That sounds like a good Idea.
Here is my polar from todays little training session.
- Wind 12-15 Knots
- Hydrofoil: Banga
- Kite: Ozone R1v1 15m
- Lines: 14.5m
- Top speed: 31 Knots (500m)
- Distance: 21km
- Rider HF experience: 7 years

Wow, R1V1/Banga/Gunnar looks like a pretty good combo.
Top speed 31 knots and 17 knots net gain in the direction of a 12-15 knots wind. Looks fabulous.
Does it mean you maintained 31 knots over 500 meters?
Also looks like you avoid going 75 degrees to true wind.
Can you give the specs of the Banga foil? Mast length, wing area and span...
In 12-15 knots I use 8 or 6 FS Speed. I don't like to get scared and out of control, and that's why I'm not yet using my more advanced hydrofoil.
Maybe we could add in the parameters the watch used, not that it matters much. Mine is Polar (sic!) M400 which I prefer to my Suunto Ambit3 and Garmin watches which give me spurious results with a messed up polar. Still trying to find out the reason.
BTW advice for new users: set the GPS fix frequency to shortest possible, usually 1 second.
Hold more power, more direct feeling during maneuvers and the timing works a bit better for going at max VMG upwind/downwind.
