And you thought water skiing was cool. How about using that boat to drag you under the water instead? The Subwing ($700-$900) promises exactly that. Available in fiberglass, glossy carbon fiber, and matte carbon fiber models, the Subwing is actually two wings connected to a detachable center swivel, with rubber grip pads on each wing, a rear rubber triangle for one-handed use, and ropes that attach to the wings. All you need now is a diving mask — and a boat, of course.
The only equipment needed is a diving mask. If desired, snorkel and fins can be used, but this is not necessary for a thrilling ride.
If you want to equalize ear pressure, the rear triangle rubber grip is designed for controlling the Subwing by one hand. Note that reasonable amount of experience with the Subwing is necessary before attempting to use the triangle grip under water.
Subwing is produced of high quality materials. To achieve the right stiffness in combination with a light weight and durable structure, it is constructed of carbon fiber using advanced and innovative production methods. Subwing is made of 6K Twill Carbon fiber in combination with epoxy glue.
The Center swivel is made of a combination of rubber and stainless steel. The ropes attached to the Subwing is made of Dyneema fibers, which is considered as the world’s strongest fiber used in ropes. The ropes are permanently glued into the stainless steel fastenings in the wings.
Subwing consists of the following parts:
– Two carbon fiber wings with rubber pads for perfect grip.
– One detachable center swivel.
– One attached rear rubber triangle.
– Ropes attached to the wings. (You still need a rope to the boat)
