The BKSA are a having GPS Speed championship this year http://www.britishkitesurfingassociatio ... w/298/276/

At the moment im the only one that has posted any speeds so it will be very easy to be on the podium and maybe pick up a prize at the end of the year.

I know there is a couple of others that are already registered on http://50knots.xs4all.nl/gps-kitesurfing/gps.asp so next time your out strap on your GPS and post your speeds on the site and email the BKSA to let them know.

If you have a GPS that you can down load the info onto a computer then you should be able to post and if you need help just pm me and i will help out.

There's some top speed sailing sites around the UK and even on a twin tip you should be getting 30knots if the waters flat.

You get any up to date info on what GPS units poeple are using, whats new and maybe whats good or bad, would be useful for those thinking of having a crack!
I know there is some info on here already, but I'm sure it's out of date now!
Don't think my quad fin fish will knock out too many hairy speeds :lol:

This place sells the latest version of the GPS that we have been using at a good price but its so new i dont know to much about it apart from you will need a aquapack what ever you get.

If you fancy a go im sure we can hook up and i can lend you a propper speed board but even on a quad fin you could still be ranked second at the moment Tony.

Just wondered if your GPS has a built in Altimeter as well and is this accurate...... ie could you use it for a bit of local comp down the beach to measure jump height as well as speed ?

yes they have a altimeter but it dosnt update as fast as the gps so its no good for that kind of thing but if you was to walk up a hill it would be ok.
