Please change it back 1/5
Surfline used to be a great tool and I loved it but now that they took away surf checks it’s basically useless unless you pay for premium. Now I can only see the footage of the waves and I can’t see the tide,wind, etc. I hope you guys change it back to what it was. That would be great.
Surfline is very accurate and easy to use. It provides a lot of great information but is limiting if you don’t have Surfline premium which is a little pricey.
Inaccurate. Total waste of money. 1/5
By K Drop
This app is horrible. The last 7 attempts to surf using this app failed miserably. The app would predict these great conditions but it would be the total opposite once I got down to the beach. I accidentally bought the $95/year subscription and tried to return it because it skipped the 7 Day trial and automatically bought the paid version. Tried to file refund and it was REFUSED after having the app for literally 6 minutes. Trash app. Never works. All the bells and whistles that come with the paid app are a waste of money. Magic Seaweed app does the same thing, only better, for $23/ year.
Great coverage with webcams 5/5
By Syncro Surfer
Surfline is a great place to go to check out the surf. It is worth the premium fee to have add free and unlimited webcam coverage. Only minor complaint is they often over rate the long term forecast and morning assessments. I find that often Fair to Good is really Poor to Fair.
Great marine app! Easy to use 5/5
By Aiden #1.4
This is a great marine weather app. Usually I want to know the water temperatures and the wave feet. This is easy to use and accurate
such a good platform i use it every day
Un-break your doppler chart time stamp 2/5
By River Randle
The time stamp on your moving swell map in the top right corner used to be in normal time i.e 12:00. Now it is in a code. Ive asked for over a year for it to be fixed only to be told that the team is working on it. As a company you are ignoring user feedback, and this being such a simple request i dont understand why.
Great app that improves with the times 5/5
Have been enjoying the updates they’ve made over the past few years - it seems they’re definitely listening to users abt what they’d like.
Enjoying the app 5/5
Accurate forecasts and the ability to search maps when I’m somewhere new. Very handy
Makes my life better 5/5
wouldn’t surf with out it 5/5
By Olomana mama
Surfline is the best no doubt. I find it worth the price to pay for a years subscription. And the new sessions app is fun. I like it and enjoy the technology that is being discovered. daily to make my surfing experience complete. Mahalo Surfline team. See you in the lineup this winter season.
Amazing surf report 5/5
They keep adding more and more great features! This report isn’t always 100% accurate but it’s definitely the best thing out. It is extremely helpful when planning my surf trips!
Best of the Best But Could Be Better 4/5
It’s the best surf app out there no doubt. I feel like some features are a bit clunky but Surfline does their best to make improvements where needed, just takes some time. Definitely worth getting the paid version if you surf often.
So Beautiful 5/5
So beautiful if you surf in any way you need this app, it’s worth the price of two cups of coffee a month...
Almost perfect 4/5
Me and my family surf and like to check the waves but this app will only let you watch the waves for 30 seconds then goes to an add
Melloman review 5/5
By Metro Surfer
Been a premium member forever and Surfline has been my go to web/app to find the best analysis & tools to find the “Spot”. The app is perfect for reading the microclimate conditions that surround southern Cali and plus the feed for when I’m feeling like reading or watching a video story about some of the unique experiences being by this tribe of water warriors! Keep it fresh and they will download! Cheers 🤙
Kaisers surf cam 5/5
Why can’t you give us a camera set up for Kaisers as a part of Oahu’s South Shore camera feed. We need it badly.
Pretty good app so far. Just stared to surf and don't understand everything on it but it tells me how big the waves are and if they are nice or not
Terrible app for premium service 2/5
The Surfline app is underwhelming considering I pay for a premium subscription. The app has constant crashes and glitches. It logs me out of premium more often than not. The interface is bulky and low tech. What really grinds my gears is I go to check the cams this morning there are now game ads in the app(not cam ads)!!
I do love unlimited cam access, forecasting, charts and data. I’ll continue my subscription when it comes time to renew but for the love of god please improve the app!
New update small request 4/5
The one thing I do not enjoy about the new update is the feed from the camera does nit change to wide screen when turning phone or iPad horizontally. Might user error on my part but it appears you have to push an arrow button now.
Latest update broke cameras 1/5
By I LUV
Latest version is broken. The new view angles button for a multi camera beach like Zuma is bugged. If you choose a camera that won’t load, the new button to choose another cam angle won’t appear inside the viewing box. Removing that surf spot, closing the app, nothing works. That surf spot is essential now broken. That is a major bug! Updates shouldn’t take away from the user experience, they should enhance it!
Live feeds NEVER load 2/5
They used work great but the last 6 months ish the cameras stopped loading. It’s not my connection or phone, everything else works smoothly. Would not recommend premium if it doesn’t get better
New version is great 4/5
New version is great
By AB yrd
Thrilled to have 3 cams within a few miles. Love getting a glimpse before leaving the house and when I can’t be there in person the views keep me sane!
