Canadian sets Guinness World Records Title for the “Farthest journey by hoverboard”

You know what is awesome? Canada. The latest spectacular Canadian to do something amazing is Catalin Alexandru Duru by setting a new Guinness World Record for “farthest flight by hoverboard.” The total distance he ventured was 275.9 metres at Lake Ouareau in Quebec, which completely smashed the previous record of 50 metres.

Duru invented what he is calling the “first real-life hoverboard.” Duru stated before he took off that “I will showcase that stable flight can be achieved with a machine one can stand on and control with their feet.” Duru’s prototype was about 5 metres off the water.

“This is a truly mesmerising and incredible feat in the world of engineering and transportation. It’s always pleasing to see individuals such as Catalin Alexandru Duru achieve a Guinness World Records titles such as this in which personal endeavour continues to amaze us all.”
