Love the app, worth every penny

I’ve used magic seaweed for years, all around the world and love it. It’s my go to for checking my local surf breaks and it’s an brilliant tool. I use it for kayaking as well where wind and tides play the biggest part. I see a few people grumble about having to pay. Arh boo hoo. I’ll crack out my worlds smallest violin for you’s.
It’s unfair to grumble as for years MS has been free. The time and money to set the site up and run it Magic Seaweed derserve to turn revenue. Plus the costs only work out as the equivalent of a bar and half of wax a month in costs, which is nothing compared to what we get. With the ease of use, the long range forecast and the cameras it’s my number one app on the phone. Plus it saves me a fortune in fuel as don’t need to nip and check my spots. Highly recommended!

Great app

This really is a very helpful app. As someone very new to paddle boarding and kayaking this has been so useful fir the tides and wind speed etc. It even gives sunrise, sunset etc.
I would however have given 4.5 * if possible though, just because as a newbie to all of this. It would be nice if there was an explanation as to what each thing surf swell etc mean in real terms and how this effects sup users surfers etc. Also how it can be flat but with red wind speeds.... this I find very confusing. I've even tried your online and page but it seemed to just refer to surfers who actually want those conditions... more explanation would be fantastic please :)


MSW surf App

MagicSeaWeed is a great app for aspiring young groms like myself, it gives you an accurate review of the swell, wind levels, wind direction all over the globe, to add to this, it gives the forecast for the whole week, and it’s own traffic light system telling you whether it’s worth going to the beach! My problem with MSW is that, it’s not totally accurate all of the time, it’s much more efficient to pop down to the beach and check the surf, MSW sometimes estimates the wind levels too high. I understand that if you don’t live near the beach, it is easier to look at an app on your mobile phone, than to drive 3 hours to check the swell. Overall I think it’s an excellent app with some things it could change to improve it.
