Ocean Conditions 5/5
Very accurate swell & wind predictions
Very Helpful App 5/5
My go-to forecast whenever I am lucky enough to break free and take a quick trip to the coast to surf. Has always accurately predicted conditions and provides all the info I need. Very easy to use!
Mother Ocean 5/5
This is a wonderful App makes checking the surf report and conditions easy and I also like the layout of the charts 🤙🏼🤙🏼
Almost Perfect 4/5
By cold water whale
The forecasts have been right on target. The only thing I would add would be a glossary explaining exactly what each element represents and how it impacts surfing conditions. I.e what does the degree of a wave do for the conditions?
I don’t surf 5/5
By S4Steve Ducati
I use it to time my coastal landscape photography.
I wish I could look at past tidal history.
Solid app! 5/5
Great app!! Use it all the time.
Essential for any surfer serious about surfing during the best of conditions.
I live for apps like this! I have been using MSW for a year now and not once have the tides or swell conditions been incorrect. My only request would be that you add Bethany Beach, DE as a location. Even though it is a tourist beach in the summer, it can be pumping in the winter and I would like to just check the app for conditions. Other than that, it’s all good.
Magic Seaweed rocks in Ecuador... 5/5
Thanks for the great surf forecasts for our beach break in Canoa, Ecuador... big tide changes, usually spot on.
Legit one of my favorite apps to check it out before you get out. Solid go to
Great app! 5/5
By Delmar Halford
Really good and as accurate as your going to get! Way better than surfliner!
Love the Magic 5/5
By Jamacan Eskimo
My go to forecast for surf in Gulf of Mexico. Not only does it tell me when to go to the beach it also hints at when I need to evacuate. In fact, magic seaweed wave forecast twice beat local tropical cyclone alerts in my area at warning me of trouble in the gulf. Magic seaweed rocks!
Dig it.... but I’d like to see a little more. 5/5
MSW has been my go-to forecasting app for years. I do wish I could customize the settings to notify me if one of my saved spots is predicting a specific “star” rating in the forecast. Say one of my spots is gonna have a 3 or 4 star day, I’d like a push notification. The ability to pick which spots I get noticed on and pick what star rating I get noticed on (1-5) would be legit.
Let’s make this happen MSW! (If I can already do this, cool. Please tell me how lol)
Best tool to catch some tasty waves 5/5
App is right on most of the time.
See ya in the water.
I trust this the surf forecast more on this app than Surfline
Better than Surfline 4/5
I like this app more than Surfline and I find it more accurate but I’m more of a diver so I really wish this app included the water visibility because I am yet to find an app that shows that
Tide info is helpful. Wave info. It so much. 3/5
On the some of the smaller east coast beaches I’m not seeing the report being on the same planet with the what the ocean is actually doing. As with everything it’s a good tool to have but not what your trips should be based on. A good webcam is the best. MSW shows 3.5 and 2 stars for me right now, it’s ankle, shin at best and looks more like a lake.
A rating 5/5
By Tropical Miss
Beat surf report I’ve used.
Great app for the fisherman too! 5/5
I’ve been using MSW for appx 2yrs now and I gotta say from a fisherman’s point of view, it works perfect. Wind, wave height and tides are what matter when you surf fish. Love the fact that the forecast is dam close to spot on.
Excellent graphics, accurate, simple 5/5
This is my preferred information source.
Almost as good as having a friend look at the surf from their living room window
Good for long range 4/5
The long range forecasts are accurate, but for day-to-day conditions, other apps, like Surfline seem to be more precise. At least for southern California.
Magic Seaweed . . . 5/5
More than surf... 5/5
By north chicago boater
We have a boat on the north side of Chicago, and don’t go out on Lake Michigan unless the water is fairly flat. We are thus “reverse” users of the app, and use it to help figure out when there will be no waves at all. It is the best predictor we have found for this so far.
Swell direction 5/5
By DJ COOL BREEZE
On the swell forecast they need to write down what type of swell it is. There are only arrows which isn’t helpful
Great surf app 5/5
Much better than Surfline.
