SEGMENTS ON WATER

 Hi,

many people on SUP (Stand Up Paddle) put theirs rides on Strava.

I create segments at every run, but on water, you can't take the exactly same way, except start, finish and some way points

Do you think it's possible to force or put manual matching segment for water activities?

 

En français :

sur l'eau il est quasi impossible de suivre exactement la même trace (trop d'écart avec la dérive, l'altitude évolue également en fonction des vagues...).

En paddle il y a de nombreux tours et l'enregistrement permet de suivre ses performances comme un vélo de route, car bien souvent, on fait les mêmes parcours.

Je comprends que Strava n'arrive pas à matcher automatiquement, mais il faudrait pouvoir depuis le menu 'potential-segment-matches' forcer la correspondance avec des segments existants. A ce jour à chaque passage, pour quelques mètres en parralèle, le segment dévie de 39%...

Dans la performance sur l'eau (paddle par exemple), seul compte le temps entre deux points, quelque soit la distance (vous pouvez aller chercher des vagues par exemple).

Merci pour votre intérêt à ma question.

Cordialement / Regards

  • There is a need to make water segments better. I just did the South Dakota Kayak Challenge and I made segments for legs between the first four check points. I know other people completed these segments this year and in years past. it would be nice if a segment had a setting for tight paths (like the current setting) and one for loose paths that allow people to have more varied path such as 1/2 mile off the original path as long as they hit the  general start and end point. My activity matched me with one of my competitors but it did not match his run to the segments I created.

  • Agree with previous posts, Should be a simple task to add other activities to the Create Route option. Went for a 2,8km paddle but can't create a simple route to show where we went or get a better estimate of the distance. I expect Strava has many priorities but this is a dead simple change and a year is a long time to ponder …...
