Mandurah and Trigg

The reviews are pointless. Clearly no one actually checks the surf. The same report covers two locations more than 80km apart. Often posted at 2:30am. Not sure what you could see at that time of the day. The camera at Trigg barely moves, only showing the point which only has decent waves towards the end of summer. The camera at Mandurah is not even at a surf beach. If you’re living in Perth don’t bother subscribing.

Developer Response ,

Hey, Thanks for your review, although Im sorry to hear it's not a happy one! The surf outlook is generated by our forecast data which is done by our forecast team. This is why is generates it at 2.30am as it is doing it overnight. If the forecast team feels its not spot on, they do update it in the mornings. Cheers, Justine


A few glitches but otherwise good service

I joined the annual subscription after many years of using the Hurley/ Coast watch surf app. Got sick of the adds and now I’m happy to pay to avoid them. I’m in the first 2 months of my subscription and unfort, there have already been a few glitches ...

1/ wind history reports were not working for a week or so

2/ visibility on two surf cams (the two I usually use most), was so bad you could see absolutely nothing

3/ now the cam I regularly check is not uploading and I’ve just emailed to let them know

To be fair...the first two issues were resolved within a week and the response was prompt. Now I’m waiting to see what comes of the third issue (in my first two months of my subscription)...hmmm without sounding like too much of a grump...things could definitely be better than what I’ve come across so far..

Surf check

Ok it’s free so I can’t complain too much but you guys have become very lazy and generic with your surf report. At least look at your own cams before posting your report. The disparity between reality and report is often ridiculous. The same report is used from Bondi to Wollongong. Come on! Using the forecast as the report is not going to be accurate as well.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. We provide beach specific reports for both the Bondi cameras and the Cronulla cameras. If the reports are not filed for some reason then we default to 'Today's Outlook' which is the expected daily conditions for that region. I will pass on your concern to the reporters.
