This new device could be about to take snorkeling to the next level.Designed by Norwegian sailing enthusiast, Simon Sivertsen, Subwing has been created to be towed along by boat, whilst the person holding on to two wings can be pulled to underwater, by performing acrobatics or just enjoying beautiful sight of undersea world.This idea came to 20-year old Sivertsen while he was on a sailing trip in Mediterranean.
‘When sailing through the Greek islands, I was astounded by the clarity of the water, it almost felt like flying when diving, just missing the speed and thrill,’ he write on the company’s website.
‘The first ideas of an underwater wing, towed behind a boat, started emerging deep in the right hemisphere of my brain.
Using world’s strongest rope, Dyneema, Subwing is attached to boat. The two wings can be separately or individually manouevered, allowing user to twist them with the purpose of spin. To attempt a roll, the user twists wings in the opposite directions.
The user can make speeds of up to 4 knots by holding on to wings. No other equipment is needed other than a scuba mask, and a big deep breathe of course. Still when user wants to surface, this wills not a problem as tilting the wings upwards results in resurface.
The company says that generally beginners can spend up to 15 seconds underwater and diving at around three meters but can be increased with training. A number of accessories can be attached to the wing, like a lighting method for dark dives and GoPro camera mount to capture the experience.
The basic Subwing model costs $490, with option of upgrading to a ‘carbon glossy’ one for $895.
