Watch: Why you should make the Subwing your next superyacht toy

Watch: Why you should make the Subwing your next superyacht toy

From the top jet skis to limited edition Seabobs and extreme water sports, humans have long been dreaming up ever more thrilling ways to explore and enjoy the oceans.

Invented by Norwegian sailing enthusiast Simon Sivertsen, the Subwing combines the speed of water skiing with the exploration possibilities of a Seabob to create a new underwater toy that’s guaranteed to become the next superyacht must-have.

See the Subwing in action

As the video above shows, the Subwing is attached to a RIB or tender and pulled along to gain speed. The board itself consists of two separate wings connected by a rotating swivel – the user holds on to a grip on each wing and can easily control the direction of movement by tilting the wings at different angles.

This easy operating system makes the Subwing perfect for beginners and, as there is room on the board for two people, it is also ideal for adventurous children. The Subwing allows for diving depths of up to 10 metres at a towing speed of 2-4 knots making it a brilliant and leisurely alternative to traditional snorkelling.

For more experienced users the Subwing also features a single-hand grip mounted between the wings at the rear which is designed for manoeuvres such as equalizing ear pressure. Of course, thrill seekers have also discovered it’s a great way of performing barrel rolls too.

Subwing currently offers three different models starting with the Honeycomb, which is available in six different designs and is intended for everyday, family-friendly use. Carbon fibre and fibreglass handmade designs are also available for more experienced user who wish to experiment with deeper dives and more advanced tricks.

Prices from $295 - $895, visit subwing.com.
