WATCH: Man flies across English Channel on hoverboard

A French inventor has succeeded in crossing the English Channel on a jet-powered hoverboard.

Franky Zapata fulfilled what he said was a lifelong dream Sunday morning on his second attempt, after being knocked off balance during his first try last month.

The 40-year-old started on his Flyboard from Sangatte in the Pas de Calais region on the northern coast of France at about 6.17am for the 22-mile (35km) journey to St Margaret’s Bay, beyond the white cliffs of Dover.
