Needs Work

The whole game it's just level after level. Sometimes you just wanna free ride a wave, but you have to beat a wave twice to unlock free ride on said wave and the second time you try to beat a wave you have to use different moves that you have to unlock first. So you basically have to play through most of the game just to unlock free ride on certain waves. If you just want to ride a wave without doing the challenges you can, but you'll lose your lives (you only have 20) and then you'll have to wait for them to regenerate or pay to get more. Overall the in-app purchases rule over the game which is no good. You can't buy anything in the shop unless you want to pay real money. You can't even watch ads to get free money it's all in app purchases. When you ride a wave you can't get too deep or you lose which I think is stupid considering their definition of "deep" is like 2 feet into the barrel. Overall - Not enough game mode options, too hard making it not that enjoyable, too much in app purchases, barrels are nearly impossible with their measuring system, and the awesome/good/thumbs down points system is rigged and I hate it. Just let me surf and give me a little slack. Sometimes you do perfect moves but get a thumbs down. I don't want the points system or at least give me a little slack. Game is fun and can be better, but it just needs some work.

Nobody paid me to write this review, nobody from the journeys front office contacted me to boost morale with the ratings. Str8 up this hands down the best surfing game I’ve ever seen. I dunno how stickman surfing got 5 stars over this one, no offense to the stickman campaign but for real to the consumers this game is gross, I’ve been glued to it for a couple weeks now. Realistic waves for at least the maybe 6 or seven spots I have in reality surfed. I don’t know what else to say other than it is a realistic surfing game with simplistic controls and something like 300 waves I’ve barely dented being stuck on like Region 12 of 26 on Wave 5 or something. Conquering in Battles or Challenges Online is Pride on a Plate.

Mostly good except the barrel levels

Having played through to Brazil, I have been mostly enjoying the game. It is the best surfing game available so far and generally does a good job at what it aims to achieve.

Good points:
Good controls
Good options for tricks
Good practice shows clearly sweet spots
Many levels, so plenty to keep me busy
Good learning curve as you level
Relatively good wave graphics

Bad points:
The barrel mechanic is very punishing
Huge risk to attempt barrels at boss
Barrel levels often require 10-60+ tries
Some barrel levels need “perfect” timing
- too slow and you bail
- too fast and you leave the barrel
- very high precision needed to stay in
Progression stops at barrel levels
It is borderline frustrating
- adding barrel practice would be nice
Did I mention I don’t like barrel levels?

The 20 “lives” limit isn’t so bad. It isn’t so noticeable except in barrel levels. Recharge all lives in just over an hour.

Really looking forward to free surf

Worth checking this game out! Thank you very much for making the game!
