The Easybreath snorkelling mask allows you to see and breathe underwater just as well as you would on land. Many people have difficulties when breathing underwater through a snorkel, so Tribord invented Easybreath, the first full-face snorkeling mask to let you breathe through the nose and mouth. This innovative mask provides a large, unobstructed 180Åã field of vision and is prevented from fogging up by a dual air flow system identical to the ones found in domestic extraction fans. To stop water re-entering the snorkel, the mask is equipped with a mechanism which seals the top of the snorkel when submerged. The snorkel is highly visible to avoid any collisions on the surface, and is available in pink, blue and lagoon colours.

The Quadrofoil is the first all-electric personal hydrofoiling watercraft. The Quadrofoil is thrilling, yet quiet and ecofriendly. Its silent motor and zero emissions enable it to ride on lakes, rivers, seas and in eco-zones where most motorboats and PWCs (personal water crafts) are not allowed. Using clean technology, the Quadrofoil comes with an all-electric outboard motor and special steering system, so not a drop of oil goes into the environment. It flies over water at a cost of €1 per hour and has hardly any annual maintenance costs. Aerodynamic design and precision engineering give it a cruising speed of up to 20 knots with several times better efficiency than the best PWC.
