It's the woo then, bit of an odd one, not seen anyone else having this problem.

I listed a few apps I created in the first post of this thread. If you have any other app ideas, post it here, it might get developed :D

I use a windsurfing app for Garmin by Georg_R
Doesn't have jumps but I don't care about that

The only thing that bothers me about the Woo Garmin APP is the inability of to pause it while doing a break at the beach.
It has only the option to stop & save or stop& discard... hence i finish with 3 diferent sensions and I lose track of total duration, total distance of that particular day, and makes it more dificult to share with m8.And if I do not stop it, it skeews the km/ph ratio and total time on the water.

Thanks for the feedback :thumb: . Pausing shouldn't be too hard to add - I'll check with WOO and will probably add this functionality to the next release. Pausing will also be available in the next release of WOO app for Apple Watch, so it will make it more consistent with Garmin :D

I'm also starting development of a kitesurfing dedicated Garmin app for people without WOO. Everyone please feel free to request the features you would like to see there. Thanks :thumb:
