Canadian Man Sets Guinness World Record Set for ‘Farthest Flight by a Hoverboard’

A Canadian inventor named Catalin Alexandru Duru has set the Guinness World Record for the “Farthest Flight by a Hoverboard” at 275.9 meters using a machine of his own design and construction. Duru flew his propellor-based design over Lake Ouareau in Quebec to set the record. Although the footage of the record-breaking flight shows the hoverboard over water, Duru says the craft can be used anywhere and is capable of reaching “scary heights.”