Yearly Subscription 4/5
Surfline is great for when we go to the Ocean. Unfortunately, I won’t purchase a Subscription because the Lake Forecasts are terrible. I can do a better job myself. The Articles are good.
So easy to use! 5/5
By Double Gnak
The surfline app on my Apple watch worked great! I went to look at my clips and it was pulling the waikiki to ala wai cam. I figured out pretty quickly how to change spots and it reloaded my clips from bowls. The interface is great how you can watch it in landscape view and pick the next clip. And I like how it keeps the scroll zoom you are using. I also like how you can star favorite waves and sort them after. The app was also so easy to use, just press start and end. If the cams were higher resolution that would be amazing. It get's pretty grainy when you zoom in. Overall, I'm really stoked on the product and I plan to keep using it. It saves me so much time looking for clips and trying to remember what time I caught a wave. This is a breakthrough in technology for me.
Still loving Surfline 5/5
I have been using Surfline for almost 20 years now and the app for around 9 years and they are by far the best. Thank you Surfline. You guys have me amazing surf opportunities and sessions.
Delete Surfline 1/5
By Drew Straz
Surfline has gradually become a thing that I would rather not have at all. The benefit of a report and cams is nonexistent to me. I would rather go back to having nothing at all. Surfline hypes swells for weekends and holidays and the colors for the conditions equal to larger crowds. I swore not to look at the cams ten years ago because I would find an excuse not to surf. When I do check the report, I check the buoys and tides but mostly I just go when I can. This tool has become a nuisance and is slowly killing surfing. My vote would be to delete surf reports entirely.
love it 5/5
By shaka surfer
sirfline is the best app for tides and wave cams! love this app
Surf the waves you “SEA”... 5/5
By papa guido
Surfline has always been the best combination of man and technology! since it’s days of the dial up service, Sean Collins vision and enthusiasm has inspired the staff and organization to excel at the craft of surf forecasting and the ever progressing website is a testament to that.
So what’ll it be coffee or Surfline?
Cause I live in Hawaii Surfline tells me when there will be big swells come in to surf it is so helpful
Always there when I can’t 5/5
Time is of the essence and being a dad, husband, provider doesn’t allow me the opportunity to surf as frequently as I want but with Surfline I’m always in the know. Not just current local conditions but anywhere in the world. Central Coast to Central America I can check conditions! Plus I’m always sharing articles to FB!
Great app 5/5
By tg laxgurl
this app is so great but a little confusing
Clean, informative, accurate 5/5
Easy for a novice like me. Wish surfing was as easy!
Best surf App 5/5
Whether you are a premier user or a lite user it is a killer app. Between the tips and clear cut cams, great Job Surfline team!! Keep up the great work!'
Surf line is easiest to use 5/5
By Kiwi Swandog
Still the best surf app on the market.
Great jus minor things 4/5
I wish that without premium I could at least see more than the next day 😒
Nixon mission 4/5
I wish the app would be compatible with this watch or the trace app
Literally the worst 1/5
They don’t seem to care about the quality of their video stream anymore. It never works. I’ve reported the issues, they deny any issues. The stream is glitchy across multiple platforms and devices. Will not be Paying for this any more.
Very expensive 2/5
By Mojo Workin
Think about how many mins a month you actually use the app compared the hundreds of hrs you watch YouTube, Netflix, amazon prime, hulu, ...
Compare how many and how long you have to watch ads on YouTube. Surfline’s ad model makes the video useless. Really you force me to watch a 30 sec ever 30 sec?
I tried the iwatch session tracking. It works better in the promotional videos. I went to a place with a surf cam. it did not sync to the video. It did not create a graph showing my where I caught waves and the path I rode
There are lots of other surf forecast sites. The data comes form the u.s government, that is to say NOAA. You can just go to their website.
The only reason I am interested in Surfline is they host a web cam at a spot I surf at. Oh by the way the local government pays for the cam!
By little d in ur v
Best app 5/5
Super detailed, great quality
Be efficient with your time 5/5
I like to see the different swells and peaks so I can get the most out of sessions. Surfline is good for predicting trends, I will know if the swell is filling in or dying, so I can pick the eyes out it !
Spot on! No pun intended. 5/5
By displaced water
The app works great and the forecast is as accurate as it gets. Would be cool to be able to access the rewind from the phone. And allow rewind to send your waves via email without needing an apple phone. Good job Surfline!
5 stars 5/5
it’s simple and easy! just the app I was looking for.
Good app, too expensive 3/5
It's a great app but the cost is really high for anyone that isn't super serious and consistent about surfing.
Ocean Health 4/5
I use Surfline to read articles and keep up to date on anything about our oceans. Very creative, concerned, and interesting writers bring up topics you care about if you get stoked about the ocean. I live 80 miles from the coast .
