What about:
The goal is to offer a kind of Windsurf or Kite Surfing feeling unit. Currently, the Wind Turbine Boat is available and four race courses.

You need additional fastening equipment:
Slings like TRX, resistance band, and harness. It’s primary a unit for use in gyms, but if you have the necessary equipment, you can also do it at home.

How to move:
We recommend attaching the controller to your inside wrist (Grips), but not necessary. By leaning to the side, you can change direction, right for left, left for right. The more you lean back, the more speed you get. If you stand upright, it will stop. You can step a little forward to move backward. Note there is an ocean stream.

What you have to do:
You can cruise for yourself, or you can do races. On race, you have a start gate (green), then red gates, and a finish gate (black). You have to go through them one by one.

The radar arrow will show you the direction and distance to the next gate or object.

Move earnings (ME):
Is our general fitness currency that shows your achieved performance.

Attention the workout can be dangerous

Be careful, certain use of equipment can pose a risk of damage to you and the equipment!

It’s not a joke, you have to master some training equipment. You have to know how to operate it in virtual reality and you shouldn’t take any risk. You have to start slowly and feel your way. You can cause yourself serious harm and damage equipment and the environment!

You will make unusual sideways movements to change direction on the equipment.

Prevent overturning, loosening
First be sure that the training equipment does not overturn and it is well secured!
Do not attach to cabinets or other movable furniture. This is dangerous and can be fatal!

Always be aware of how the equipment moves
Always be aware of where and how your equipment is. You don’t see the equipment in virtual reality.

Be aware of dangers
There are many dangers, test the dangers in reality first and be aware of them later in VR!

Keep You Safe

Take care of your body and environment!
