Ratings and Reviews
Surf line is something I check everyday
The true surfer mentality is to go no matter what but go where is what surfline helps. When I'm at my desk I can watch the jobless groms sherd until I get off work and run out to the southern California chop I know it's choppy cause surf line tells me so. Sunset and pch? Nope tides too high. Thanks surf line. Also I paid for the surfline premium it's worth it. So I can watch the venice cam and think nope it's still a beach break.
Woah trestles.. Too far but I know it's good because of surfline. County lines the only place getting surf. Drive an hour and a half thanks to surf line and get there for it to be just as packed as first point. Surf line is cool, but it'll say it's poor out and I'll have the best day of my surf life. So don't always trust it. Trust your gut go to Topanga during low tide. Destroy your board and quit surfing. Forever.
Also the hurricane updates and swell reports are tight. Something to get hyped about and tell your wife a week or so in advanced so she doesn't complain that you surf too much
Still The Best Surf App/Website
Yes I agree that the ads are a bore (but there aren't any though if you're a Premium member), but it's a minor nuisance to bear for access to accurate reports and a beautiful interface with the most cams available. It occasionally has crashed on me too but rarely recently. For my 80 or so bucks per year Premium subscription for extended web forecasts, having this companion App is a dream and i actually use it more than the website everyday. Well worth the cash and minor nuisances - when the App is down due to location reception issues, going directly to Surfline Mobile on the internet usually will work unless one's cell signal is close to nonexistent. I agree that controllable cameras would be ideal but with their subscribership it would probably be impossible (can you imagine playing camera tug of war with 5000 Chads and Kimos at your favorite spot). Let's stop whining - you pay more and it isn't perfect but it's pretty darn good. Disclaimer - I'm not on their payroll).
App works poorly on iPad, missing key forecast tools
One of my biggest complaints about the app is that it doesn’t work well on an iPad at all. Doesn’t support landscape mode except for cam feeds. You can’t search for spots without adding them to favorites, which is annoying when I’m looking at places I don’t frequent but just want to check, unless you go to the map view. But when I’m looking at spots in California or Florida from New England, I don’t necessary want to scroll on a map. Probably the most salient missing feature is the nearshore model tool, though. Living in New England, where a lot of spots are missing from the site, nearshore is often the only way I can get a sense of what individual spots will be like, and I have to use a browser or computer for that. The interface is useful for quick checks, but for those of us who are often on the go and rarely at a computer, those key tools are sorely missed.
