I fixed the problem with the touch screen getting triggered by water hitting the outside of case. I tried the screen lock app and it still did it, so I put a few layers of thin acylic over phone screen and it solved the problem. The app works great and I love the big display and real time data...All you need is a old phone(or new) and a waterproof phone protector.. I will definitely buy the case when available

What exactly is the point of sticking your phone on your board when it could just be safely inside your wetsuit? I guess live jump recording will be my answer...?

Correct. And probably more accurate recordings. That I don't know, but if I remember correctly that was the original main argument for mounting it.

I'm going to use my old phone - so if anything it should make my board safer having a GPS tracker mounted to the board.

The Surfr mount;

I have to say it appears to be of great quality.
I think it's a pretty big thing for my phone (XR), but it might be better for a bigger one..

The Surfr app uses the smart phone's internal sensors (accelerometer, magnetometer and gyroscope) to determine when you leave the water and when you land to more accurately record jump height.

If you put your phone inside your wetsuit/drysuit the inputs to these sensors are largely dampened, so the app can't record the takeoff and landing as accurately.

The Surfr App does have a "Wetsuit Mode" but it's not as accurate.
