Terrific app! Been using it a few years and it's second to none. Full of features, highly customizable and great technical service. Thanks Jean-Michel!

I'm using the app for windsurfing on Fenix 5S Plus. Great app. Thank you very much to the developer.

J'ai une Vivoactive 3 Music et la version 2.79. La novelle version 2.81 ne s’installe pas. Que puis-je faire?

C'est normal actuellement car les serveurs chez Garmin ont subi une attaque ransomware mercredi dernier donc, il faut encore attendre un peu avant que la situation ne revienne à la normale. Mais depuis ce jour, vous pouvez installer ou mettre à jour des applications avec Garmin Express (mais encore avec Connect). Voir le status de la situation ici: https://connect.garmin.com/status/

Great app! Works perfect!
I’m glad to pay the few Euros for this.
Much more worth than a ”free” app thats not working! Thank you so much Jean-Michel, great work and thank’s for very fast response...

Super appli Kite pour ma montre. Validation rapide de la version payante, pas si chère pour le service rendu. Je n’ai pas encore testé la partie saut mais l’algorithme utilisant le baromètre et l’accelerometre, ça me semble prometteur.

Excellent!! Working with what our watches can actually do and putting together such detailed analytics is so exciting. Constantly improving the app is great! Adding the local weather is so simple but a genius addition!
Would you be able to recommend which algorithms we should use for height for which watch? I'm using Garmin Fenix5plus.
2020. svibnja 31, Surfy66
Hello David and thanks for your nice comment. About your question, you can see these suggestions in the descriptive text of the app (or in the user manual) at the "Note about jump calculation algorithms" section, here: https://www.jeanmichelgruber.com/applications-garmin-garmin-apps/jmg-app-wind-kite-surfing/english/

Great app everything is ok.
2020. svibnja 06 | Verzija 2.60
Thanks to the developer for the hard work, the app is quite nice but ill like to explain my experience. The height its not real, the other day i was jumping 20 meters, and thats impossible because i cant jump even 10. Sorry about that. Also i would like to set the screens differently, there are many numbers in the screen and to little so you can not see clearly in a quick look. I recomend to the developer make it more configurable. Anyway thanks, this revew its just for improving the app if is possible. Kint regards

Hello Ramon and thanks for your comment.
First, the app offers 3 different algorithms to calculate jumps, one of them should be accurate depending the watch model used.
Secondly, all the screens (except the main and stats screens) can be displayed or not, depending your needs (options to check / uncheck in the options menu).
Finally, there is another screen called "Wide Screen" and displayed only during navigation, where data are displayed in a bigger font, and is fully customizable with data you can freely choose (speed, time, chrono, avg speed, last jump, etc) in the "Wide Screen" menu.
So, I do not see what I could do to be more flexible and configurable. But, if you have any suggestions, you can send them to me by email.

Awesome app and very active developer !!
2020. siječnja 13 | Verzija 2.45
App is quite nice. I like it. At the moment 3 out of 5 stars because the jumping height and hangtime for kiting is not correct on Fenix 5S. Waiting for an update. When this is correct 5 out of 5.
2020. ožujka 06, Surfy66
Hello Christoph, and thanks for your comment. Since the version 2.47 on this model, I've introduced a new algorithm for jump calculation (always by selecting the accelerometer method), and the results should be now far more accurate than the previous calculation method

Misleading. This is a fully paid app and NOT pro version configurable requiring a purchase.
Strongly recommending to read the website for an app... that's so 1990.
First time using it, had to go and purchase it.
Screen to busy as well.
Not worth it, many other apps or date fields available.
Sorry, doesn't work for me.
2019. prosinca 27, Surfy66
Misleading ? Everything is explained here and on the website, just need to take the time to read the explanations and, finally, it's up to you to purchase the app, or not. If you can find such pro app on the store for this kind of sports, well that's great, it's perfect.

