Subwing offers new watersport

ADVERTISEMENT

Subwing of Kristiansand, Norway has introduced a new underwater watersport to be towed behind a motorized boat. Invented by Simon Sivertsenhe, the Subwing consists of two separate wings connected in a rotatable swivel controlled by gripping each wing. It can be controlled in all directions by tilting the wings in different angels; downward to dive and upward to resurface.


The Subwing is easy to learn and comes naturally to many first- timers. And a single hand grip is mounted between the wings for For more experienced users who need a free hand to equalize ear pressure. Recommended towing speed is approximately 2-4 knots.
