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. The main competitor for an aircraft like the Hoverbike would be the Kitty Hawk Flyer, which occupies a similar market segment, but is currently not for sale.
