Viral Video: Hoverboard Flight Sets New Guinness World Record

Former jetski racing world champion Franky Zapata is the inventor of the Flyboard and Flyboard Air, and most recently, became the new Guinness World Record holder for the farthest hoverboard flight.

In Back To The Future II, hoverboards don’t work on water. Thanks to this Frenchman, in real life, they do.

Watch Zapata’s Flyboard Air soar a distance of 2,252 meters –nearly a mile and a half — in Sausset-les-Pins, France. 

The future is here, folks! Well, at least for the rich and dangerous.
