Experience an innovative watersport that helps you fly underwater

27 June 2016

Inventor Simon Sivertsen from Norway designed SUBWING, a simple but clever solution that uses two fins connected together to allow users to glide underwater.

The SUBWING is designed with two separate wings connected in a rotatable swivel. By grabbing the grip on each wing, users can easily control it in any direction. 

Moving is achieved by tilting the wings at different angles, by tilting both wings down you can dive and to resurface simply pull upwards. If attempting a roll, simply tilt the wings in the opposite direction. For experienced users, a single hand grip is mounted between the wings on the rear, the grip is designed to be used when equalising ear pressure.

The towing speed recommended is about 2-4 knots; this speed is easily achieved by a boat with a smaller motor and is enough to perform many tricks and manoeuvres.
