Apparently San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker has a few other hobbies to keep him entertained.

TMZ.com published a photo of Parker flying a “water-propelled jet pack” above the Mediterranean Sea during a vacation in St. Tropez. According to the Web site, the ride set Parker back a cool $5,000.

Check out a promotional video of the jetpack in action here.

The jetpack is reportedly cally a JetLev, which uses water to propel itself skyward.

No news yet on whether “flying in a jet pack” is permitted under Parker’s current contract with the Spurs.

I’ve always wanted to go parasailing, but I gues that’s moot now. Why take a ride in a parachute tied to a boat when you can run on water and fly?