Accurate locally New Smyrna FL. 5/5
By Mosquito Lagoon Fish Camp
Great app, love checking out places I’ve surfed around the world and spots I want to surf. Appreciate not having to pay for the app to get a forecast. Thanks!
Completely incorrect tide and wave conditions.
Most Helpful and Accurate 5/5
Work on the beach here in South Florida. Magic Seaweed is a great assistant when setting up our beach furniture for an optimal display! Tide table and future wind forecast.......can’t work without them now!!!
Great app 5/5
Well designed, easy to use. Forecast is accurate.
International quality 5/5
I studied abroad in floripa Brazil, and sure enough they use magic seaweed too! Great app!
Love it, then Surf it! 5/5
Why drive around to different surf spots waste time & gas when MSW can direct you to the your Holy Grail.
Best chance to score 5/5
As a sales rep I cover the whole state. The app helps me plan my surf schedule after I map out my sales calls. Every time I get local knowledge on a spot I add it to my favorites.
Great App 5/5
Saves me time, gas and money. Magic Seaweed consistently puts me on the best waves at the best times. I love the way they rate the conditions in 3 hour incriminates; extremely helpful.
Best overall surf forecast app 5/5
Easiest to use, convenient, no bs, check the surf height, tides, and wind direction and speed in seconds. Highly recommended
Best surf forecast!!
Finally they responded so let’s see 3/5
By Arr Shiver
Live data buoys were being displayed 8 hours late and some of our most important data in Hawaii ignored. Hence good surf missed or boats led astray. Hopefully now it will be more accurate reliable and an app worth using here.
Don’t go to the Shore without it! 5/5
By One way please
I always check this APP for the stats before going into the waves.
Add new location plz? 5/5
Hey I give this app 5 stars no questions! It’s very accurate and helpful. My only complaint is actually a request. Please add the Pensacola beach pier as a location on this app. As a surfer and skim boarder around this location the tides and swells tend to be different than the other closes beaches on the app. Other than that I will continue to use this app no matter where I am, it’s amazing! Thanks for listening!
It works! 5/5
Helps me prepare excuses for friends invites when I know it will be too big for my skills. Lol
simply the best
Decent surf forecast 4/5
I use this for forecast but still check videos right before I go. I don’t think I’d use this to pick one nearby spot over another, but it’s good for seeing when it’ll be good in a general area and then using videos to pick the break I go to.
Great surf forecast app! 5/5
By Karsten Sargent
i’ve been using their website for a couple of years now. as soon as i heard about the app, i downloaded it and it’s better than any other forecast app or website i have ever tried. I use it to plan ahead for future surf trips, and it helps me plan where i want to go. definitely a 5 star app
Kayak Fishing 5/5
This app is perfect for the yak fishermen! I fish the Gulf of Mexico and knowing surf conditions is crucial.
es un gran app para mi lo usó cuando voy a surf in the Panama Bay. Thanks for the 7 days Free!
Better than Surfline 5/5
Far superior to Surfline giving swells and intervals and wind speed and direction for free
*accurate wave height too
Nice app 5/5
By OBX Sup
I use this to get a idea of tides and size surf.
Major Beach not listed! 2/5
By NTP 1216
I know most people wouldn’t think of Chicago as place were people are using this app but they would be wrong. Paddle boarding/surfing, windsurfing, and Kitesurfing are huge sports here. The rules are strict here as far as where one can “launch” their boards. In fact the two beaches are Montrose beach and North Avenue beach. This is also where we store our equipment. You have North Ave. listed but Montrose beach. This would be in my opinion the best app out there if only Montrose Beach in Chicago was listed which is the Number 2 spot for this sport in Chicago. Is there anything that could be done to add Montrose to app.? Thanks
Great way to check if the conditions are right! 5/5
I like to keep check on the conditions before taking my boat out and I always find this app reliable and easy to use.
I appreciate that it gives you a seven day report that is pretty accurate and detailed and the best part about it it’s free not like other forecast that want to charge for there report.
