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 todays 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.
Pros and cons of Swell Info app for iPhone and iPad
Swell Info app good for
I love Swell! It has a nice little color coded chart to let you know if the conditions are bad, fair or great for each day of the week. Beyond that, you can click on a day to see all the tide/swell details you need to know. Nobody can predict surf perfectly buut this app updates itself a lot and is as accurate, if not more so, that most other apps. Im in northern Cal and most locations/areas are listed. I just hope they make it for iPad now!!!
Wonderful! If you are a surfer you should have this. It is addicting!!!!!!!!!!! I am constantly checking it no matter where I am! Nearly crying if the surf goes Down. I can wake up check temp and tides. It is easy to read and great!! Buy it!!!
Very accurate. Buoys for your local spots! Buy it, you wont regret it! It tells you what the swell is doing a week in advance!
This app is great because not only does it give the surf forecast but also goes into great detail about wind conditions. Very important if you do surf fishing like me.
Great app, gives wind, wave height and very accurate conditions. Has more than the necessary amount of locations. Highly recommended
Very good. However... Needs more surf spots. Hard to break an entire region up into one report. Also, need daily data to be available longer to west coast users. Should be available until early evening. Definitely worth $2.99, more accurate than other reports (especially Surfline.)
Some bad moments
How about some Canadian surf spots? Are you scared of cold water and kelp?
This app is complete garbage and if I could get my money back I would. They never update the app and the forecasts also do not update from within the app. Every time I try to pull up a forecast for my local break it says update failed. Complete waste of money, do not buy. Youve been warned.
This app regularly fails to update the current conditions. Fix your issues, people paid money for this!
Spent $3 on this with barely any info and a limited amount of 5 spots at a time. Go over to Magic Seaweed which is free and has much more info.
The app is crashing and its not working and you know it. I paid money for this app and I want it to work!
Poor selection of new England surf spots. This app is not like the web site.
and other. So, download free Swell Info .ipa to run this nice iOS application on iPhone and iPad.
