THREE YEARS AGO
Three years ago, Surf One was started with a simple question: What if you could track a surfer’s performance the way an athlete's performance is traked in so many other sports? Not everyone has the opportunity to experience surfing and it can be hard to for the non-surfer to understand what they are seing. For those who do have the surfing experiance, they don’t have the tools that athletes in other sports have to track progress and improve performace. Cyclists have sensors to track speed, distance, and elevation. Formula 1 packs sensors into each car for constant data feedback. Runners have sensors built into their shoes to help them better understand what is happening while they train. In surfing, there have been previous attempts to to measure performance, but these were inaccurate, cumbersome or a combination of both.
