Have you ever dreamed of flying? Subwing might not actually bring that dream come true, but you can feel the flying sensation with this water sport product. Designed by Simon Siversten during his sail trip in the Mediterranean in 2010, this young man developed SubWing which was originally made of a single piece of driftwood.
What makes SubWing special? Basically, it is two connected wings that can be rotated independently of each other. You need to get a boat tows SubWing while you hanging on it, the speed varies between 2 to 4 knots. This means even a small boat with small engine can tow this unit and you easily.
SubWing works just like wing rudders on an airplane, simply tilt the wings to control it to move in different angles. The main body of SubWing is made in carbon with a hollow design so that it floats easily, combined with Dyneema rope which is the world’s strongest rope, this product features maximum durability with minimum maintenance. Don’t worry if you don’t have strong arms or hands, the rope attachments on the wings are mounted to force more balance between the rope and the person who hangs on it, therefore, it doesn’t need much strength to operate these wings.
