Yeah, looks really cool idea! Kitesurfing sport really has the community spirit and I can see the product letting everyday surfers to actually compete without need of actually driving of flying to a competition :)

Our vision is to turn action sports into a big online game - play Tony Hawk skateboarding in the real world vs. the TV screen. That's why WOO Sports created the WOO - an innovative wearable for action sports that measures things like airtime, jump height, g-force, slope conditions, among many other key metrics.

Interesting idea, though the site didn't help me understand how the sensor would adapt for other action sports (freeski/snowboarding, skate, inline, etc). I was a semi-pro freeskier back in the day and this seems really cool, but number of jumps/highest jump don't seem super applicable. Though the hangtime counter would be fun (esp in the halfpipe).
