Best surf app 5/5
I always check the waves before I go surf.
Save time and put me right on the best spot!
By Easy St.
Keeps me in touch with the ocean on both coasts. Lots of very helpful information. Wish there had been something like this when I started surfing 55 years ago!
Takes the guess work out of surf 5/5
How did we do it back in the day. Surfline is a cool app that does help you know before you go. Very cool. Surf on.
Recent update breaks cams 2/5
A recent update really broke the cam streams. I used to be able to bring up the live video streams very quickly, and they still work just fine on the website. However, the app now just stalls, even on a solid WiFi network.
Nice layout 4/5
It’s an accurate app. Just don’t know if it’s worth the money to pay yet. If it's an app I’ll use more often I might go premium.
Thanks Surfline 🤙🏼 you rock
Apple Watch App 3/5
Really enjoy and utilize Surfline daily on all platforms (Phone, tablet and browser).
When will there be a Apple Watch App?
Incredible functionality on mobile 5/5
By New HH Fan
Not sure how they do it but streams are beautiful and never have to buffer. It's amazing to flip through international cams at work effortlessly while I wish I wasn't sitting in my cubicle

Great app !!!!
Great App! 5/5
Easy to use and accurate information.
Beyond Epic 5/5
By Chris Lavender
Gold standard for anybody interested in weather conditions at the beach! The app is buttery smooth on both my iPhone & iPad, and everything works seamlessly with the new website. Now I can pop on literally anywhere I am and quickly check conditions of my favorite spots. Considering the use I get out of it over a year, Premium is a no brainer.
Cameras are very slow to load on iPhone 7s 1/5
By L Drums
The app used to work great, but latest updates have make the app slow and cumbersome. Tis a shame.
Saves time 5/5
I own a business and work 7 days a week in Ventura, Ca. This app is awesome, it helps me to schedule surf around work. It also helps me to figure see where is the best location to go. Not all my favorite places are listed, but LOLA, wind, swell direction and tides tells me when they are happening. I highly recommend it!
Always consistent 5/5
Rarely is there a glitch for me, always works great.
Easy and great quality feeds.
Great surf app! 4/5
Always up to date on the forecast and the select sites with camera footage are fantastic!!
3 star because of the cams 3/5
I give surfline a 3 star because of the quality of the cams and how few issues there are with them. As well as how many they have all over the world and 6 hour forecasts. However, surfline has VERY INACURATE FORECASTS(long and short term). I only use premium because of the cams. Surfline needs to figure out what LOLA stands for(swell prediction). Use swellinfo.com instead. Surfline needs to use NOAI forecasting.
Love this app. The cameras are super helpful in real time to see the surf before we take the boards out. Tons of locations on the West Coast. Would definitely recommend!
Does what it should 5/5
Great with premium
Good cameras, sometimes slow loading. 4/5
New app has a nice layout with large screen high resolution cameras to check spots. I like that you scroll down for written info like tides, temps, wind, etc. Only problem is cameras are sometimes slow to load.
Gave 2 because when it’s needed doesn’t quit pull thru traveling etc... 2/5
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.
So far so good 5/5
So far this is the best app I’ve seen and does the job great.
I’ve only used the free portion of the app so far and that part works well for me. I’d love to unlock the better features but the price is to expensive for as often as I’m getting out.
Much improved! 4/5
Lagging behind the website forecast map but hopefully it'll catch up soon
Still the best 5/5
I wasn't sure what to expect after our hero Sean Collins passing. But you guys have continued to come through with a seamless easy to use app that is referred to by our Santa Cruz Sentinel newspaper on the front page weekly. Keep up the good work!
Best surf APP ever 🤙🏾 5/5
Thank you guys for making the perfect surf app 🙏🏽 much Aloha and Mahalo from kauai, HI 🤙🏾
They have a new app 5/5
So far the new app looks like it is easy to use.
I’ll have to give it a few months to see how it works.
Great app for cameras 4/5
By Matt Keyes
I think the cameras are great and the forecast tools are similar to the website. The only improvement I would like to see is with Lola. I think smoother rendering and an overall update on Lola and nearshore models would make this app a 5 star. Still a great app overall.
Surfline keeps getting better. Very useful for fishing information, too. 5/5
By Tommy's iTunes CP
I can check out the surf, tide, wind, wave action, and other fishing related info and assess the potential for conflict with surfers and surf fishing. Having the cams on the two fishing piers nearby is a real advantage! IPad compatibility will be a tremendous improvement.
The best 5/5
Best surfing forecast out there, bar none.
Shred the gnarly tube man 5/5
Shred it, like step 1 go to pipeline step 2 meet john john Florence and Jamie obrian step 3 go get 20ft tube at pipeline and step 4 look us up on instagram @twingroms
Basic functions and $70/year to still have to see ads?! 1/5
I’m editing my original review after using the app for a year now. If I’m paying $70 a year for bare minimum of a cam and a small write up on conditions and I deserve to have more. This is not worth the cost for such basic functions and still have to see advertisement. I have a great list of functions that should be added below to improve qol this app desperately needs.
A warning about automatic renewal. I have mine set up to automatically renew through the App Store and have a receipt of payment and my premium services have been suspended. I’m paying for a service I can’t access and that’s not okay.
When you’re generating revenue from advertisements and a paid subscriptions I expect top notch experience and it’s not even close. I think it’s time to invest into some new features like live updates from members and carry over some of the beta website onto the app.
**Old review** (Pretty great app as long as you're a premium member. Otherwise the cameras are hard to watch with all those ads. They improved the camera organization which it really needed but it would be better if it could be organized by a sort feature. Like sort by best conditions, distance from location, popularity. Maybe even add a feature to write reviews for locations or update current conditions. The other day Scrips and La Jolla were rated 1-2ft with poor conditions. Really it turned out to be 2-3ft occ 4 with fair conditions. Just my 2¢. Either way I recommend it as long as you're a premium member.)
Necessity in today's busy life 5/5
The best way I know to keep an eye on the surf.
Lacks features and has ads even in premium 3/5
Why hasn’t surfline invested in a sorting feature for my favorites spots but has figured out a way to show ads everywhere even though I am a premium member?
Stars for different functions 5/5
5 stars for predicted surf and surf contest live feed camera action. 3 stars for short surf videos. Sometimes videos redirect me to click bait sites or when I click on watch video here there is no video to watch.
Excellent app! 5/5
Love it! Recently moved away from California and this is the perfect app to know the current and upcoming conditions for whenever we visit. Keep up the awesome work!!
Allen Maxfield 4/5
Don't care much for the upgrades but sure beats driving or walking down to check the waves.
By old kayne
I LOVE IT!!! Definitely worth getting
Easy & awesome 5/5
Thorough forecasts and super easy to digest the info
Great app 5/5
Really enjoy this application
Good forecast and tells me when I should go out
Let's be real 5/5
It rocks very accurate
Do not go premium. 1/5
I’ve wasted $70.00 for a premium subscription for an iPhone 7 and I feel that I have been robbed. Worst of all I still get commercials, my regional forecast has been blank forever, and none of my 4 locally selected beach cams work. Save your money.
Calling all kooks 1/5
By Chateau Martel
This app is pretty weak and full of bugs. And the reports are bull**** as well
Surfline on point 5/5
This app is awesome! I check it on the regular
I use it and it works for all my needs.
By A pro Scooter Driver
This app is one of the best forecasting apps for surfing there is and there are livecams too!
Sadly I'm in Germany and staying here for a while so I have to deal with a lot of depression not surfing and seeing all other people surf and be happy. I hope I can get back to the USA soon
