Surfline lies 1/5
Surfline is the worst surf check app you could ever have if you live in California every time it says 0-1 ft at my local spot (hammonds) it’s always 3-4 ft with sometimes 5 foot sets. It’s not only my local it’s every where else!
Great App 5/5
By Summer Surf
We live in South Florida were waves can be spotty at best and at time travel five hours to Jacksonville, Florida or three hours to Cocoa Beach ,Florida. Having the Surfline App helps determine if the windshield time is worth it for the surf. Surfline has let us down and our windshield time to SURF TIME is worth it.

This app help me know where I should go and the swells everywhere around the world. It’s super sick
This app is tasty 5/5
Tasty waves and chill ripppsss
SURFLINE IS FIRST RATE 5/5
All versions are excellent. Become a Premium Member and pay for exceptional forecasting, infrastructure and content.
Good for beach lovers 5/5
I’m not a surfer but often head to the beach. Surfline keeps me up to date on conditions and lets me see how accurate (or not) the general weather forecast is.
Never works, never accurate 2/5
All the Florida cams never work, they get stuck on the app. The reports are almost always never accurate, fix your app guys.
Great app! 5/5
Pay or no cams 1/5
By kelly slates
They are basically forcing you to pay to view cams, my local live cam is now the bs “premium only” cam, like come on the ads were annoying enough now you are basically forcing us to pay premium. I refuse to pay it because I’d rather spend my money on gas to go check it . F u surfine btw you made all the good spots way over crowded 🖕🏼
Live cameras are never working 2/5
Fix you’re live cameras every time I click it I watch the ad and then it says stream unavailable so annoying
Love this app! 5/5
By Eden Cruz
This app lets you know how the surf is and the temp of the water which is great. It also tells you more like the tide and weather
Cams are bad quality if they work. 1/5
The app does not reflect local forecasts and local spot reports. It reports regional forecasts and reports. If you go to the website it gives up to date local reports. Why not the app?...
I’ve been paying for premium for two years now and won’t ever again. Honestly, I’d like my money back. My local cam has been down now for 2 months and dirty for half a year.
I thought when I paid for premium it would remove ads everywhere. The ONLY place it removed them is while steaming. Be ready to get a screen full of ads on the website and nearly every “article” turns into some garbage campaign.

Great app....as they say..."Know before you go"
Love Surfline 5/5
So far away from southern Cali beaches, can keep an eye on the old surfing holes to find the best time to visit🏄🏻♂️
Buggy Forecast Scrolling 2/5
I love this app but I’m frustrated with he current issues in forecast section of the app. When scrolling through the upcoming forecasts, the app automatically scrolls back to the beginning of the forecast section. I can select a date 2-15 days out but within seconds, the forecast section goes back to today’s date making it impossible to look at future surf data. This has made it extremely difficult to look at the forecast that users pay for. Fix this bug and I’ll update my review.
Aside from that I love this app. Keep up the good work Surfline 🤙🏻
This app gets me out on the coldest New England days.
Good but too much ads for free version 4/5
Good but too much ads for free version
Best surf app 5/5
W/ the network of hd cams and the tools they have, there’s no better surf forecasting app
Worst surf report 1/5
Don’t even waist your money on this app the worst surf report ever, every time they say poor go catch waves cuz it will be good they don’t even know when is good or not a bunch of lazy people
Used to be good 1/5
Surfline is a great tool! It used to be good for users that didn't pay for the service. It gave them enough information so that they could know a reasonable forecast and see what they wanted to see as far as cams go. But lets face it, Surfline has now made their service impossible to use for users who don't pay for their premium service. To the team at Surfline, do yourself a favor and just get rid of free use all together. It hurts you, the company, and us, the users, to get bombarded with ads, have none of the decent cams in our area work, and a one day in advance forecast that forces the user to upgrade the premium. You will have a much happier customer base if you are just honest and make your service an exclusively paid one. I wish you the best in your development!
Gave a 2 star so it wouldBe seen 2/5
Would have gave it a 1 star but wanted it to be seen, used to be my fav surf app and it was cool w so many different cameras for my local surf area (NSB, Daytona) Then over time they took down 2/5 cameras and no longer had live video for them. But it was cool since their was 3 more. Now all 3 are “PREMIUM ONLY” and the other 2 don’t have cameras so it’s upsetting.. slowly 1 by 1 they started to make them all premium. Time to find a new app
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. No prem for days. Even after it starts working, intermittently the app reverts back to non-premium member over and over ... most amazing app with the cams and all but one of the worst apps overall
Best surf app 5/5
Good but needs Watch app 3/5
Best app out there, they just keep taking away features for freebies. Must pay to play.
Know when to go 5/5
I think Surfline is the best surf forecasting app out there. Well worth the subscription for unlimited cam viewing and extended forecasts. Besides putting toes in the sand, Surfline is the best way to check the surf.
