Updates about every three days

Got this app to see the surf and weather conditions on all the beaches on the island but the app only updates every three days or so. For instance I’m writing this on the morning of April 16th and the reports are all as of 1:20 pm April 13th. How is that supposed to help me today?
Maybe there’s an in app purchase of a time machine that I missed! Otherwise the map of the island is helpful.

A must have for a safe and fun visit to Kauai

There is a lot of misinformation about beach safety on Kauai and many people have died from sheer ignorance or foolishness. This app can help address the first condition. I recommend it highly!
