How can longboarders better track their speeds and routes, while making it more social and fun?

 

 

The Challenge

Longboarding, like most sports, can be very competitive—whether it’s against other boarders or against your own record. However, longboarding, unlike many other sports, is very explorative—bringing you to new places in search of big hills and smooth pavement. These two elements bring about a need for better tracking of the speeds and routes of a longboarding session.
