What’s New

Version 10.6.1

The latest Surfline update includes a handful of fixes to make your surf checks more precise and effective, including:
- Moving the surf ratings bar to below the graph
- Increasing the resolution of the tide graph scrubber so you can see how height changes between hours
- Tapping on a day to scroll you to that day’s forecast while in table view
- Listing the model run below the forecast so you know how recently the model has been updated
- Adding Wave Energy to charts to visualize combined swell height, period, and direction

We’ve also added helpers to our login screens with updated onboarding for new members.

As always, we appreciate your feedback - your comments help us to build the best surf forecast app possible.

Live Saver ! Literally

Given the criminal attitude of sewage discharge in Britain this superb app can literally save your life . We are open water swimmers , canoe and snorklers …. And have two dogs …. Visit the beaches in Scotland weekly and on holiday bum around in our Stealth Truck around Northumberland other surf bum and mush rider locations . We are self employed so getting ill from criminal sewage dumping not only leads to ill health but could loose us our business if we can’t get over it and don’t want to subject our dogs to others cretinous behaviour so they can profiteer … so please keep up the fantastic work and my MP for Berwick upon Tweed is next on my list for a chat about the unbelievable amounts of deliberate daily sewage discharges whilst the company pay dividends ….

Cams make all the difference

Recently joined Surfline after hearing MSW was to be decommissioned in may. The thing I loved about MSW was at a glance you could rule out the bad days from the good days in your favourites screen. Now I’m a member of Surfline and have been using it religiously for 2 weeks I think there’s more detail and once you know how to navigate the app it’s also more informative. Having use of the CAMS is a game changer!!! Should have coughed up the MSW annual fee years ago. Will still be sad to see MSW tho. Has done me proud for around the last 12 years. Love your work!!!!

Was good when I could log in!

When I first downloaded the app about a month ago, I had to create an account, which I did. When I go to load it today it asks me to log in and it won't allow me, just a red strip appears at the top of my screen with no text. I go to reset my password and get the same red strip, no text or error message. So I go to create an account, you guessed it, that red strip appears at the top of my screen again. Unable to log in, unable to reset my password and unable to register for an account. I'll go back to using the websites in a browser that I was using before. It's a bit long winded but I don't want to sign up (again!) using a different email address, for something that could possibly happen again. Otherwise, was an ok app for checking the current surf and for the next 2 days.
