The 22-mile journey took 22 minutes, and he reached speeds 100-105 mph.
Could hoverboards soon be mainstream?
"I'm feeling good, I'm just feeling very tired," Zapata told reporters when he landed.
The victory was all the more worth it because the previous time he tried out his invention, he ended up splashing into the water below.
Successfully crossing the channel was the "most amazing" moment of his life, he said.
