The 3.5m – 4m-long boat is enclosed a 2m-long paddle and a lifejacket.

To play this sport, players must to pump the boat according to the signal of piezometre in the pump; then wear the lifejacket and fasten the safety cable on their foot. When rowing the boat, first players should sit, then kneel and stand gradually. Due to the lifejacket and safety cable, players are safe when falling the water.
