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.

Don't waste your money

App does not work at all

My location is not listed

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!!!

Total rip off. $3. No camera. Use the web browser on your phone for free. I feel robbed.

Waste of money

Worst app There are only 5 spots in south FL Nothing in the keys or Bahamas Save your money!

Need map and more forecast days

Need forecast map and more forecast days ( 10 days minimum ) to be a 5 stars , very precise forecast

Never updates!

Always fails to update. Occasionally works but fails more often than not

Fix the App

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

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

This app regularly fails to update the current conditions. Fix your issues, people paid money for this!

Too many technical issues

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

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

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

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

Why does the jersey forecast always fail to load?

Needs an update

Pretty good app but hasnt been updated in awhile

Inconsistant

This app constantly gives me false information

Poor forecasting

Poor forecasting and reporting plain and simple. Try other apps.

Can be much better

- only 5 spots limit - no graph - no spot map

Don't get

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.

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

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

Please add the graph and let us scroll over it like on the website.

Love this app. & helpful!

We have been using this app for 2-3 years and always recommend!

Good interface, poor forecasting

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!

But please make it so you can have more then 5 top spots!

wont download

bought it and it doesn't let me download it on iphone 5s

It's alright :/

Has been consistent and runs easily for me but until lately the report has been off, especially the winds.

Not good...

Weak attempt at best. No local breakdown that I can find and not easy to navigate.

No chart¿!

Please put a chart in please

Very useful, but very ugly

(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

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

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

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

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

The app says the forecast was updated, but it really isn't

Wont refresh!

Before november 27 update it work just fine. It has been useless ever since.

Was good

Does not work any more update fail fix it.

Fix please!

Before the november 27 update the app worked perfectly. Now it does not refresh.

App will not update!

This app does not work after the latest update. Please fix.

What is goin on

Great app before New app update will not update surf reports!!! Refreshing says update failed every time...fix very soon please!!!

Awesome

Great app

Greatest Surf App

I wish I had bought this sooner. I always relied on surfline and MSW desktop versions for my surf forecasts but their apps sucked!! Finally after a couple of big disappoints in their forecasts I went looking for something else. Decided to try this app and am so happy!! If only surfline and MSW made premium good apps like this...

Simple

I use this app for skimboarding and surfing and it is dead on accurate . Plus it is so simple a cave man could use it!

Not bad

Not a bad application. Great color guide as well as wind info, but limited amount of locations (4 only) and seems like is limited to the American Continent...wish could add more locations and see info worlwide ( i do travel a lot!!!)

Use it daily

Overall, good interface and reliable forecasts. They did a good job of keeping the app simple and fast.

:)

great app always accurate on the forecast.

Nice App

I can't speak for West coast surf spots but this has all the spots I like (except Surf City, NC). The app is easy to understand at a glance.

Not much better than Magic seaweed.

The surf spot selections are minimal. There are no live charts for wind, buoys, and storm systems. It is small and compact. Was looking for more. Not what I expected. 2.99 to charity I guess.

Not good

I pay 2.99 for this to tell me error try later i dont recomend it

Swell info

Is great need more surf locations in Oregon 
