awesome Hovercraft for a spin in Back to the
Future. Well folks, the future is here. This unique and innovative contraption is a gasoline powered personal hovercraft that rides on a cushion of air and can go as fast as 15 mph. Said to have the sensation of steering a skateboard, the reality is that it feels like a cross between skiing and flying. The Airboard is designed to function over concrete, asphalt, grass or shallow wet areas but not with dirt, sand and water (so no hovering over water Jesus style). Just lean to the left, lean to the right and it’s all too easy. Just like riding a bike - if only the bike could fly that is (although I’m sure they’ll think of that next).
