It’s okay.

The app falls short of the old Swellwatch website. The information is good, so are the local breaks, etc. But the lack of an animated display showing the swell, period, etc. is really annoying. With the old Swellwatch you could easily see on a map when and where the swell was coming from. With this? Only the wind. Swellwatch had the only good animated interface, and it’s gone. The devs have said that they’re going to add more features, etc. in the future, and I hope that’s one of them. This is still my favorite forecaster, but I would really love to see the features from the website return.

Advice

You bummed out a ton of surfers by removing the original wetsand/swell watch wave animation. That forecast was so simple and accurate that we didn’t need Surfline or others. If you felt the need to create an app you could have left the original wetsand site in place or at least created the app to mirror the site - the current wind animation is pointless and your app is overly complicated.

Read the book ‘inspired’ - it’s about product design which starts with the customer. Nobody is asking you to add new features which seems to be your response to the negative feedback. They are telling you exactly what to do if you want to create an app that surfers will use. If you really cared, you would scrap what you’ve done and start over (never easy to do when you’ve already invested time, resources and have some ego attached). You would use the the original wetsand site as inspiration (based on comments everyone loved that site) get a focus group of customers/surfers and determine any areas for improvement from the original site. Then, create some design mockups - I use sketch or balsamic and work with a designer/artist. Demo the mockups to your focus group then begin app creation after you receive positive feedback. Frequently validate your apps features and usability with the focus group before publishing.

Rock on guys and hope you’re catching some waves during these times!

Hi, Surf_shrdr - Thank you very much for the comments. We completely agree and just re-launched swellmaps that are reminiscent of the old swellwatch maps based on feedback from everyones feedback. Take a look here https://forecast.surfer.com/southern-california/ and here https://forecast.surfer.com/northern-california/. The new swellmaps will be on a future release of the app as well. Please send any feedback about the maps, etc to contact@surfable.co Thank you!

Quick follow up. We also just released another app that has maps only. California & Hawaii Forecast Maps http://app.buildfire.com/api/promoProxy/fe411e70-09eb-11eb-91c9-06e43182e96c/
Take a look. Any feed you much appreciated. Thanks!
