It is the bizarre new extreme sports craze that is sweeping Europe, enabling thrillseekers to fly underwater.
Called ‘Subwing’, the unusual new adrenaline-fuelled activity involves diving underwater and gripping onto a 4ft carbon-fibre ‘wing’ that is dragged behind a speedboat.
Subwing is an incredible sport that has reinvented the way you can experience the ocean, where riders are towed behind a boat and have the ability to spin, turn and dive almost anywhere. Defined as requiring ‘little or no training’, and underlining the need to resurface to breathe ‘whenever you like’ the exciting new watersport has gained fans quickly. Beginners will typically spend between 10 and 15 seconds underwater at a time, diving to around three metres – but with more training and practice users can go much deeper and for longer.
