Surf Watch gives you immediate, timely, and accurate surf forecast data, effortlessly through both your iPhone and Apple Watch.

Surf Watch provides you with powerful and beautiful complications so that you are always aware of the surf conditions at a glance.

Surf Watch tracks your surf sessions and provides you with a full session replay, integration with Apple’s Health Kit, health statistics, wave analysis, board selection, condition analysis, and sharing.

“Once you start using Surf Watch for your sessions, you will feel not want to surf without it. Surf Watch will always have a strong focus on providing surf forecasts to you in the most useful and elegant ways and has continued to do this with the most recent release of the pro-series complications, which take full advantage of the latest OS features. However, Surf Watch now offers an intensely comprehensive surf-session tracking update, with a best-in-class tracking algorithm, that allows you to replay your ENTIRE session. Better yet, you can now share this with all of your friends with ease.” - Surf Watch Team.

We appreciate all of the feedback and support and we really hope you enjoy using Surf Watch as much as we have!

Please note that GPS related activity, can have an impact on your battery life, so be sure to keep your devices charged and ready for each surf. Run your Apple Watch under cold water after each surf, and turn the crown to remove sand particles and a potential build-up of salt.

Please update!

I’m gonna echo the last review. This being the only surf app that provides complications on the Apple Watch it’s unfortunate this app doesn’t get much love from its developers. I just wish they would fix some of the little bugs. I actually paid for the Surface Pro upgrade just so I could store more than 2 surf spots. But for some reason no matter what spot I choose it always changes back to the first spot. (Also can you delete a spot?) (Is it trying to change to whatever spot is close by? Even though I chose location setting: when in use not always?)Then even if you choose imperial feet and miles you still see the tide in meters. If the developers can make these little fixes this app would be five stars.

This is the surf tracking app you want, NOT Dawn Patrol

I’ve used a different surf tracking app since June 2019. It was fun to see the data it collected, but the novelty wore off once the tracking went south. For the past several months dawn patrol has been tracking 25% of my waves at best, sometimes a 2 hour session would show no waves. Adjusting the settings did absolutely nothing. I thought of trying out the paid version, but thought better of it. If the free version stinks and you only get reliable tracking with the paid version, I don’t want to give my money to those sharks

Out of frustration I searched for an alternative a few weeks ago and came across Surf Watch. I downloaded it and gave it a shot without any expectations. First, the interface is so much more intuitive on the iPhone, and it has the surf forecast and tides in the free version, unlike dawn patrol. Second, it tracks about 95% of my waves accurately. Finally, the data you get is insane compared to dawn patrol.

I’m going to give it another few weeks to see if this app consistently tracks my waves. If it does, I’m going to see what the pro version has to offer. As for now, I couldn’t be happier with Surf Watch.

Love this app!

Been wanting an app like this for a long time! It’s not to say that improvements don’t need to be made, but any issues I’ve had were solved quickly and with great customer service. I hope they continue to fix little bugs and work to make the information as accurate as possible. There’s been a few times where the tides and winds have been way off which matters in the areas I surf and affected my plan. I wish the graphics were a little easier to read, I’m not always 100% sure what I’m looking at or if I’m lining things up at the right time. I would also love a surf rating to be added. It can be really helpful when learning a new spot to see a “fair”, “poor” or “good”. The watch integration has worked really well and I love that it counts my paddles! The customer service is what sold me and the lifetime price was a great deal!
