the issue

Skateboarding is growing both in popularity and credibility. It’s great exercise, and not everyone’s cut out for team sports, but skateboarding is hard; over 50% of kids quit within the first year. RYZR is here to help.

The system

RYZR operates as mobile app and a device, connected via blu-tooth, that attaches to a skateboard between the trucks and board. It measures most imaginable metrics involved with skateboarding; Distance traveled, vertical gain, speed, airtime, and even board rotation. RYZR can tell you the name of hundreds of complex tricks as you land them and give tips on fundamental technique such as how to position your feet, how to time your pop in order to better nail a trick, and as you improve, it rewards you with badges to share on social media. The app also features global leaderboards, and a skate spot finder.
