I have had my eye on this app for a while and today i finally purchased a Garmin watch.. very excited!!! I can't seem to find much info on how to use this data field - can anyone offer any advice? How do i set the BeachDir before i push start? I can't work out where to change the direction setting on the watch itself... i can only change the direction using the mobile phone app. Thanks!

If you have "Measure BeachDir at Start of Activity" selected in the settings (in Garmin Connect/Express), then stand on the beach and point the 12 hand of the watch perpendicular to the waves, then go to the activity with the data field and you will see it averaging the direction. Once it measures and stabilizes (15 sec or so), then press Start and go surf. Otherwise uncheck the "Measure BeachDir" and use a fixed value. If you still have questions use the Contact Dev link.

Great App! used it on my Fenix 3 and now with my Fenix 5.
It would be nice if we could somehow see the water temp on the main screen (any screen?). Maybe below the Wave Count? Water Temp is one of the main reasons I use my Garmin over my Rip Curl Search (that also tracks waves, quite elegantly I must say).
Water temp is such a conversation point when in the line up. For instance today it was 76 degrees while 2 days ago it was 66.
Regardless, great app and makes your watch that much more valuable if you surf.

I am using Fenix 5S plus. I downloaded this application but I do not know how to activate this on the watch. This is not an actual application but downloaded as data field. Do you know how to activate this ?

Perhaps because you didn’t read the instructions? If you need help then use the contact developer link. It’s a data field not an app so you need to add it to an existing activity like SUP, paddling etc
