Great app. Does what I need. Speed in knots, runs etc. The opening screen is black on the vivofit 4s, but it still works fine when you get going. Thanks!

Very poor on VivoActive 3. Avoid it, lost 3 session. Syncing problem, saving issues, not usable. Use rowing and change the activity later.

Unfortunately this doesn't work on Fenix 6, crashes between few seconds to few minutes.

When it works it’s ok. But the app makes Fénix 6x crash, the only way to get it working again is to turn it off. The button usage is not clear, every button is “hang loose” for when you are going, or “rest” for when you are not. But you can’t turn it off, and it does not ask you whether you want to save the track or not, and sometimes the data comes out as if you were running instead of windsurfing. This is not even a beta test, more like a z....

Hi, same as said before. On vivo 4 black screen at the beginning, but works. Where can I see the map after my session? I can see all data but no map in the connect app.

Als je wilt uploaden naar gps-speedsurfing.com zorg dat je op je horloge ( mijne een vivoactive3) je instellingen goed hebt staan. Dit kan je aanpassen door te klikken op: instellingen, systeem, gegevensopslag, kies hier voor: op ‘iedere seconde’ . IQ error, heb ik soms, dan verwijder ik deze app en installeer deze opnieuw, soms vervelend maar de enige oplossing.

Funktioniert auf Forrunner 235 einwandfrei.

Hi there, I noticed that the average data is quite off in reality. In avg. data is about 2-3 knots low compared to raw GPX data analysis by gps-speedsurfing.com. Also I noticed that the 250m average is sometimes slower than the 500m average, how can that be possible? Love the idea of having a quick overview, but when the data is far from accurate it does not make much sense. If you need some examples please let me know. Would be great to have it display accurate data. Also it would be great to set the display data fields during recording to display max. Speed for example. Thanks for developing and contribution to Windsurfcommunity.

Hi Lennart, gps-windsurfing computes the "linear speed" over 500/250m, that is the average speed you actually ran for that distance. My app computes the speed you ran on average between two points which are 500/250m away from each other, as if you surfed on a straight line. Of course this yields lower figures. A 250m value that is higher than 500 should not be possible. Can you send me some data with that effect?

Happy with my vivoactive4 wich i bought 2 days ago. Unfortunately the windsurfing app doesn’t work properly. When i start the app all i get is a black screen and nothonh else happens. Hope this issue will be fixed asap! Anyone who can recommend me wich alternative app i can best use for windsurfing? (Until the bud in this app is fixed)

Hi, on some watches the start screen seems not to be shown anymore for reasons I don't know yet. Anyway, just press your start button to get the next screen und surf

I really like the App. This weekend I noticed something strange. On my watch display it said fastest 10s 27,3 knots. Later when syncronising with my phone it said top speed 24,5 knots and the fastest 10 's a little less. What can cause the difference?

Super App. Funktioniert tadellos und zeigt alle relevanten Daten an. Vielen Dank an den Entwickler.

Ich nutze die App auf einer Garmin Forerunner 245. Die App integriert sich gut in die Garmin Connect App. Es gibt im Prinzip keine Einstellungen zu machen (bis auf die Einheiten der Geschwindigkeit). Sessions werden aufgezeichnet und sind am Handy sichtbar. Auf dem Display der Uhr erscheint allerdings während der Aufzeichnung nichts ausser dem Logo der App bzw. des Aufnahmemodus! Kurz: Die App tut was sie soll, ist schlicht und leicht zu verstehen!

Doesn’t work on my 735xt: shows “Hang loose” message, vibrates, and finally freeezrs on IQ! screen. Sometimes shows the session screen, but after a few seconds to 2 minutes freezes withthe IQ! Screen again.

Hi Kesha (and others), there is nothing I can do about such a review except writing that the app works fine in the 735xt simulator. Please use "contact developer" and I'll get back to you in order to resolve the issue by reading your debug information files etc.
