Get a top quality product for a top quality workout. The Obsidian Surge 500 Water Rowing Machine will keep your workouts engaging and challenging. Studies have indicated rowing can work up to 85% of the body’s muscular system without the joint impact of other conventional cardio exercises. This in turn results in higher calorie expenditure in a shorter period of time. Elevate your workout and be more efficient with the Obsidian Surge 500 Water Rowing Machine.


water performance

Row on the water in the comfort of your home. The water creates a smooth and steady rowing experience with every stroke. Instant resistance is available with the flywheel and 16 fan blades. The faster the fan blades spin the higher resistance and dynamic response caused by the harmonious interaction with the water, giving the user a unique experience.



The water rowing machine is designed with high-density hydro blades that work to create resistance during rowing sessions. The paddles rotate and push against the water while withstanding water corrosion and damage. Hydro blades are built to endure vigorous rowing strokes and will keep up with multiple levels of water resistance.



Constructed with light weight sturdy steel, for solid performance and durability. The 16 Hydro Blades mimic the dynamic movements of competitive rowing. Non- slip HD handle bar is sweat resistant and wide enough to accommodate different hand widths. Tear resistant mesh belt withstands the stress of repeated pulling. Keep the rower sturdy and level with the adjustable leveling end caps.



The R2 Fitness Meter is designed to accurately track all essential workout metrics i.e. Total Time, 500 m Time, SPM, Total Strokes, Calories, HR, Ambient Temperature, and more. R2 Fitness Meter allows the user to tailor a personalized workout or use the built preprogrammed features. Wireless connection with a compatible heart rate strap.

Compatible with ANT+ heart rate technology, like heart rate belts or watches, so you can measure an accurate pulse and monitor the effectiveness of your workout. When worn around your chest during your exercise routine, the pulse belt will transmit your heart rate to the advanced digital monitor. Heart rate belt sold separately.



Making the transformation of your home into your own personal fitness studio is effortless with these convenient transport wheels. Simply tilt and roll out for use or away for storage, no need for heavy lifting or muscle strain. The wheels at the front of the unit allow the user to move their equipment around with ease, from room to room, or store it away out of sight.



Non-slip foot pedals with durable nylon Velcro straps keep feet secure. Foot pads pivot to allow more freedom of the foot and ankle to ensure optimal rowing mechanics.

The large seat supports the hips and seat back to ensure correct posture and increase comfort during the workout

The rower does not come with the water prefilled, but does come with a hose and funnel to make filling and emptying the tank hassle-free.

The 16 fan blades provide unlimited resistance and a dynamic response caused by the interaction with the water. You can change the feel of the rowing stroke by adding or reducing water from the tank. While this technically this does not change the β€œresistance”, it does make the rowing stroke feel heavier or lighter.

Great so far!

I got my new machine assembled and then caught the flu so I haven't been able to use it yet. Well built and sturdy from what I can tell. Smooth and quite.

Heart rate monitor

Love everything about this machine. Only catch, heart rate monitor only worked with uncoded heart rate chest strap. ANT+ and Bluetooth not supported with Wahoo TICKR or TICKR X.

I love this rower!

I bought this rower because it was significantly less expensive than a lot of other water rowers and it had great reviews from others. I also liked that it looked nice...as a graphic designer I don’t like when there are crazy obnoxious logos all over my stuff. This machine looks beautiful and it is easy to use. Setting it up wasn’t too bad. I can’t say how this machine compares to others because the last time I used a rowing machine was almost ten years ago. I have used this machine several times since I got it and it makes me tired. I just had a baby two months ago and running or other workouts make my joints hurt because I still have quite a bit of baby weight (which is normal). This machine makes me feel like I got a really good workout without feeling like I am going to mess something up. I recommend buying it.

Decent Rower for the Money, Not Enough Resistance

Purchased this rower so that I could do light-moderate cardio at home while I watch TV or am just hanging out. For those purposes, it works fairly well; it operates pretty quietly and doesn't shake or rattle while I'm using it (I'm 6', 240 lbs so this is pretty good). However, if you are looking to do rower intervals or more high-intensity cardio I would just save up another $500 and get a high-quality air rower. Even filled up to the maximum level, the resistance is maybe equivalent to a 5 on the Concept2. Even at a full sprint, I can't get my heart rate up past 150 bpm. I also lightly bump the seat stop at the back, so I wouldn't get this if you're over 6'. However, if you just want to be active while you're at home instead of sitting motionless on the couch this rower should suit your need.

Blew me away!

Very straight forward to assemble, did most of it solo but had help just for safety towards the end. Holds plenty of water, used one full bucket and it filled up to resistance 4 which at first felt like it would be a piece of cake, but after my first real 30 min workout that got me to 2k meters, I was spent lol put some chill music on for a 10 min warmup and it complimented the water swoosh sound perfectly, very relaxing as well as taxing lol can't beat it for the price! If your considering it, definitely get it!
