Great Scott! £1,600 over-water hoverboard invented... one year before Marty McFly rode one in Back To The Future Part II

Watersports gadget available for hire in the UK and also on sale for £1,577 per board

Invented by jet-ski champion Franky Zapata, who also created the Flyboard

The device can reacjh speeds of up to 16mph and is inspired by Michael J Fox film

Most teenagers of the Eighties dreamed of zooming around on their own hoverboard like Marty McFly in the Back To The Future movies.

And now they can... over water, at least. While Marty seemingly zoomed around above the ground, the new gadget uses high-powered water jet to allow the rider to hover above the water.

It was invented by French jet-ski champion Franky Zapata, who also created the Flyboard in 2011, which also uses a water jetpack to propel users into the air.

While the article has some great pics, it has no video! So I found one for you!

Too bad you need to tow around a giant hose. Back to the drawing board...

Q-C

Looks fun as heck, but these buff guys make it look so easy. I wonder just how easy it is.

I mean is this for the average person or would moi end up drowned with fractures and a concussion :yes: :yes: :yes: .

I can see beating the hell out of myself. I'm just that talented and buff-less.
