New Guinness World Record set for hoverboard flight

The Flyboard Air inventor Frank Zapata set the record Saturday in France, riding his hoverboard over 7,388 feet, smashing the previous record of 905 feet, set by Omni Hoverboard inventor Catalin Alexandru Duru.

Here's video from Zapata Racing, posted to YouTube on Saturday:
