Finally an app that doesn’t over inflate my hope for waves

As I write this candid review during the summer doldrums of flatness, I truly appreciate an app that doesn’t try to push false hope and unrealistic expectations of wave sliding for increased ad revenue. Thank you for helping me keep my East Coast expectations low and therefore actually enjoying myself in 1-2ft and “surfable” - catch you in the splish splash

My go-to app for surf forecasting in RI

There are obviously a lot of sites and apps for surf forecasting in Rhode Island, but none of them have what this one does. Loads of data perfectly arranged in a simple user interface. It had everything I need and nothing I don't. Simple and effective. It's the first and last place I check for surf forecasting in RI.
