The Hoverboard by ZR is an incredible extreme water sport device that combines the best of surfing and fly-boarding. It was developed by French jet ski champion Franky Zapata.

The Hoverboard by ZR has a board that looks much like a wakeboard, but is attached to a personal watercraft via an 18 meter long hose. The hose supplies water that shoots out through a nozzle, providing enough energy to propel the rider through the air at amazing speeds. The hose allows the companion jet ski rider to ride behind the Hoverboard user, giving them the space they need to safely move through the air and perform tricks.

The Hoverboard can travel at speeds of up to 25 km/h depending on the speed of the personal watercraft, and allows riders to soar up to 5 meters above the water.
