Description

Surf Tracker: Track your surfing sessions in real time! This data field estimates the number of waves ridden using speed, time and distance thresholds to mark the start and end of a wave ride. Detailed info: https://forums.garmin.com/developer/connect-iq/f/showcase/521/data-field-surf-tracker</p><p></p><p>**This is a data field not an App...this means that you add the data field (ConnectIQ - Surf Tracker) into an existing Activity (SUP, Paddle, etc) and set it to 1-field layout (ie. 1 page). </p>

Não consigo passar o app para o relógio, fica apenas no celular!

le he instalado en los APP de Paddle Surf y Natación, pero cuando lo activo al momento de surfear, no se mueven los datos, se quedan todos en cero.

For some reason, it does not recognise right waves at all, even during long and fast rides...could it be because of the bad beach facing detection? Guys please help me with that.. Add Beach Facing Detection measurement as a option before hitting START 1) Calibrate compass - Ok done that 2) Point watch 12 hand at waves perpendicular to beach - what does that mean? 12 hand? 3) Go to data field page and get a stable/reliable heading - where should I go in order to do that? 4) Hit START I am a little bit disappointed for now, but thanks for your effort mate...

That sounds about right. Double check the compass is really calibrated (with a fig 8). Point the top of the watch towards the waves, 90deg to the beach. You can always enter your beach facing direction in settings instead of measuring it.

Finally!! This is amazing! Great work my friend. I've been waiting for this. I bought the Fenix 6 Sapphire to last through my ultras, track HR with a strap and was hoping to track my surf. Your app brings it all together. Where can I donate?

It's super great - works every time I use it and is quite accurate in counting waves :-) However - Wave ride distance is apparently wave ride distance is not calculates 'down-the-line' and measuring the actual distance covered, but is instead the distance moving forward? /or am I wrong? And if you made a simple tool to view the individuel waves registered it would be extremely nice :-)

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
