Its finally here my fellow kiters. Tired of body dragging like a pro? Tired of that stupid board leash hitting the back of your head with a board connected to it? Tired of looking like a big fool while taking the walk of shame back to the beach with no board in your hand? Well look no further my fellow kiters, this is the moment you have been waiting for!

Sounds like a non-water proof version of Tile ( https://www.thetileapp.com/ )

It's waterproof! At least they say it is. But I wouldn't trust it, I would put a couple of condoms over it, and stick it underneath a foot pad.

I got some for the wife, who loses everything. It's bluetooth, so range is limited . . . you'd have to walk around trying to reconnect to it or hope the crowd detection picks it up.

It's good for short range loss, like keys in the house or car.

The Tile doesn't have a replaceable battery which would suck, especially if you're out of the US.

But that is what makes Tile actually waterproof. Salt water will probably still kill it though, who knows.

This thing is a a POS. I bought a couple of them for my dogs. They work about 10 feet away. They are relaying on a network of blue tooth users to obtain the signal.

They suck, dont waste your money.
