A Surfboard Straight from 'Back to the Future'


This video reminds us a lot of the hoverboard from Back to the Future. Watch as surfing legend Laird Hamilton quite literally flies over large waves in Raglan, New Zealand. He is using a foilboard which is a specially adapted surfboard with an underwater hydrofoil which makes the board rise from the water once it reaches a certain speed.

Not quite the hoverboard we wanted, but it's still pretty cool. Although we have seen other foilboard videos before, this is the first time we've seen one move without the aid of a Jet Ski or speedboat  It's best left to the pro's though as travelling at such high speeds on water can be very dangerous.
