Crashes on open 1/5
Weeks, thought it was just an update. Restarted and still does not fix it.
The Best Surf App 5/5
By Davie Becker
This is great for checking conditions before surfing. Never surf with checking Surfline first.
Premium did not work 2/5
Purchased premium but then it says “can not activate premium, see iTunes account.” I go to iTunes account and the subscription is there. So, now I am charged a subscription fee for nothing until someone decides to get back to me
They’ve Gone Corporate 1/5
By Chris the W
Just cancelled my Premium subscription because they increased the price by $30/The forecast is often wrong, and now I see that quite a few cams aren’t available for free anymore. Talk about screwing over your base.
The best 5/5
By Mr. Sneller
It works great on my iPad or iPhone
Surf check 4/5
It’s a great app but need to be more beginner friendly to convince ppl to purchase premium. Be more revealing
Keep up the maintenance of cams or upgrade for better resolution.
Great from the beginning 5/5
They've been around along time. I've used them before they were in the apps store around 98-99 they continue to improve. Great job Surfline !!!
I use this all the time before a session 5/5
This is so accurate, I always use this before every session to make sure the waves are good, what kind of swells, tides, literally everything you need. You don’t even need premium to enjoy this app.
Very disappointing recurring issues!! 1/5
I’ve been a premium member for years, and I’m very let down by this app. They post a video forecast twice weekly. The audio will not work on any IOS device I have. I need to either send it to my Apple TV or some sort of external speaker to hear the video. This is true not only for my iPad, but my iPhone. Now there’s content on their app that will play through the IOS internal speakers. But why they don’t fix this bug for the video forecast, I have no idea. I’ve also opened problem reports on their system, and they don’t respond. They want your money, but they don’t seem to want to fix the bugs on their software. This is bad business in my opinion! I will remove this poor review when they simply fix their tech issues. If you add up all the subscriptions they receive, I’m sure they get enough capital to fix a small bug like this!
I received a response from David, and he has asked me to ‘turn the sound on.’ I’m not sure why he states it that way. Apple has a feature where you can turn your ringer off, and still hear video content, etc. On the Surfline App, there is plenty of video content that works while the ringer is set to silent. Also, other IOS apps play video sound as well when the ringer is turned off. Surfline’s take on this is that we’ve turned our volume off. That’s not the case. The ringer is set to silent as a user option for those who don’t want to disturb others with a ringer. However, they don’t seem to want to fix this issue, and even if you’re headphones are plugged in, the sound wont work. Come on guys, let’s fix this like the rest of the video content on the site!
A Must! 5/5
By Lucca St. George
Any surfer should know Surfline is the most reliable surf website. It’s even better on the app! 10 stars!
Too efficient. Don't get this app if you live near me. 5/5
The surf is already so crowded and this app is just too good at predicting and then showing you every nook and cranny of every coast in real time. It just makes finding surf too easy. Don't buy this app. I'd like some uncrowned waves for myself.
Quick, easy and accurate information. Excellent app, I use it everyday.
The best surfing app 5/5
If you are A surfer this is a must have app with Surfline I’m able to plan my surfing trips to the best break in the world I depend on this app every day
I love looking at the spots before I do dawnpatrol
Web is better. Premium has ads. 2/5
What is the point of the app when the web version of surfline has more charts and features? The app makes you guess the current time on the tide chart and weather charts. Plus, even in premium, they have ads, which is a rip and misleading.
Very nice 5/5
Good reports and great video feeds!
What I would do to have Surfline start in September 1964 5/5
You know how many evenings we would be surfing perfect waves till dark, then be so stoked that the surf was going to great in the morning, we would stay up all night, crack it first light. Only to have daybreak 20 foot and onshore. Hahahaha
For forty years we had no idea what tomorrow would bring. When you woke up, what see, is what get.
Go to school flat Chuns, come home 6 foot laniakea. Etc. etc.
Epic to Priceless 5/5
I love Surfline!
Can’t live without it!
My determination is made in seconds on where I’m headed
To Dip My Stick!
If you Surf, take yourself to the
Best spot in the Water with
Great app helps a lot. 5/5
The app is great and I really appreciate the time the put into it, the one thing is though for the conditions when it says poor, fair, good e.c.t. The one that confuses me is when the app says Lola I do not know what that means so for the things like that I would like surfline to add a description of what it means. It is a great app overall though.
2 stars for the 2 days non premium members get 2/5
With the recent update the app brutally punishes you for not having premium almost to the point where the app isn’t usable. No cams no reports no nothing. All behind the pay wall of premium.
