FitBit tracks your calories. And FuelBand tracks your Nike “fuel.”

But whither the device that reports on life’s more diverting pleasures — like, say, air time on your backside snap.

For all your ollie-rific trickery, there’s ActiveReplay’s Trace, a Reese’s Cup-sized device that attaches to your surf-, snow- or skateboard to measure speed, distance and air-time.

Developed in L.A. by the rocket scientist who helped Magellan commercialize GPS and new to Kickstarter, Trace syncs your performance with your phone (iOS or Android) and presents your stats in stunning infographics.

Or, in their words: “Trace can identify a tre flip down ten stairs, detail every turn on a 100-yard Rincon right and measure a backflip off a 20-foot kicker at Mammoth.”

To ensure it takes a licking and keeps on spliffing, Trace has been tested by pros, like the skaters at The Berrics.

And you can share all the data it collects on social media.

By share we mean brag.
