So if you want to share your sessions with your friends or just know the statistics of your sessions. You’ve come to the right place.

The best apps for Wingfoil

There are several types of applications:

  1. l“Mobile only” applications, i.e. those that work in “wetsuit” mode. That is, in a waterproof pouch placed in the suit.
  2. Watch apps offer you better accuracy and more data (heart rate, etc.).
  3. There are also applications that require a “sensor” box, which is usually installed on the board. Mainly used in kitesurfing, it will be perfect for our jumper riders.

Mobile apps

Mobile apps are the easiest to use. This is because you don’t need to have an additional device. Your phone alone in a waterproof pouch placed in your wetsuit (in “wetsuit” mode) will be enough to track your session. Less accurate than applications requiring a watch or sensor, it will still do the trick.

Surfr app

Surfr app is a mobile app that allows you to track your kitesurfing sessions. However, it works very well for wingfoils, allowing you to use your mobile phone to take it with you during your sailings or a sensor to install on your board to measure different data from your sessions.

Thanks to the Surfr app, you can measure your distance, the height of your jumps, your time in the air and your speeds. This app works really well in wetsuit mode. Also offering you the option of being used with an Apple watch or with a sensor on the board.
