Update: Much has happened since the Tu Fin concept was first published on Yanko Design roughly a year ago. We been presented that they now have a full working prototype and well be showcased at the coming Munich Trade Fair Centre. Congrats to the Tu Fin Team!
Tu Fin is a new sport, operated with body strength boat. At 8 meters long, it offers place for a driver and one passenger. The driver is looking forward while driving the boat. The body movement activates almost all groups of muscles and ensures thereby holistic cycle-strengthening body training. With it Tu Fin connects the advantages of the fitness training with those of the Nordic Walking – a complete body Workout in free nature.
