Move over “hoverboards,” or whatever all the teens are riding around nowadays. Here’s the real deal.

Franky Zapata already caught our eye back in 2014 with his amazing hoverboard skills, twirling up into the air with the help of this aquatic machinery. The inventor is back, this time to shatter the Guinness World Record for farthest hoverboard flight.

So, Franky, when’s our turn to try these out?
