Hendo: it's true, it's real, it's an hoverboard

The world's first real hoverboard has been successfully tested. Discover how Hendo will revolutionize the way you train rotations, spins, and reverses in surfing.

When Tony Hawk introduced us to HUVr, the ultimate "fake" hoverboard, we dared to dream.

Now, the dream has become a reality. Yes, there's a high-tech skateboard without wheels ready to hit the skateboard parks of the world.

The Hendo hoverboard rides about one inch off the ground. The prototype is real, and it works.

It is not a matter of defying gravity; it's pure science instead. As your weight transfers to the board, you feel a light, springy bounce, and you're immediately bouncing on air.

Magical Engines

The secret behind the Hendo hoverboard lies in its four disc-shaped hover engines.

These create a special magnetic field that literally pushes against itself, generating the lift that levitates our board off the ground.

The board resembles a snowboard, and the team behind Hendo says you'll experience an effortless ride. Apparently, it is smoother than any ride on wheels.

The current models can lift large-sized adults, with about half an inch of hover height, at a loading of 250 pounds.

The next step is the construction of a hoverpark, with surfaces optimized for the enhanced capability of the hoverboards.

Greg Henderson, the founder of Hendo and developer of the Magnetic Field Architecture, promises to change board sports.
