A father and son have become the first people to cross the English Channel non-stop on an eFoil board.<br />
<br />
Rob Wylie, 51, and his 19-year-old son Morgan are now world record holders after completing the 23 mile crossing in one hour and 44 minutes.<br />
<br />
They completed their mission on Fliteboards, electric-powered hydrofoil boards that hover above the water.<br />
<br />
They managed to do it on one battery charge although Rob had just four per cent battery left when they reached the shore in Folkestone, Kent.
