So, in creating this app, I have found that started to take note of how my take off looks on the graph. That’s a biggie. It also directly impacts my ride quality and length. Depending on the wave shape, if I angle a little bit more I can get right into the face of the wave and just cruise down the line. On beach breaks, I know I need to push harder on the rails to really engage and escape the lip that is clearly preventing me from getting more distance. However, what’s been rad is that I get to see how fast I go. In one instance I went around 20 mph. That’s pretty darn quick. I remember that wave! I marked it as a favorite in the app, and actually created the favorite button specifically because of that.
However, I need to do more and that’s what is going to be fun. Being able to see how many waves you catch per hour is good info to have. The more you catch, the better you’re getting. Once we start linking that with tide data and surf forecasts, things are going to get super cool.
