Pictured: The riders celebrate after the race.
Daredevil businessman Rob Wylie is celebrating becoming the world's first Flite Enduro Champion after winning the first race of its kind off the UK coast.
Rob, 53, beat stiff competition to complete the 15-mile route in the English Channel in 43 minutes and 10 seconds on a Fliteboard, an electric-powered hydrofoil board.
Six competitors took part in the world-first endurance race from the iconic Needles landmark on the Isle of Wight to Sandbanks in Poole, Dorset on Saturday morning.
The challenge is a combination of skill and strategy - racers have to make sure they do not fall off and find the perfect speed, not going too fast that they deplete the battery before the finish.
