Just in time for summer is the arrival of a new toy called the Hoverboard. It’s the creation of French jetski champion Franky Zapata. [It] is a cross between a wakeboard and a hovercraft.
The Hoverboard is attached via a long length of tubing to the water exhaust of a jetski. It has its own single nozzle which shoots the water out of the back of the board, enabling you to travel at up to 23 miles per hour.
Unlike, say, a surfboard or skateboard, the rider’s feet are attached to the board (like a snowboard), meaning you can pull crazy shapes until your jetskiing chum gets bored and goes in for tea.
