Watch this Canadian guy set the Guinness World Record for the farthest flight on a real-life hoverboard

It's 2015, and that means we're starting to see real-life hoverboards, just like "Back to the Future Part II" predicted years ago.

The latest functional hoverboard comes from Canadian inventor Catalina Alexandru Duru, who recently set the Guinness World Record for "Farthest flight by a hoverboard." To claim the title, Duru needed to travel for more than 50 meters, but he wound up floating over the water for a total distance of 275.9 m (905 ft 2 in), according to a Guinness World Records blog post.
Duro achieved the record using a prototype hoverboard of his own design that utilizes four propellers to keep him aloft while he hovered above Lake Ouareau in Quebec, Canada.
