With Subwing, You Literally Fly Underwater

A family attempt to sail around the globe in 2011 turned an idea into one invention that might have created a new watersport. After seeing how clear Greek waters are, a young Norwegian thought it would be nice for people to actually take advantage of such beauty, so he wanted to make flying underwater possible. Called the Subwing, the device consists of two separate wings connected in a rotatable swivel, which makes full freedom of movement possible.

Ever took a swim in sky-blue waters so clear you could actually see the bottom of the sea? Well, imagine you could glide through those waters like a stingray, with virtually full freedom of movement. Only problem is you’ll need a boat or a jet ski to pull you, but considering water is about 800 times denser than air, high speeds are not necessary to achieve a thrilling sensation under water.

By grabbing the grip on each wing, it can easily be controlled in all directions. Maneuvering is done by tilting the wings in different angles. Tilt both wings downwards to dive, and upwards to resurface, and simply tilt the wings in opposite directions if attempting a roll. According to their website, the idea struck 18-year old in 2011, when his brother and father all went together in an attempt to navigate around the world.

After discovering the incredible dynamic handling one could achieve underwater with this contraption, they went straight back to Norway and put the long trip on hold. After years of work and a lot of testing, they have three models online ready to be purchased by any adventure seeking person out there.

The most expensive model, called Subwin Carbon Glossy, is made of high strength quality carbon fiber with a super gloss finish and costs $895, while the cheapest model is $490.
