Stunning visuals: French inventor uses hover-board to cross English Channel

French inventor Franky Zapata crossed the English Channel on his flying contraption. He used a hover-board to cover 35 kilometers in 22 minutes. He set off from France's Sangatte and landed in United Kingdom's St. Margaret's Bay. Commenting on his feat, Zapata said he was feeling happy and it was an 'amazing' moment of his life. He also revealed how the journey was physically taxing as his body had to endure wind resistance while travelling at speeds above 150 kilometers per hour. The inventor's wife broke down when news of his landing reached her.
