Maui based performance instrument maker, Velocitek, has announced the release of the Makai, a board-mounted GPS speedometer and training tool for SUP. The Velocitek Makai is the first GPS speedometer specifically designed for standup paddleboarding. The product was developed on the North Shore of Maui (birthplace of modern SUP), in collaboration with the world’s best SUP athletes.
Some of Maui’s finest AND fastest including Jeremy Riggs, Connor Baxter and Andrea Moeller also use the Makai.
Each device is $339.00 Includes FREE Priority Mail (United States Only) shipping and comes fully charged.
As featured in my newly released book, How to Increase Your Stand Up Paddling Performance, Beginner to Elite, in Chapter One “Gear Matters” and of course in Chapter 11 dedicated to downwind paddling; the Makai is showcased and referenced as the best training complement for any paddler at any level.
I suggest this amazing training tool be added to your training program. When I collect data from my clients who are serious about improving their overall performance, it’s a key reference bench marker that allows us to fine tune his or her paddling performance results.
Even if you don’t race it’s the best motivating tool besides having me next to you. Challenge yourself and go to the next level and let the Makai help you get on the podium.
How it Works: The Makai uses the same technology as the Velocitek sailing instruments on America’s Cup World Series catamarans. The device measures the Doppler shift in GPS signals to calculate speed twice a second. This gives paddlers the realtime performance feedback they need to get faster.
The Makai’s large digits allow you to check your speed, distance and elapsed time at a glance so you can pace yourself and refine your technique without breaking stroke to look at a watch. The Makai’s simple and secure mounting system was designed to survive the North Shore of Maui. The product comes with two low profile mounting plates that make it easy to switch the product between boards.
Three modes provide the data you need:
Ready Mode – Speed only
Race Mode – Speed, distance and elapsed time
Results Mode – Maximum speed, average speed, distance and elapsed time for the session
