Version 6.0.1

In this build, we're excited to introduce Surfline Sessions. This new feature allows anyone with an Apple Watch to track their surf sessions. If tracked in front of a Surfline camera, users will get Sessions video clips of each wave ridden sent directly to their iOS app. Check out the middle tab on the app to learn more.

If you're a fan of Surfline Sessions, we'd like to give credit to a large contingent of beta testers, who've been helping us test and develop this feature for the past 3-6 months.

Surf line is something I check everyday

The true surfer mentality is to go no matter what but go where is what surfline helps. When I'm at my desk I can watch the jobless groms sherd until I get off work and run out to the southern California chop I know it's choppy cause surf line tells me so. Sunset and pch? Nope tides too high. Thanks surf line. Also I paid for the surfline premium it's worth it. So I can watch the venice cam and think nope it's still a beach break.
Woah trestles.. Too far but I know it's good because of surfline. County lines the only place getting surf. Drive an hour and a half thanks to surf line and get there for it to be just as packed as first point. Surf line is cool, but it'll say it's poor out and I'll have the best day of my surf life. So don't always trust it. Trust your gut go to Topanga during low tide. Destroy your board and quit surfing. Forever.

Also the hurricane updates and swell reports are tight. Something to get hyped about and tell your wife a week or so in advanced so she doesn't complain that you surf too much

Still The Best Surf App/Website

Yes I agree that the ads are a bore (but there aren't any though if you're a Premium member), but it's a minor nuisance to bear for access to accurate reports and a beautiful interface with the most cams available. It occasionally has crashed on me too but rarely recently. For my 80 or so bucks per year Premium subscription for extended web forecasts, having this companion App is a dream and i actually use it more than the website everyday. Well worth the cash and minor nuisances - when the App is down due to location reception issues, going directly to Surfline Mobile on the internet usually will work unless one's cell signal is close to nonexistent. I agree that controllable cameras would be ideal but with their subscribership it would probably be impossible (can you imagine playing camera tug of war with 5000 Chads and Kimos at your favorite spot). Let's stop whining - you pay more and it isn't perfect but it's pretty darn good. Disclaimer - I'm not on their payroll).

Good for non-surfers too!

I don’t surf but I’m fascinated by it (maybe someday!) and I like learning about the water and the wind and all the variables that make for good surfing. I also like to correlate that info by seeing the actual waves that are described by the data. However, 15 seconds of a picture telling me to upgrade to premium for 30 seconds of webcam viewing (where most of the webcams are already hosted by third parties and available for free elsewhere) seems excessive to me and does not exude that surfer friendly attitude one might expect. This could be a nice outreach vehicle for young and/or new surfers who want to get in the water a little more educated than they would be otherwise. The heavy handed push to premium is a drag though. Allowing uninterrupted web cam viewing (not even the HD - just regular cams) would encourage people to stay on the website longer, learn more and realize their need for premium. Just a thought - thanks!!
