Tony Hawk has made the move from skateboard to hoverboard in an exciting new video promoting the futuristic product for Hendo Hover.

The 46-year-old had featured in a similar video earlier this year, but it was later revealed to be a hoax. However this one, whilst less exciting, is the real deal.

Forget everything you know

The video shows we are step closer to achieving the dream from the Back to the Future films, and the icon says: "This is the real hoverboard right here, so forget everything you know."

The prototype features the same science used in magnets and can hover an inch off the ground. That didn't stop Hawk pulling off a few tricks, including a 10-80 on the spinning board.

The skateboarding legend is clearly impressed with the manoeuvrability of his new toy, but it would not appear to have a braking mechanism and currently cannot hover over water.
