"Numbers don't lie. The Makai is like having an on-the-water coach telling me if my technique is making me faster or slower. It lets me see my speed when I paddle, providing instant feedback on my course choice, water currents and actual performance."

"The simplest and most useful GPS system I have ever used."

"The Makai has given me a better understanding of how important it is to maintain proper paddling technique. When I add power and speed up my cadence, it doesn't equal a faster speed unless I can maintain good technique. I've also found the Makai to be helpful during downwind runs; at the end of a glide and I can tell wether or not I need to speed-up to make the next connection."

"Finally a GPS for stand up paddling with all the important data in one clear display. I use it everyday for training and races. It's a personal motivator that keeps you up to speed and is super simple to use.


After winning the 11 City tour 4-times I know how important it is in long distance races to know your speed and distance to the finish. That's why I use the Velocitek Makai."

"I find the information from the Makai very useful. For example, North Shore glides are big, 13 mph to 17 mph and then the no-glide speed goes down to 5-6 mph. On the south side runs, even the big glides are only 10-11mph, but the no glide speeds are way faster at 7 - 9 mph."

"A great training and motivation tool... Its big readout makes it easier to use than looking at my wrist device and it keeps me moving."
