Our Take on Hoversurf

Hoversurf is based in San Francisco, and has hosted one confirmed round of funding. Since the company already has a marketable and functional prototype that is actively making demonstration flights, they're taking $2,000 deposits for the option to purchase a new Hoverbike for $59,900. Additionally, Hoversurf's ability to secure a partnership with the Dubai Police and supplement its already impressive fleet of luxury vehicles implicates a potential for continued research and development with the associated revenue stream. Hoversurf is also working on the Hoversurf Formula, a larger passenger aircraft that will serve as an aerial mobility air taxi and more.
