SUP Surfing with the Garmin Fenix 3

I managed to squeeze in a nice little SUP Surfing session on Monday and decided to try out the Surf Tracker app on my Garmin Fenix 3. The conditions were nice, a gentle SW breeze and 2 foot surf rolling into the beach at Ynyslas. The sun was shining, the temperature was almost 20ºC but...
