Global kitefoil speed leaderboard?

Postby twig » Thu Dec 12, 2019 5:09 pm

Hi all foilers!

Is there an existing speed leaderboard similar to Woo but for kitefoil racers? like showing top speed, then best 100m/500m/1000m etc.

Now that kitefoil is growing all around the globe it would be interesting to compare with the locals/country's best/ global!

It would be great if there would be a website to just upload your xml/gpx file so that it's not mandatory for everyboy to get the latest watch of some brand..

But maybe there is already somewhere?

Thanks!

I'd be interested to see this not just for overall top speed, but given a particular foil/kite/windspeed, just to be able to compare gear this way. I know not everyone cares about it, but I think it's fun to try and hit top speeds even on non-race foils, but those speeds obviously wouldn't be competitive with race gear.

That’s windsurf only

The kite side closed down as no one was bothered or were claiming stupid numbers as kiters just didn’t get that the GPS actually need to be accurate rather than the read out on your camera.
