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.
This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.
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.
It is back
Just to update from all of the negative reviews. It seems they’ve fixed their issues with the data and the app gives accurate forecasts again. Glad to see since Corporate greed has ruined Surfline, and that same corporate greed has driven Surfline to buy out and kill off magic seaweed. SwellInfo always have more accurate forecasts to my local spot than either of the than Surfline and MSW, so glad to have this option back in action. (It’s been fixed for a year or so.)
Doesn’t work anymore
Such a bummer! I used this app for years and really appreciated it. Looks like I am not alone in experiencing that it won’t update anymore. Mine’s been stuck on the same forecast for a couple months. I keep trying to delete and re-load it. Still stuck. I really hope they keep this app going. It was nice.
I’ll give it 5 stars for the app it used to be