Incompatible with all fenix 6 models!
- in map mode the fenix is crashing
- temperature bug (only in Fahrenheit)
- manual is outdated and wrong
- wind Efficiency angles & its red/orange/green light system (good idea in theory) are wrong indicated, bad explained & not useable like this
- faulty statistical screen (right after session) for the summary of wind efficiency angles
- totally wrong values for jump hight (acceleration sensor I used for sure)
- faulty after ride analysis integration into garmin connect (most of the values you will never see again after you have started a new session on the watch) - who the fu*k exports manually this data
- previous sessions are not visible anymore
Be careful - the developer is annoyed by his own buggy software & there is zero support.
15€ basically for nothing :(
2019. prosinca 13, Surfy66
Well. No support? I counted dozen of emails from you since months and, as always, I replied to all of them, except your last one because I thought I’ve had already answered to your question. Maybe you didn’t accept my answer ...? I don't want to argue (no time for that) but, for example, you write "Incompatible with all fenix 6 models! "- where did you see that? or, "in map mode the fenix is crashing" - as explained to you many times before, this is a Garmin issue since months and difficult to turn around (different behavior between the simulator and the watch) but, I have probably found a solution that I will add to the next update or, "temperature bug (only in Fahrenheit)" - this bug (only appeared for a while on F6X) has been fixed for a long time now so, why write this here now? You are supposed to update the app, are you doing it? Better than that, I even sent you an email to inform you of this update, was I obliged to do so? Last thing, which borders on fake news here, as I already explained to you by email, it is not possible to load in an application the data from the previous sessions saved into a FIT file, this is just not possible at all because Garmin does not authorize it (one direction possible, application to FIT file only) then yes, sorry for not being able to achieve the impossible. In summary, a rating of 4.5 and lots of good reviews for a buggy and faulty software even used by several users in race and competition, wow, what a great performance! How can this be possible ...? Ah, I know, probably a bugged and faulty Garmin rating system… Oh, and the price of the app is not 15 but 13 euros (or 16 USD), probably an oversight on your part.

awesome app! full support! deserves the 5 stars! Congratulations on the development!

I have been using this great app for windsurfing since August 2018 (I started windsurfing in 1977). I reviewed it in October 2018 and gave it 5*. Since a year has now passed, I thought I would give an update. I still give it 5* because it has functioned so well. I would give it 6* if I could. I would also like to comment on developer support. I have contacted the developer three times and each time received a prompt helpful reply. The first time was before I bought the app and was a question about how the app functioned. The next two times were after I had been using the app for some time and concerned minor suggestions that might improve the usability. I was amazed when the developer not only found solutions to these suggestions but had them released in an update, within one week each time! If anyone is wondering which wind/kite surfing app to buy, I definitely recommend this one!
2019. listopada 05, Surfy66
Hello Douglas and thanks for your nice comment, I really appreciate it. In fact, yes, I put all my know-how and skills in this application so that it is the easiest, reliable and pleasant to use for everyone
2019. rujna 29 | Verzija 2.34
Need to be able to see the current time while using the app. Otherwise excellent
2019. rujna 30, Surfy66
Hello Hugh and thanks for your comment. You can already see the time while riding: just set the minimalist screen (Options Menu - Display Screens - Wide Screen) and choose time data for one of the 3 configurable fields. When riding, the minimalist screen will be displayed, and you will have the time displayed too, with a large font.

sympa pour se donner une idée des sauts mais j'ai comparé avec un piq il y a pas photos. trop de faux sauts, pas top precis, et temps faux aussi bref je l'utilise plus
2019. kolovoza 17 | Verzija 2.27
Very good appli easy to use. I have been using it now for a week and very happy with it. Last not least, the developper is very reactive answering questions.
2019. kolovoza 11 | Verzija 2.25
Excellente application, fiable, pro, must have pour le Kite.
2019. srpnja 21 | Verzija 2.21
Nice app. Since ver. 2.20 it is now possible to view the height of the last jump right after landing. I recommend all kitesurfers to test it! I do not have a woo to compare, but the values seem ok.
2019. srpnja 21 | Verzija 2.21
Amazing app! Work perfetto!!! Super!
2019. srpnja 20 | Verzija 2.21
The owner îs very nice guy . He solve my problem with instaling the app with very much patience .
2019. srpnja 18 | Verzija 2.20
Très bonne appli pour le kite ! quelques ratés dans certains sauts mais bon c'est très sympa. Developpeur à l'écoute. Avoir la longueur des sauts, pouvoir retirer les écrans dont on se sert pas et plus d'infos sur les sessions dans le connect serait bien.
2019. srpnja 18, Surfy66
Merci SebWind pour votre commentaire. L'application vous donne déjà la possibilité d'afficher/cacher certains écrans (menu Options - Display Screens puis, cochez/décochez les écrans souhaités). Concernant la longueur des sauts, c'est une donnée sur laquelle je peux réfléchir à intégrer dans une version future de l'application. Quant aux informations enregistrées dans le fichier FIT (au nombre de 21 au total, graphs + résumé), il me semble qu'elles sont déjà relativement nombreuses et détaillées pour avoir un très bon aperçu global, et détaillé, de chaque session effectuée.
