Subwing – Changing Water-sports and Letting You Fly Underwater


Check out the Subwing, a new water-sport craze that’s taking things under the surface is sweeping across Europe.


The Subwing is a 4ft carbon-fibre ‘wing’ that you hold onto in the flying position while being dragged through the waters by a speedboat.

Riding the Subwing will make you feel like you’re flying underwater and gives the rider a sense of dolphin-like freedom”. – Westgård

With only “22 years old, Sivertsen’s Subwing has come into its own and is spreading across the water-sports world. “Riders are towed behind a boat and have the ability to spin, turn and dive almost anywhere,” says Director of Subwing, Mats Westgård.
It’s said that it requires ‘little or no practice’ and using the Subwing is quite intuitive. Tilting the wings right or left allows for dramatic dives, lateral ricochets, and exhilarating corkscrew spins”. – Interesting Engineering
