Evolution of the SUBWING, told by the inventor, Simon Sivertsen
It all started in the beginning of the summer of 2011, back then I was 18 years old. My brother, father and I were going to attempt a circumnavigation around the globe. We had bought a sailboat in Turkey and started our journey from there.
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. The first ideas of an underwater wing, towed behind a boat, started emerging deep in the right hemisphere of my brain.
And so was created SUBWING, an exciting and innovative water sport product, featuring two wings that can be rotated independently.
When connected to a boat this product allows the rider to reach underwater speeds as high as four knots. SUBWING is made of carbon and uses the world’s strongest rope to maximize durability.