Local cam are great 5/5
Love the local cams. Know before you go. Always Dreamt of this when I was younger.
Great app super helpful when I go to the beach.
Lots of great information and frequently useful. Too many times I’ve gone to the beach and had to move our stuff a thousand times because the tide was going in or out. Not anymore. Now we know just where to set up.
Only thing I would change is the price. I’d like to go premium but not for how much it’s asking.
Check it every day 5/5
Love this app! I use it everyday and the premium plan is worth every penny. I look for shape more then size so the Love camera feeds are fantastic!
You feel like you are there! 5/5
I love that I can watch the ocean even when I am away from my beach property.
All about the money 1/5
While frequently inaccurate, it use to be the best surf report out there. Now it’s all about the money. You can only see the forecast for two days, and now even the charts you can only see out to two days. It’s a shame that they’ve changed their model to be all about premium. So long Surfline.
i absolutely love this app. i am a big surfer and i don’t like spending tome going to the beach then finding out that i can’t surf. surfline lets me know ahead of time and is truly a life saving app!
Good app. Could be improved 4/5
It would be nice if you could search within your favorite spots and go to the cam/forecast. Instead it finds the spot and when you click on it, it deletes the spot from your favorites. It’s sometimes hard scrolling through to find the spot I’m looking for. Also buoys are not linked to the correct locations in Hawaii. And I can only find buoys in forecast tools on website, not on app. On app there are only a few buoys listed for all Hawaiian surf spots.
Taking away features for non-premium members 2/5
I loved Surfline (even though it’s geared for surfing more than shore break skimboarding), but in the last month Surfline app has taken away soooo many features from non-premium members. This isn’t going to make me buy premium as much as it’s just going to make me upset that you keep taking away. First they took away a day from the forecast (you can only see today and tomorrow), now you can’t see the summary for the day either unless you’re premium. I think it’s a cheap way to try to get premium members.
Awesome app 5/5
Let’s me know where the waves are!
Great app but video player has never worked 4/5
This is a great app, I love that I can scope out specific spots and get pretty accurate calls before I go out. Stoked on the fact that I can even watch videos posted onto Surfline. The other problem I have is that the video player never plays the audio. I have to go to Vimeo through the app to eat any sound and sometimes even that bugs out. Can you all fix it?
Appreciate everyone at Surfline for the help! Shoots!
B4 I’m in the water @ 6am every morning. This app is working hard to get me updated info.
Feel like I finally have an edge as a premium member 5/5
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.
Best tide table 5/5
So I'm not much of a surfer. I get out there occasionally. What I do do is run on the beach... A lot. I love this app for checking tide tables and getting a line on the wind so I can plot out my course and direction. Thanks Surfline!
The best surf app 5/5
No other app compares. When I need surf updates, Surfline tracks it perfectly.
Great app! 4/5
I love this app but I don’t understand why the app only gives regional forecasts for Doheny when the website gives location specific forecasts.
Easy, Accurate 5/5
Trashy app 1/5
Surfline thought it was a great idea to remove the cam and a extra day of forecast.
even use um for fishing
My goto for surfing really helps me see if it’s a good day to go or not
Awesome app 5/5
Love it if you wanna know how big the waves are and what’s the weather is like get this. But if you pay like 10 dollars a month you get a live view of almost any beach. Really recommend
Awesome app! 5/5
By surfer girl jackie
I love this app it makes finding good surf so much easier. For years I had trouble reading surf reports with all these lines and arrow and I couldn’t figure anything out. This gives a narration and actually explains there forecast so you don’t waste time going to the beach and finding unrideable conditions.
Used to be Great 1/5
Absolute garbage now unless you want to go premium. Without premium, you can only watch selected cams with very very little forecast. Used to love the app, now hate it. Will be switching to MagicSeaWeed
Love it, but one thing... 4/5
I love this app, I actually use it all the time to watch surf all over. I just wish they would advertise the swell map for the atlantic ocean like they do for indian and pacific. Other than that I get all my info from this app and it usually* undersells height of waves, which is better than overselling and nobody can exactly predict so no blame on it.
Great but no Balboa Pier, Newport Beach, California 4/5
By Turtle Timmy
You need to add Balboa Pier, Newport Beach, California please.
Love Surfline 5/5
I check Surfline daily whether I’m going out or not. It’s useful for webcams, swells, tides and it’s entertaining!
