Film buffs remember from "Back to The Future Part II" that hoverboards are said to work great on land, but not so well on water. 

In real life however it seems that statement doesn't ring so true.

A video posted May 2 is trending on YouTube and shows the world record for farthest hoverboard flight set by Flyboard Air.

The video has already received more than 330,000 views.

In the video, Franky Zapata sets the new Guinness World Record for the farthest hoverboard flight, after flying his Flyboard Air a distance of 2,252 meters at an event in Sausset-les-Pins, France.

The footage in the video is provided by Zapata Racing.
