Watch Tony Hawk Ride the World’s First Real Hoverboard

1 minute read

Earlier this year, legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk pranked us with a phony video about new hoverboard technology. But now, to make up for it, here he is riding a real hoverboard.

Yup, Marty McFly’s preferred mode of transportation is now a real thing. Or at least, it’s pretty close. What the skateboarding icon rides in the video is a Hendo board, which bills itself as the world’s first hoverboard. Its developers recently launched a Kickstarter campaign, where you can pre-order one of these high-tech boards for a cool $10,000.

If that’s out of your price range, then just enjoy this video of Hawk testing one of them out. He’s not nearly as graceful as he is on a normal skateboard, but that’s understandable.
