Abyss Boards is a new company, check us out at abyssboards.com. The Abyss Board’s patented design consists of a main deck and two independently controlled wings. When towed behind a boat or watercraft at about 10mph the rider can rotate the wings and dive to about 10ft. The rider can safely control the dive and ascent, while performing barrel roles, flying upside-down and exploring the depths like never before. Breathing is accomplished through a standard snorkel. Simply ascend enough to for the snorkel to penetrate the surface, take a breath and then dive again to continue exploring.
With virtually no learning curve, anyone who can breathe through a snorkel can ride the Abyss Board. The rider’s safety is an integral part of the design. When the tow vehicle stops, or the rider lets go, the buoyancy of the board brings it to the surface. The board is not strapped or attached to the rider in any way. The rider simply holds on to the two handles. Since the board was designed to be used with a life jacket, the rider will always float back the surface.
