Subwing Underwater Flights

How it works

The SUBWING consists of two separate wings connected in a rotatable swivel. By grabbing the grip on each wing, it can easily be controlled in all directions. Maneuvering is done by tilting the wings in different angels. Tilt both wings downwards to dive, and upwards to resurface. If attempting a roll, simply tilt the wings in opposite directions. Controlling the SUBWING is easy to learn and comes naturally to many first- timers. For more experienced SUBWING users, a single hand grip is mounted between the wings at the rear. This grip is designed to be used when equalizing ear pressure and when one hand is needed.

Towing speed

Water is about 800 times denser than air, therefore high speeds are not necessary to achieve a thrilling sensation under water. We recommend a towing speed around 2-4 knots. This speed is easily achievable by a small boat with an insignificant motor, and is plenty to perform impressive acrobatic maneuvers under water.


SUBWING User and safety manual

Note: Before getting in the water the rope must be in a matter that it will not tangle when released in the water. The first time using the SUBWING under water should be for familiarizing yourself to the SUBWING under low speeds. Do not attempt any spins or rapid turns before you are completely familiarized with the basics of how to resurface and dive.

Speed: When using the SUBWING for the first time, start with a small amount of throttle or just idling speed (depends on the engine size) and slowly speed up so the person in the water can familiarize himself of how the SUBWING behaves in the water. Around 2-4 knots is the recommended towing speed of the SUBWING.

Under water, the sense of speed and the forces on the body increases drastically. Take in consideration that speeds around 4 knots are considered fast. Injury to the neck or other parts of the body may occur if attempting higher speeds.

Diving: To dive, simply point both your forearms downwards maintaining a firm grip around the grip pads. The wings will now be forced downwards by the water as it flows over it.

Resurfacing: To resurface, simply do the opposite of diving. Point both your forearms upwards so the wings are being forced upwards by the water as it flows over it.
