#Hoverboard - Marty McFly's hoverboard in Back to the Future Part 2 may still be a few years off yet - but a new aquatic take on the concept is right around the corner, as Mail Online reports.

Designed by French champion Jetski rider Franky Zapata, the Hoverboard by ZR allows the rider to leap up to five metres above the water thanks to the spring action of its powerful water jet, fed by a length of hose connected to a personal water craft or speedboat.

Zapata's creation will be available to buy later this summer - but researchers in Japan are already hot on its heels with their concept for a overboard that can levitate using soundwaves.

Mail Online has more on the story HERE.
