodations.
In addition to Komsusu’s performance, attendees are invited to swim with dolphins, ride down artificial river rapids in rafts, race down waterslides, and take a spin on one of several roller coasters and rides while visiting The Land of Legends. While most of us are unlikely to venture to Turkey to check out an amusement park, it’s nice to know that fun can be had outside of Anaheim, California or Orlando, Florida.
