What metrics can I get with the KANARA Sport water sports app?

With the KANARA Sport app, now you can track the following metrics:

  • Total Distance: Your total accumulated distance traveled over the course of all sessions.
  • Average Distance: The average distance you travel in your sessions
  • Total Activity: Sum of total time you have spent in your sessions
  • Maximum Distance: The total distance you have ridden in a single session
  • Average speed: Average speed, per hour, you have reached throughout all your sessions.
  • Maximum Speed: Highest speed, per hour, you have reached
  • Max Speed 500M: Your maximum speed reached among all runs of 500 meters or more that you have achieved across your sessions.
  • Max Speed 250M: Your maximum speed reached among all runs of 250 meters or more that you have achieved across your sessions.
  • Max Speed 50M: Your maximum speed reached among all runs of 50 meters or more that you have achieved across your sessions.


You have the option to review these metrics in the metric system (km/h) or in the nautical system of measurement (M, kn).

The following metrics will be available very soon!:

  • VMG Upwind: Your maximum upwind speed achieved
  • VMG Downwind: Your maximum downwind speed achieved

Important note to former app users: In KANARA Kitesurfing, our precursor app, we identified irregularities in speed measurement and reporting. Our studies indicated that there are many factors, such as momentary loss of GPS signal, that can affect the accuracy of the reported data.

In our new app, we have implemented an algorithm and other measures to overcome these issues. We continue to revise and improve our platform to provide the best user experience.

To preserve the sanctity of the rankings, we have reset all records, but preserved your total distance and points earned. If you have any questions or concerns, please email [email protected] for more information.

I still have questions, can you help?

Sure! We have a close relationship with our users so that we can better understand needs, troubleshoots and improve the overall experience!
