Please include elevation gain data in “kitesurfing “ activity type.

I have a challenge with recording my kitesurfing sessions. As soon as the activity is loaded as “kitesurfing “ all of the elevation gain data disappears. This is one of the most important stats when I am doing jumps. Is there a way to fix this?

Thanks.

  • Hi there... isn’t anybody interested in kiteboarding stats?

  • It seems like elevation gain in something like kitesurfing would be very unstable. I don't know of any devices that could accurately record that kind of data. It would give you something, but seems like it would be totally random as to how accurate it was. Heck, when viewing elevation data for even mountain biking, there are a lot of errors. I go on trails that have a lot of quick ups and down of 10-15 feet and it doesn't record much of anything.

  • Fair point... you need a good device to get it right... for example Wahoo specializes in stuff like this for kiteboarding... but even with less accurate devices, this would allow to count number of jumps, which is a good stat on it’s own.

  • The sessions app can record this.  It's not super accurate, Woo devices are better, but at least it's something.  Certainly technically possible for Strava to do this.

  • All i am asking Strava is to not remove the elevation data after it loads an activity from Garmin. This shouldn’t be too hard?

  • Hi Guys, I started working on a prototype of something similar to Woosports, much cheaper though, who wants to spend 190 USD on a device alone that does not even include a GPS. message me at r.sacchettini[at]live[dot]fr if interested ill tell you more, looking for "guinea pigs"/ testers. Cheers.

  • For some reasons the US strava website created a new account, my main one, is this one https://www.strava.com/athletes/15643205 so to check that i'm actually kiting and not just a new troll, or spamming account. If you look at my last year's activities, dones 40km+ kiting down winders.
