‘Wingboarding’ is a new type of adventure sport that will soon be made available to thrill-mongers around the world. Developed by Wyp Aviation, a startup company trying to “take aviation to the next level”, the WingBoard provides riders with a stable platform that flies through the air rather than falling towards the ground.
It’s sort of a cross between skysurfing and wakeboarding and involves surfing through the sky on a board while being towed by a plane. The daredevil stunt is meant to emulate the comic book superhero Silver Surfer, who can travel through space on his surfboard-shaped craft. “The WingBoard is like a wakeboard, but instead of slicing through waves behind a boat, you’re being towed by a plane, carving through clouds,” said founder and lead engineer Aaron Wypyszynski
I think I have to call Shenanigans on this one. This looks totally fake and I can't see how a guy maintains stability at the speeds necessary to keep him airborne. Landing also appears problematic as any decrease in air speed would cause this small glider, with the weight of a man on it, to tumble to the ground. Call me when I real sized human can fly and glide this thing without dying in the process.
Sorry for the crappy font and size which I tried to fix but couldn't GRRRRRRR.
