First there was cruising above the surface of the water with the Jetlev R200, and then came the not so cool Aquaskipper, where you use human power to propel yourself across the surface of the water in a very lame looking contraption.
And now we have the Subwing, where you get to glide under water as a dolphin would. It’s basically a small wing you hold on to while being pulled along by a boat. The Subwing allows you to move sideways, twist, and even dive. Based on what I saw in the video below, one could hurt themselves if not careful. But then again, that can apply to anything.

The recommended speed for the boat is about 2 knots. Unless you have a friend who is a complete jackass and decides to gun it, you should be okay while being pulled along. The rope should be about 15 meters in length. The longer the rope, the deeper you can dive.
The underwater toy is available in three different models. The fiberglass model costs $700, while the Carbon in matte and gloss will cost $850 and $895. I’m not a fan of the water so this product would not be for me, but perhaps some of you guys may find it interesting. For more details, check out Subwing.
