Getting a new board soon. Strongly considering not putting PiQ mount onto it. I just feel that the jump measurements are inaccurate and I am getting too worried about height thus not being in the moment and just enjoying the session.

Very true indeed, keep it clean and simple and no worries just ENJOY instead :thumb:

i am looking to jump higher and willing to pay for it, for sure will get a woo4 the way things are going. where is the best place to stick it on a board to jump higher?

i did see i jump much higher when i swing my legs very hard upwards and snap them at the top followed by a very heavy deliberate body jolt about 2 seconds after landing very softly, hoping for 10% more likes when i get on the village woo height record for the day. #woo #wooking #wooker #woostance

that you you can just learn how to rig to be powered, hold your edge at speed and send it.. then no funny business needed.. you'll get your 13-15m on any woo
just saying.. here is a shot from our local guy from last saturday ;-)

Should go without saying to keep them as close as possible. A Woo on the toeside edge will move a lot more up and down than a Woo on the heelside edge.
How do you figure that? They are stuck to the same inflexible plate.

Just note, I think the woo sounds like a fun way to put some fun into a friendly session. I can't be bothered myself but its because I know I would never recharge the woo or get any data out of it.

Because of the edging motion the board makes. Heelside is always more or less near the pivot point of the board in the water. I guess it will give more consistent readings because of that too.

Do you think it won't matter at all, even though the instructions have you placing the Woo in the center?
