The latest innovation from the tech geeks at Rocky Mountain FlyBoard is a floating wave rider, inspired and named after Marty McFly’s hoverboard from the classic film “Back to the Future”. The real life Hoverboard from Zapata Racing looks like a skateboard in the spirit of the times. It is dependent on water power and can reach speeds of up to 40 km / h and an altitude of 5 meters.

The fun alternative for water sports enthusiasts was developed by jet ski driver Franky Zapata. His company Zapata Racing is recognized as a specialist in transportation on water. Water is pumped from a lake or the sea via an 18-meter-long hose hanging down and ejected from two nozzles on the back of the board. This drive system is already known from the flyboard and jetpack. In order to achieve the maximum speed, however, you shouldn’t weigh more than 110 kilos, what otherwise could happen is actually still lacking experience at the moment.

That Zapata Racing hoverboard is right at the top of the hit list of things that every water and extreme sports enthusiast should definitely have tried out. Unfortunately, a lot of money still has to be paid for the trend sport “Water Hoverbording” – the water sports equipment costs just under 4,300 euros, although the price may vary depending on the equipment. However, it is to be expected that it should soon be possible to rent a trip on the hoverboard.
We highly recommend watching the video below for an impressive demonstration of the hoverboard. It’s fun just watching.
