    Working at WOO

    At WOO Sports, we’re down to earth people. We are passionate action sports athletes that share a common vision. We are a bunch of hardcore engineers and professionals – some might call us nerds – with lots of “left brain” degrees and skills, but at the core of it, we are a “right brain” company. We live and breathe authenticity, honesty, emotion, creativity, joy and great product. We hope that the fun, passion, adrenaline and flow we experience when we go kiteboarding transpires through our products.

    We are not actively hiring at the moment, but reach out if you’d like to connect!

    Why We Started

    Life is unpredictable. In 2013, before WOO was founded, if you had asked any of us at WOO Sports what we would be doing right now, most of us probably would have had some ambitious dreams, but none of us would have predicted that we would be working in what we believe is the coolest place to work at on earth. Yet, after the seed was planted in various arguments and discussions after kiteboarding sessions at our local spot in Boston, it was almost inevitable that WOO Sports would be founded. The opportunity to build an awesome business, revolutionize kiteboarding and turn our passion into our profession seemed too clear.

    Kiteboarders and entrepreneurs share a lot of attributes – strong passion, the willingness to take risks and get out of our comfort zones, the desire to take adventures and do things differently — so it seemed like a no-brainer for us to create WOO Sports. It’s the sweet spot between our passion – kiteboarding, technology and entrepreneurship.

    Who We Are

    At WOO Sports, we’re down to earth people. We are passionate kiteboarders that share a common vision. We are a bunch of hardcore engineers and professionals – some might call us nerds – with lots of “left brain” degrees and skills, but at the core of it, we are a “right brain” company. Things like low prices, widespread distribution, obnoxious marketing or “good-enough” quality don’t resonate with us. Instead, we live and breathe authenticity, honesty, emotion, creativity, joy and great product. That doesn’t mean that we won’t screw up, but rest assured that we pour our passion into making you, our customers, happy. We hope that the fun, passion, adrenaline and flow we experience when we go kiteboarding transpires through our product. In the end, this is what WOO Sports is built on, and this is what all of us feed on day in and day out.

    What Our Vision Is

    If you bought our product, you most likely understand the profound and positive effects kiteboarding can have on your life. Kiteboarding, whether it being on a twintip, directional or foil, is the most surefire way to get into a state of mindfulness, flow, happiness and community. It’s something that makes you feel truly alive. As such, our vision is to use technology to drive people off their couches, away from their TV screens and out of their everyday lives into the fascinating world of kiteboarding.  As humans we are made to move, we are born to play, live outdoors and experience nature. We play with the elements, challenging ourselves and others.  With the launch of WOO PRO, we hope that we can encompass a broader spectrum of kiteboarding, and make everyone’s experience more fun, connected and safer. 

    At the end of the day, if we drive more people towards the unique and raw experience of kiteboarding, and we can say that we created happier, safer healthier lives for many of us, then, and only then, will we consider WOO Sports a success.

    The WOO.

    Say Hi to your new blue friend

    The WOO Sensor (the ‘WOO‘ for short) is the key to recording and playing during your sessions. Compare our blue little nugget to a Gaming Console, our different modes are the games, you are the controller! Get in the Game!

    It's Easy!

    BATTERY
    Long battery life (8 hours / 1200+ jumps)

    BLUETOOTH (BLE)
    Wirelessly synchronize WOO to your phone or tablet on the go

    9-AXIS MOTION SENSOR 
    Records relative position to determine jump height, airtime, landing force, trick performed, and landing quality.

    SHOCKPROOF 
    Designed to take a beating and keep recording

    WATERPROOF 
    Completely sealed to protect against damage

    CORROSION RESISTANT
    The device contacts hold up to repeated contact with water

    Mounting the WOO

    The long side of the WOO should follow the long side of your board, so that it’s PARALLEL to the board (not perpendicular).

    Independent if you’re a Regular or Goofy rider, the button on the WOO should ALWAYS face your RIGHT foot! We use the orientation of the WOO for correct Stance and Trick Detection. Set your stance in the WOO Sports App and the WOO knows if you did a trick in your normal stance (Regular / Goofy), or if you did it switch (SW).

    Where to put the WOO on your gear? The best place for the WOO is centered on your Kiteboard or Wakeboard. Check out the images below to find exactly what the best spot to mount your WOO is.

    *Note: wrong placement of the WOO may result in incorrect Stance and Trick Detection results.
