We always will remember the first time we seen the hoverboard in Back to the Future and its evermore becoming more a reality with several attempts seen so far this has to be the best and surely it wont be long before they are available and can do what they say on the tin….On a side note too Nike are reported to be re-releasing the self strapping boots sometime soon too,so again thank Back to the Future.

Watch Catalin Alexandru Duru become the first person ever to break the Guinness World Records Title for the Farthest journey by hoverboard.

 

The farthest flight by hoverboard is 275.9 m (905 ft 2 in) and was achieved by Alexandru Duru (Canada) at Lake Ouareau in Quebec, Canada on 25 August 2014.

The first real-life hoverboard. The machine was built and designed by me, Catalin Alexandru Duru. I am the first man to create and fly a working prototype.
I will showcase that stable flight can be achieved with a machine one can stand on and control with their feet, just like in the movie “Back to the Future Part II”. In our case, the machine is propeller-based.
The prototype can be used anywhere, but is usually tested over water because of how dangerously high it can fly (which is ironic considering that the movie joked that it can’t).
