The Porto-based team with a Biomechanics Surf PhD and Mechanical background, All in Surf has developed and patented a device that allows data capturing during a water sliding session. Detected by an embedded sensor, all of the athlete’s movements and the flow of the water moving below the object sailing are recorded. The data is analyzed by an intelligent algorithm that assesses the performance and allows the athlete to evolve consciously. More recently it is also being applied to land based sports, such as skate.
