Ratings and Reviews
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).
So easy to use!
The surfline app on my Apple watch worked great! I went to look at my clips and it was pulling the waikiki to ala wai cam. I figured out pretty quickly how to change spots and it reloaded my clips from bowls. The interface is great how you can watch it in landscape view and pick the next clip. And I like how it keeps the scroll zoom you are using. I also like how you can star favorite waves and sort them after. The app was also so easy to use, just press start and end. If the cams were higher resolution that would be amazing. It get's pretty grainy when you zoom in. Overall, I'm really stoked on the product and I plan to keep using it. It saves me so much time looking for clips and trying to remember what time I caught a wave. This is a breakthrough in technology for me.
Breaking up with Surfline
We had a pretty good run, you and I, my old darling Surfline, you even helped me score an epic post typhoon swell in Philippines once ! :) Our relationship had been strong, clean, and long period in the past but fell flat in recent years. Sloppy and textured conditions started to come between us. And lack of stories about underground rippers or anything really original, made you feel frigid, distant, and commercialized. Instead you continued to run stories about the same old names and became more and more short board centric. Other rips that started to drift us apart was your devotion to an over abundance of cams dotting all the good coast lines. Instead of getting out there and surfing a swell, I often just stared at my phone screen indecisive, about where the best waves were, watching cams until the conditions blew out. Instead of drawing me nearer to good surf you actually kept me away. But the final draining of our love was that your handlers wanted to charge me just to see you a few times a week or catch a peek at a simple chart. I look forward to time spent in the water to soothe any lingering pangs I have about our fall out. I’d rather get worked than hang out with you anymore.
