App Reviews

  • Still The Best Surf App/Website

    By markgellman
    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

    By surfsupsd
    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.
  • Best surf forecast app if you pay

    By mcheit891414
    Surfline is inarguably the best surf app, especially if you pay to be a premium member. I have been using Surfline since I can remember and have tried many other websites or apps as well. What is great about Surfline is that its consistent, more accurate, and they have detailed info about swells for regions and sub regions. Aside from the info, the UI is awesome and very easy to navigate and use. I also have watched so many pros surf through the Surfline cameras as they have cameras all over the world at all the best spots (where they can). Despite living on the beach i still use this app to check swell forecasts and the cams as well.
  • Used to be good

    By Csquaredofsd
    Surfline is a great tool! It used to be good for users that didn't pay for the service. It gave them enough information so that they could know a reasonable forecast and see what they wanted to see as far as cams go. But lets face it, Surfline has now made their service impossible to use for users who don't pay for their premium service. To the team at Surfline, do yourself a favor and just get rid of free use all together. It hurts you, the company, and us, the users, to get bombarded with ads, have none of the decent cams in our area work, and a one day in advance forecast that forces the user to upgrade the premium. You will have a much happier customer base if you are just honest and make your service an exclusively paid one. I wish you the best in your development!
  • Gave 2 because when it’s needed doesn’t quit pull thru traveling etc...

    By Chancequa
    I will say this I do love the app use it a ton! The only drawback is sometimes when either your traveling or getting a honest real prediction it’s tough! Tides and swell should be understood better or maybe throw them a bone or something? But let’s be real here this is in the realm of predictions of Mother Nature and we have not been kind to her.. or the view might be we can’t control it. But as far as app crashing sometimes, or for no reason spots disappearing on your “surf spot list” on the app then my bank being charged and then getting no service for a day or so while traveling seems pretty “Bunk island” anyway otherwise can’t complain.
  • Feel like I finally have an edge as a premium member

    By ECsurf025
    Now that several high profile cams are premium only, I feel like I have an advantage over the free loaders out there. Plus, I get access to their meteorologists which gives me a further edge. You can’t get that anywhere else. Didn’t really feel this way before since more was available for the gazillions of non paying customers out there. I now feel like a part of a special club, and as along time premium member, I wanted to say THANKS Surfline. You’re the best, by far.
  • Oh my gosh an iPad app! Thank you! Finally!

    By woushi
    Thank you so much for the iPad app. I have been waiting so long. I don't check the surf from my phone at the beach. I don't need to because I am standing there. I need to check it at home before I leave and drive 2 hours on PCH for nothing. But the iPhone app makes the video sideways and it was so hard to use. But now it's iPad optimised and I love it so much. Now I can view videos right side up before I leave the house. Thank you much Surfline. Now I won't keep cancelling my membership.
  • Go Surf!

    By Giuseppe D'angelo Liuzzo
    It's the 1st app I open in the morning when I wake up. A complete forecast from wave height, water temp, wind direction, swells, tides, etc.. as well as live cam video and I can even see what conditions to expect days-a-head. Find your favorite beaches from around the world (i.e. Pineline, J Bay, Trestles, Nazare) and watch live streams too! So much info in 1 app! So glad they have my local break (New Smyrna Beach Inlet) with moving cam angles so I can view the entire area and see how crowded the lineup may be as well as if the waves are fair, good or epic. Thanks Surfline!
  • Love this app

    By DaughterinOz
    Ok, first, As stated, I love this app. I don’t mind paying the price of a coffee monthly to be able to go online and see sunrises and sunsets. I love being able to project onto my living room tv as I listen to the sounds of surf. I wish I lived on the beach but this app, yes with its surf reports I don’t use much, is delightful. I wish more cameras were available, but it’s not like there aren’t plenty. If I can’t be at the each, this app still gives me some of the enjoyment of being there.
  • Best Surf App without a doubt.

    By SW321
    Love the cams and being able to see live footage. If you don’t like the ads, then pay the fee. I did and I love the app even more. You can’t expect a company to put up live web cams all over the coastal area and then give away their service. Ads or membership. I think the cost is worth it and the service and unlimited webcam access without ads is makes the app a must have for any surfer looking for good waves and limited crowd.
