Re: I made a tool for turning Garmin/Strava GPX tracks in to polars diagrams

I tried uploading a .fit file to your site at 0946 am, US east coast time, and followed it with the corresponding .gpx at about 0948. Hopefully the site saves a copy of these files so you can see them (?). I could email you one also if you like, but the forum doesnt seem to support doing this either...

Re: Plummet Mutant V3

Looks cool. In my light wind waters I’d go a couple cm wider, but that should shred when its big/blowing. I’ve never ridden a board with 15mm concave so cant say a lot about that, except, it’s a lot. Maybe if the tail is flexible you could have a continuous rocker through the quad end, with the conc...

Re: Hey surfers whats the difference betwen swollow tail, V tail and regular?

About that last point, I want to see pictures/video of a swallowtail in a big turn with significant water visibly shooting through the crack and over the deck of the outside/upper tip. Have I been missing out?
I love round tails and squash tails...

Re: Superfast twin tip?

Anything narrow and stiff will get you pretty fast.
Like 30-35cm wide, slight continuous rocker, a little more rocker at tips, only heelside fins....

.fit is the current output of applewatch, newer garmin smartwatches etc. it contains extra data for athletic training and health - Heart rate, stride, foot or pedal cadence, maybe more. I don’t know how to post one from my phone.

Could you build a .fit to .gpx conversion into your page?
Parameterize heading, time and distance buckets?

Re: Convertible challenge

All true. :thumb: Unless i really end up loving this board for surface planing, it may some day become a ~2kg pocket foilboard if I shorten it to about 110-120cm (It’s about 0.52g/cm^2). I used some 45/45 fabric to keep a hair of flex so it is tolerable surface riding in chop. If core was thicker i ...
