1. A sensing unit for monitoring performance data associated with sporting activity, comprising:

  • an airtime sensor for sensing movement along a surface and for generating first electrical data indicative of the movement;

    a power sensor for sensing energy imparted into the power sensor during the movement and for generating second electrical data indicative of the energy; and

    a controller subsystem for processing the first electrical data to determine airtime and for processing the second electrical data to determine power, power being defined as proportionate to the energy.
