With it being 2015 and with that being the future according to Back to the Future, we’ve seen a number of devices that claim to be hoverboards or devices that act somewhat like them. While many of the so-called hover boards we have today barely get off the ground and move quite slowly, one board seemingly ticks all the boxes; except that it only runs over water.

Meet the Foilboard – a new board that is essentially a surf board with a hydrofoil motor attached to it. Once the surfer using the board gets up to speed, he or she can almost literally fly above the water. It’s amazing to watch – it’s like a motorised surfboard, a surfboard faster and more capable than any other.

Be sure to watch famous surfer Laird Hamilton give the board a try in the video below.
