Canadian man Catalin Alexandru Duru has set a Guinness World Record for farthest flight by hoverboard.

Catalin needed to travel a minimum of 164 feet airborne to break the record — and in the end, he smashed it easily, travelling 905 feet and two inches at a height of around 16 feet at Lake Ouareau in Quebec, Canada.

According to Guinness World Records, Duru built the propeller-based hoverboard prototype himself over a year, calling it "the first real-life hoverboard."

"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, claiming the board can reach "scary heights."

Breaking records is apparently no big deal to Duru, who appeared supremely chill on his board, casually waving to spectators and enjoying the scenery.

Who needs Marty McFly when you have a bona fide hoverboard inventor like this guy?
