F!Row / Yawing Athletic Rowing Boat



Athletic rowing has one big disadvantage. The athlet sits backwards to the driving direction.

F!Row is a foldable athletic rowing boat. The advantage is, the athlet sits in driving direction and can choose between the "rollausleger" or "moving-seat" rowing style.
The insight rowing base on the simple principle of the "trapezausleger".

Another big advantage is the interfoldability. The small footprint is good for storage and transportability.
