Global Surf Industries and Swellinfo.com have teamed up to bring you - Swell Info, the complete surf report and surf forecast tool for your iPhone.
Swell Info has full seven day detailed surf forecasts, current weather, tides, and buoy data all in a sleek, super easy to use interface. This is an app you will use for today's surf session, and planning your surfing week.
Swell Info currently offers forecasts for the entire US (including Hawaii), Mexico, Central America, and Puerto Rico. New locations will be added in time. All locations available on the app are available free on the Swellinfo.com web site. Please check the web site to see a lit of all our forecast locations.
Launching Swell Info brings you to the main forecast screen providing a summary forecast for the morning and afternoon for each of the 7 days, conveniently color coded using green (clean), blue (fair), and red (choppy). You can swipe back and forth between your 5 favorite locations, and when you want the details, you can click on each day to get the detailed text surf forecast, tides, and hourly wind and swell data. The Swell Info app, also includes current wind, weather, tides, and buoy data, updated hourly at the top of each main forecast screen. This is the crucial information that notifies you on what the surfing conditions are right now - what the tide is doing, whether the sea breeze has kicked in, or if the new swell has started to show on the nearest buoy station.
Ratings and Reviews
Bought this app maybe 8 years ago, $5.99 I think, always was good. Past few months report was not synching up with the sessions I was having: e.g. report showed 2+ and green, okay grab the longboard, but out surfing 4-5+, like wish I had my shortboard. Now just this week, here it is a Saturday and report is showing Thursday, Hunh!!! Are they just going to let the app die? I deleted and reinstalled, didn’t fix it.
App Crashes Now
Came to the review section to see if others were having the app crash when trying to log on. Been happening for the last two weeks. Other than that, really quick and accurate way to get data and compare spots. Needs a more complete update for the future for it to be worth the money.
DO NOT BUY! It is not the same version, and does not have all the features available on the web site. The web site is still available. This makes me believe that this app is not the same as the original one. Since the original one lost the domain a few days ago, this is probably somebody who bought the domain; but does not include all the features the original one did. Not recommended!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
