Go to forecast app 4/5
Love the app but it needs to support landscape viewing mode on an iPad.
Pretty Accurate 5/5
I use this app for fishing on the Northern Pacific Ocean. So far it is a bit more accurate than NOAA and goes out two weeks so I can give buddies the heads up that the ocean may be fishable. Really necessary if persons have to take time off.
Awesome app that is worth it’s weight for water enthusiast! 5/5
Thanks! Ron Koz

By Su Glez
Always work, very accurate and easy to use. 😊. I had others apps in the past but this one is the best!!!
Magic Seaweed just works 5/5
There are a lot of surf forecasting apps out there, but M. Weed just works. Nice UI, and forget all the data points except the star rating — Very nice and in my experience all you need to know; besides water temp, which is also important when you surf where I do. Cheers!
Very usefull, al the information I need to monitor the waves for good surfing
Atlantic Beach, NC 5/5
The Go to forecast

Hands down best surf report app on the market 5/5
By Definitely NOT Jay
I couldn’t live without it.
Go to app for free surf forecasts 5/5
I’ve been using Magicseaweed’s website since I lived in Oregon and surfed Pacific City back in 08’, probably before that but can’t remember when I started using surf forecasting (yes I was alive and surfing in the days before internet forecasting, back then the newspaper-I am from Cape Fear region of North Carolina-was the source for a forecast, though then, as now, the most accurate forecast is still on sight forecasting), but its always been spot on in terms of predicting groundswell, there isn’t a surf forecasting program alive that I know of that accurately predicts wave height, which is a fickle thing depending as it is on so many factors including shifting sandbars in both NC and Oregon. When I say spot on I mean accurate for groundswells days in advance in my experience...it also has useful information about the various surf spots in your area and includes historical data, all for free. The historical data is quite interesting as it gives you the statistical average percentage of rideable wave each month going back to like 2007 for some spots, along with percentages of ground swell vs. windswell, average height of swell/wave for that month and average height for each day and maximum height each day. This is free!! Other forecasting sites don’t even do this at all. It’s not my go to for general weather forecasting, for that I use Windy, but for it niche, its the best you can find.

Great surf and tide reports, used them on-line, excited to have the app. Must have if you love the ocean!
It works 5/5
This app does exactly what it’s supposed to and is always accurate
Good forecast tool 5/5
Accurate forecast with a good variety of the breaks around New England. Only addition needed is a network of cams.
Swag Surfing 5/5
This app is lit
Way better than Surfline in my opinion. Had a lot of issues with updates, plus I don’t want to pal for 3 days out surf report... just sayin’...
Does everything it says it'll do & more, Plus it never crashes, or certainly hasn’t ever for me and I’ve been using it for years. Rocksolid and tells me what I need to know before I take the drive down to the surf.
Excellent tool for surfers of all levels 5/5
A must have if you are traveling abroad.
Great reviews and summaries for a non-local 5/5
Sailing through French Polynesia and this is the app the gives the best summaries and forecasts. Love it!
Florida loves this app 5/5
I’m from Florida and check this app daily for my local conditions and add locations when I travel for surf. Love the articles and insights. Really reliable and well maintained. Thanks MSW

By the dude of Cordova
Awesome for info from anywhere in the world thanks
Awesome for surf fishing 5/5
It’s my go to for tides, swell and wind. Ya can’t ask for better info! Also it’s more accurate than the local tide charts have been lately! 🎣
Love the app 5/5
This app is great for letting me know in advance if the waves are going to good for the week, and it is free! Accurate most of the time and saves me gas. Only thing is that they need to add Assateague Island, MD as a surf spot!
Way Better Than Surfline! 5/5
More accurate. Better details. Longer more extensive forecast. More specific breaks. The star rating system is super sweet, let’s you know the precise quality of the waves.
Best surf app 5/5

This is the best surf app. Easy to navigate. Quick results. Best I’ve found.
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.
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.
