  • What are the guesses of the speed of an average New York wave, how fast do you think you are going?    My guess is on small days about 10mph and bigger days 15 to 20.

  • GPS has allowed for measurement. You're guesses are correct, with professionals approaching 30mph.

    This is an interesting article on speed and distance traveled at the 2011 Quik Pro. Incidentally, sometimes we are traveling the fastest when we cut back:
