On Saturday, along the coast of Sausset-les-Pins, near Marseille, France, some dude named Franky Zapata beat the Guinness World Record for the farthest flight via hoverboard on his jet-powered Flyboard Air. Trailed by a fleet of boats and jet skis, Zapata piloted the aircraft for 2,252 meters (or 7,388 feet), far surpassing the previous record set by Canadian inventor Catalin Alexandru Duru (275.9 meters) last year. The Flyboard Air evidently flies autonomously for up to 10 minutes, reaching a height of 10,000 feet with a maximum speed of 93 miles per hour. This is so much more legit than the punks weaving through foot-traffic on spontaneously combusting “hoverboards” that don’t even hover. We salute you, Monsieur.
