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.
Usually the south is very accurate and helpful for surfers. Lately it has been crashing hopefully the developers will solve. Surfers don’t give up use the web site on safari
App Crashes Now by jake_mundok
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.
Help another bro out! Fix it! by Pleasy Rider
Same problem as the previous review by similar title. Was one of the best wave forecast mobile apps and I have been using it for years. Not the most detailed but the most important info, fairly accurate and easy to navigate and compare spots. Now it’s broke. Please fix!
App failure by monkeybones1439
What’s up with the app
Stick to the website by still better than sirfline
Website is awesome and accurate. The app doesn’t have the same info and is bulk. Waste of money
Help a bro out by Jdhsvshsvsvsgsv737372)2728
I’ve had the app for many years. Always worked for me and helped with narrowing down the surf forecast. Over the last few days I go to open the app but it goes to open and then completely shuts down and disappears. Wouldn’t be as mad if I got it for free, but tables turn when I paid for it and sent emails but got no support or contact back.
The website is MUCH better by D0180
The app only shows super basic information and you can’t see the maps! The basic info is available in many free apps so what’s the point? Why charge $2.99 for such a basic app?
To me, what makes the Swellinfo site awesome is the swell maps — they need to be in the app!!!
Simple and great by Rock N Roller
Please update for iPhone X. Would really use the app more
Don't waste your money by Jjaz88
App does not work at all
My location is not listed by Robinpich
Wasted $3. Would have been nice to know my area wasn't included in the app before I paid money. How can I get a refund??
DON'T BUY THIS APP!!! by Chickadeeboo
Total rip off. $3. No camera. Use the web browser on your phone for free. I feel robbed.
Waste of money by Ronnhaz
There are only 5 spots in south FL
Nothing in the keys or Bahamas
Save your money!
Need map and more forecast days by Juca7
Need forecast map and more forecast days ( 10 days minimum ) to be a 5 stars , very precise forecast
Never updates! by N8D0GGG
Always fails to update. Occasionally works but fails more often than not
Fix the App by Archer 12MD
The app is crashing and it's not working and you know it. I paid money for this app and I want it to work!
Not worth the money by starter17
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.
Buggy and inconsistent by TomDunphy
This app regularly fails to update the current conditions. Fix your issues, people paid money for this!
Too many technical issues by Xreviewx111
This app would be fantastic if it didn't stink. The message "update failed" appears constantly and the reports get stuck on days old info. The only solution is to delete the app or area and reinstall. Cellular or wifi connection doesn't seem to matter. This happens on a weekly if not daily basis.
Never updated by ACSurfer14
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. You've been warned.
Never updates when refreshed by Gallery Surfboards
Not gonna complain about a free app, but I wish this app would update when refreshed. It seems to update at will and never when I need it to. Other than that the forecasts are at least as good as any other service.
Good app by ShOcKMonKeY
I have three surfing apps installed. Surfline for the cams, swell info for overall info and magic seaweed for better by the hour breakdown. I access swell more than any of the others. To get a 5 It needs more favorite save spots.
Jersey left in the dust by I have now nickname
Why does the jersey forecast always fail to load?
Needs an update by Bdnskseinfndkd01
Pretty good app but hasnt been updated in awhile
Inconsistant by Hexyhed
This app constantly gives me false information
Poor forecasting by kar824
Poor forecasting and reporting plain and simple. Try other apps.
Can be much better by EightSevenCA
- only 5 spots limit
- no graph
- no spot map
Don't get by Noseriderjames
This app is the most consistently wrong app out there. I think there must be some drunk guy just putting in just some wild surf reports and hoping he is right with his made up forecasts ( it will say 4-5' and be 1+ at best). Get it together swell info!!!!!
Not recommended. by Tk surf
Not good. One report for the state of RI. Come on! Free apps give you individual beach reports. Don't buy it. Not worth a lick.
Terrible forecasting by An enraged east coast surfer
It was calling for 1-2 overhead at frisco but heck no drive an hour for some cheesy little shin snappers. this report is normally spot on but a lot of the time it will change at the last second. GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER together then maybe I will consider re downloading this
I'll make it 5 stars if you add the graph by Funnyfeet
Please add the graph and let us scroll over it like on the website.
Love this app. & helpful! by Tinaandd
We have been using this app for 2-3 years and always recommend!
Good interface, poor forecasting by petit_beignet
I've been seeing excellent days when they call it poor and poor days when they call it good.
I appreciate the user ability, but check the surf elsewhere before checking their forecasts.
(For example, Rincon was blue today, but in reality pretty epic)
Love it! by It dosent work why
But please make it so you can have more then 5 top spots!
wont download by Lpluillo
bought it and it doesn't let me download it on iphone 5s
It's alright :/ by alex Smith
Has been consistent and runs easily for me but until lately the report has been off, especially the winds.
Not good... by mike.griffin
Weak attempt at best. No local breakdown that I can find and not easy to navigate.
No chart¿! by Mxbs12863772
Please put a chart in please
Very useful, but very ugly by Labatts
(Latest version update: You must delete all your locations and re-add them.)
The UI desperately needs a redesign. Ugly buttons that are too small for a touch device. Text that overlaps its borders, is misaligned, and lacks padding. Cheap, amateurish graphics.
But it does work. Check the website to see your areas coverage before you download the app and realize your favorite breaks are missing.
Update fix by OCannibal
I was having problems with updates, but if you delete the spots on your list and re-add them they will update.
I'm sure it'll be fixed soon by Gman09
Has been the most consistent app over the last few years for my home break. I'm sure the guys are working like crazy to get this fixed after the last update. I do wonder what kind of QA testing went into this release.
Update 12/3 - just downloaded new version. The first location on my list of surf breaks will now update, but the rest all fail to update. Tried LTE and Wifi with no luck, turned off the iPhone and no luck. Seriously, do more than 5 mins of QA when you release an update.
New update by Waverdr73
When is this thing gonna get fixed?? The last update does not allow the report to be updated!! Switching to SNN
Use it all the time by Seasalty4
Same problem here after the update. Hope for a fix quickly, when it does works its really helpful. Might not always be right on with the report but its enough to give you an idea of what's happening if you know how your local break works
Still not working by RMilligan
The app says the forecast was updated, but it really isn't
Wont refresh! by Leumel
