  • Provides Distance (km, mi)
  • Elapsed time
  • Maximum and average speed recall
  • 40 hour rechargable Li-Ion Battery

Optimize your stroke without interrupting it - The Makai's big numbers let you see speed, distance and elapsed time at a glance. You can pace yourself and refine your technique, without interrupting your stroke to look at a watch.

Built to survive Maui - Velocitek is based on the North Shore of Maui. The Makai was designed to the specifications of the professional SUP racers who live and train here. The result is a product that can handle extreme conditions.

Hydrodynamic Design - The Makai's shape is optimized to minimize drag while deflecting spray away from the screen.

Hit the water. Now. - Like all Velocitek products, the Makai makes sense without a manual. It only has one giant button. Velocitek guarantees that you will be able to figure it out in a few minutes.

Check your Stats - The Makai recalls your maximum and average speeds for a session to help you track your progress and evaluate equipment choices

A battery that goes the distance - A rechargable Lithium Ion battery gives you more than 40 hours of paddling time on a single charge. Plug the included USB cable into any Mac, PC, or smartphone charger to recharge.

Easy Mounting - The Makai comes with two low-profile mounting plates so you can conveniently switch it between boards.
