What's Subwing?

Book a trip with us for Subwing Gili and find out how to glide through the water with a Subwing board. This board is built from two separate "wings" which are connected to a boat with a rope to pull you along. Easy to get the hang of, you'll soon be performing twists and turns while watching the ocean life around you fly by. The boat will start by pulling the rope slowly (less than 2 knots) so you can get adjusted to the Subwing and movements in the water. Once you get used to the movements, the speed will increase to a maximum of 4 knots.

Everybody can easily learn to control the Subwing board as this activity is suitable for both adults and kids (from age 12 upwards). It’s a great group activity that can be booked to leave from Gili Air, Gili Trawangan or Gili Meno (see transfers tab) and it gives you the perfect chance to explore the colourful reefs and sea creatures surrounding the Gili Islands.
