The Frech daredevil Franky Zapata has today set the world record for the farthest flight by a hoverboard.

He did this with the Flyboard Air Hoverboard, which took him over a distance of 2,252 metres.

That hoverboard is capable of flying up to 10 minutes and can achieve a top speed of 93mph or 150km an hour. During his flight, Zapata reached a total height of 50m, all within the time of just seven minutes.

Guinness World Records confirmed the record, which over-achieved the previous record of 275.9 metres, which was set by the Canadian, Alexandru Duru.
