The Pinoy innovator used the Star 8 Green Technology Corporation’s electric flying hoverboard (e-Hoverboard) and the total flight time was 7 minutes and 22 seconds.

Mendiola’s latest feat broke the current Guinness record for the farthest hoverboard flight achieved by Jet ski champion Zapata who traveled 2,252 meters with a jet-powered hoverboard in Sausset-les-Pins, France in 2016.

Kyxz Mendiola, a Filipino drone and flying car enthusiast, is currently working on the Philippines’ first-ever flying e-car or Electric Manned Aerial Vehicle (EMAV) with Star 8 Corporation.

More world records set recently by Filipinos include the tallest Christmas tree tower of sardine cans for charity, Bulacan’s “Largest Number of Living Figures in Nativity Scene”, and Sorsogon’s love & courtship Filipino folk dance.