Great app - I use this daily 5/5
I was having a problem with audio playing over the surf cams, but support reaches out to me and fixed the problem.
Great app and support
It’s better now... 4/5
They have responded to my requests to fix some issues. I give it an official thumbs up. Thanks for listen guys!
Bad app if you have an older phone 2/5
I'm not rating forecasting ability. I feel they try and if you are relying solely on that, you're behind.
This rating is for surfline trying to reinvent the wheel to tons of Barney enthusiasts out there. Latest app update nuked the functionality for anyone who would prefer not to update their iphone to latest OS and have it nuked by ever money hungry Apple. What they should do is focus on having cams work and bother less with other.
Plenty of free cams these days and a forecasting app that requires no subscription and updates buoy.
Forecast is someone looking at cam, so that's that worth.
Terrible changes to Surfline app 1/5
Surfline used to by my go to app on a daily basis For surf reports and over all weather. This year some major changes were put into place. I’m my opinion these are not normal user "changes” or upgrades. The app simply monetized features that previously required you to view an add to gain access to. I can say as someone who lives in a thriving surf community these "changes" are causing people to flock to MagicSeaWeed.
All in one 5/5
Cams, water temp, swell, tides, winds a surf must
By A Jerraph
Surfline tells you everything you need to know about the waves and sea. It lets you know when swells come and go, and even has very small beaches! Almost 100% accurate, but sometimes waves can be off by a hair. I use Surfline every day.
Awesome site! 5/5
I am not even a surfer but I love the surf and am a weather freak. This site gives me the “fix” I need. 👍🏻
Forecast for next day is always different from website 1/5
Forecast for next day is literally always something different on my app vs what their website says. Better off just checking their website
The go-to forecasting app! 5/5
By B Auriemma
If you’re a surfer or even just live near an ocean this is the app! On point reports and current condition details. Sometimes off a little in wave heights but assuming their meteorologists are going off buoy readings and surf cams that is to be expected. Surfline Premium is definitely worth it! Long range forecasts and swell charts/models are awesome to have access to.
Boo on you to start charging. I remember one surfline was cool and you could just look online and see your neighborhood. I’m no surfer, but I like to use it and live near beach. Won’t use it anymore
Red tide 5/5
We were going to the beach next week then red tide came in didn’t know how to find out if it went away so I got this app and it helped so much keeping an update with the red tide
Better than surfing 5/5
By Cpt James J Everglade
Save gas and time more water
Surf horoscope 1/5
Surfline surf report is like a horoscope. It hardly ever makes sense and if it does then it’s a coincidence. I’m talking about a forecast of 4-5 occ. 6 and the water is completely flat when you get there. This shouldn’t be happening. I signed up for premium to at least have the camera access. Nope, cameras are down just like when you don’t have premium.
Do yourself a favor and don’t bother with Surfline at all.
ZERO star Surfline is about money surfing is for free and for fun #selloutsurfline 1/5
By Soul Surf Recovery
They are for profit #selloutsurfline. Do nothing for free and for fun for the soul surfer. Now even a broke teacher in Hurricane ravished NC can’t get a free month! The ocean is my church #selloutsurfline is capitalistic and constantly making me feel less then with emails and reminders to pay for what the ocean, boey, reports and weather aps give for free. Magic seaweed, buoys around the country are free but NOT at Surfline. As a soul surfer I am not for this money grabbing take my money company.#selloutsurfline.
The helpfulness of Surfline 5/5
By Riggin Burns
Surfline is great it helps me get wave updates from all around the world. I for 1 live on the beach so I love to wake up Early and go surf and bodyboard so if you are considered buying this app I think it will be a good choice for you and your friends.
Surf Cams 4/5
By Don Maricon
I mainly use the app to check out the surf spots by looking at the server cams. I wish there would be more of these cameras. You always have to take the forecast with a pinch of salt. That’s where the cameras come in handy.
UI freezing a lot 1/5
The UI keeps freezing and becomes completely stuck. I have to force kill the app in order for it to work again. Super frustrating.
Forecast and current conditions 1/5
By is this thing on?? listen up
HD cam is great. The forecast and current conditions is not accurate at all. Price per month and year is too high for the product.
By Joe Lahoe
Probably the most reliable app out there for surfing I could just check the surf report and see if I want to go surfing or not. but one problem is I live in La county and you have to have Surfline premium to look at those live cams, If you can change that that’ll make my life the best.
Fails to open with new IOS update 2/5
Great app but as of right now, the app doesn’t open after I got the update.
Massive price increase just burnt some bridges. 1/5
Apparently surfline forgot who their base customers were. With an over 20% price increase for this year‘s renewal ($70 to $95 a year) you just kicked your customers in the nuts. Hope you notice a sharp decrease in renewals. 1 star for burning your customers.
