Welcome to the smoothest online ride to guide your hovering dreams over land and water.

And just in case you've been living on another planet, you should know hover crafts, or Air Cushion Vehicles (ACVs), are taking ours by storm. These amphibious vehicles come in all shapes and sizes, can traverse virtually every solid or liquid surface, and will handle any kind of budget you throw at 'em. You can build one from scratch, get a remote control model that'll hover the socks off your friends, or even pilot a personal craft to exhilarating speeds. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.

Hover hobbyists (also known as hoverers, hover lovers, and of course, hovercrafterz) are growing by leaps and bounds. Inspired by classic science fiction creations like Luke Skywalker's Speeder and Marty Mcfly's hoverboard, the hobbyist community is transforming moviemagic fantasy into fun reality.

In addition to a cool and affordable hobby, hovering turns out to offer several tangible benefits:

  • The ACV is environmentally friendlier than any other vehicle, hardly disturbing the surface underneath the craft
  • Emerging as the rescue vehicle of choice over water, this levitating wonder is safer for submerged swimmers and water skiers
  • The craft is amphibious by design, eliminating the need to secure it to a peer
  • And last but not least –

  • Hover tech projects are fun and educational, illustrating basic scientific principles
