Need to test the Xensr - one local guy bit the bullet and ordered one from US but not been able to get it to work so far. Other people have found the jump accuracy about the same, but then it does have the GPS data which looks cool. The Woo seems to have (at this time) the community side of things sewn up.

What i really need is to be in SA that wind and those ramps (they are not waves in my eyes)... oh lordy!

This is the reason why the UK have only just received stock, they have had the recent updates all ready loaded. 8)
First off the Xensr is a multi sport gps but there are plans for a similar woo leader board for kiting too.
Regards the accuracy, time will tell.

Do you want one independently tested and a review on here... I can boost.

We did a test comparing the Xensr with the WOO.
It was quite shocking;

My mate who is an architect can look at a building and pretty much tell you how big it is to within a metre agrees - he said to me as I came off the water yesterday there must have been a few close to 15m today and for sure I thought I'd broke my 12.3 PB... but no the max was 10.2m and I feel for sure I went much bigger.

I think it might be an issue when it's really choppy as AFAIK it uses accelerometry and this might be messing with it, and yesterday was stupidly choppy. I need to give it a test in some flatter water - at least between waves to see, but for now I'm just not sold on how accurate it is?

Sooooooo many times I've had this same experience!!!
We've also got guys on the leader board with obvious dodgy readings, the woo can occasionally give a phantom reading, often way out compared to other jumps in the session or super low g force landings.
My problem now is weight, I'm 100kg and I think I've topped out at 12.7m off the flat.

woo is not accurate its a best guess within about +/- 20%. Thats a lot of error when you are talking in .1 of a meter. I have also found that sometimes when you get a second lift it confuses it, and breaks it down into 2 jumps or voids it. They are fun but its meaningless.

That's interesting.
I've had limited use of mine, but did get some odd results.
I'd love to hear the programmer say how he's constructed the algorithm, so we can ride appropriately.. or effectively that should be.
How accurate were the kota jumps? did anyone have a look at the jumps vs actual measurements?
it's still a good idea, and glad no cheats have managed to hack into the codes like they have done with strava and garmin...
