I’m new to surf ski paddling. Curious what the recommendation for speed measurement is? I’m looking at the Garmin 910 or maybe the SpeedCoach GPS wireless. Any thoughts?

I've been using Sports Tracker on an iPhone, keeps track of your route and speed, and it's a free app. Of course you'll need a smart phone and secured on yourself or boat in waterproof case.

I second Jeff's recommendation.
Those early Garmins are great if you just want speed and direction for training or racing. Color and touchscreens don't belong on the water….

The 201 is particularly nice because it has an integrated rechargeable battery. (Water eventually finds it's way into battery compartments…. and changing batteries in the 101 and 301 is a PITA.)
