pidrop will offer you the following features

Position

Our goal is to share your position including ride data in real time with your friends or other kiters on the beach. Lost your board? pidrop makes your board smart, so you can track its position in real time and find it again.

Safety

pidrop has the goal that you can kite more confidently in the future. Your friends or family should be able to check if you are riding or floating in the water. They should also be able to be notified when you go out of a predefined area.

Ride Analytics

Perfect for days when you just want to cruise on the water. With pidrop you will be able to record every ride on the water. You want to evaluate your exact cruising distance or know your maximum speed, pidrop will record this and other relevant data related to cruising on the water.

Real time positioning of the board

pidrop is intended for individual kiters and also for use in kite schools. When practicing, it is easy to lose a board, which can be located in the future and is therefore easier to find. Neither individual kiters nor kite schools should lose more boards in the future. With pidrop we want to make kiting more sustainable and minimize the financial risk of losing a board.

Evaluation of the current speed

With pidrop, we want to be able to automatically detect when your board is floating in the water. If the relative speed changes over a longer period of time compared to the average speed, then we want to notify your friends or family and show them on the map where your board is and the radius in which you are potentially located.

Position notification based on geofences

You like to ride a downwinder, cover long distances and your friends or family can’t see you anymore and wonder where you are? No problem, with the help of pidrop we would like to inform about your current position. And even better, if you are kiting alone, set a virtual boundary and pidrop will notify your friends or family when you go outside of it.
