Windsurfing Speedometer

Well this is great I am not sure why no one has thought of this sooner, hey never to late. It is a device that attaches to the back of you windsurfer and a digital readout on your arm (like a watch). "The sensor unit mounts to the rear of the board, with a small paddle wheel trailing in the water. The speed of the board is then updated on the large display strapped to the upper arm." Not to bad! I guess if I buy the Garmin ForeRunner 301 it might do the same thing. I like this device, called the "Saber" because it's simple, attaches right to the board so the only thing you need to remember is the digital readout that you wear on your arm. Pretty cool, this goes in my basket of cool toys to have.
