To obtain the title, Catalin had to cover a distance of more than 50 meters. Well, he did go well beyond that, didn’t he?!

“I wanted to showcase that a stable flight can be achieved on a hoverboard and a human could stand and control with their feet,” he said in a statement.

A Guinness World Records spokesperson, said: “This is a truly mesmerising and incredible feat in the world of engineering and transportation. It’s always pleasing to see individuals such as Catalin Alexandru Duru achieve a Guinness World Records titles such as this in which personal endeavour continues to amaze us all.”

Catalin explains that he has designed the ‘vehicle’ over a period of a year. He claims that it can be used anywhere. He even goes so far as saying that it can reach “scary heights”; be sure that he intends to test them.
