Great app. Hard to believe Garmin hasn't jumped on this and bought it. Totally recommend

**** VIVOACTIVE users beware********
I have been using an older version of this app for the past 10 months to track my surf sessions here in Costa Rica. I liked the old versuon, however it was not always accurate even after adjusting the settings. I updated to this current version approx 1 week ago. The 2nd time I used the app, it locked up my watch completely. After a little research, the one way to get it to turn off was to hold the power button down for 10 seconds which is also a "hard reset" pushing the watch back to factory settings. When I try to turn the watch back on, it will not connect with my phone anymore and continues to lock up time after time after you walk through the set up via the watch itself. Not sure if it is the app, but what else could it be since watch has worked fine the entire time I have owned it. If anyone has some suggestions , please shoot them my way. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

If you surf, this is the data field you are looking for. Really accurate. It works exactly as it is described.
Have it in my Garmin 235 and works perfect.

I use it for Sup Surfing and Downwinders, it is just awsome, very well thought of, right to the point and with the settings it has many different uses.
Too bad i can't download all the information (Fenix 3HR), and that is a GARMIN issue that they don't seem to care to fix, we should all complain TO GARMIN and maybe they fix it.

Another new user question. Where do I change the threshold settings? Surfed today and counted too many waves and would like to play around with threshold settings to get Surf Tracker counting a little more accurately. Thanks

Please, fix the Fenix 3 version!

If you are talking about the uploading to Garmin Connect... that is a Garmin issue as mentioned on the app main page. I have no control over it.

great app (have only used once so far)
- vivoactive HR
- i did experience the screen "going bonkers" effect but data recorded fine and
was able to correlate with gopro video
- you have access to raw recorded gps data to create discrete surf tracks. additional details http://snardfarkle.blogspot.com/2017/02/surf-tracker-garmin-vivoactive-hr.htm

Please help me about some adjust in app.
This os amaizing app but some times the default settings counted about twice as many waves
What isthe best adjusted for surf the Waves count settings?

First try changing the Min Speed Threshold to 11 kph. If that doesn't work then try the settings suggested below by BradCracc 13/10/14/5. The settings really depend on the device and the activity you use - some activities smooth the speed more than others. The default settings work on the 920XT under the Other (Paddle) activity and this is the only device I have for testing. Thanks.

Hi guys. I just got a Fenix 3HR and downloaded this app. Sorry for my beginner ignorance but how do I get it downloaded onto my fenix 3,& under what sub category will I find , will it send the surf app too on my Fenix3 ....thanks for the help...

It's a data field, so you add it to an activity like Paddle or SUP. I don't have a F3 so I can't give you the steps, but google "fenix 3 1 layout data field": https://www.facebook.com/GarminFenix3/posts/441344592657118

Used yesterday for first time. Brilliant! Caught a wave for 126m/38 seconds. Can't work out why I can't see the stats tho in the Garmin connect app? (I set it up as a single field under a new activity). Any advice please?

See the link here: https://forums.garmin.com/showthread.php?362690-Fit-Contributor-datafield-not-working-on-Fenix3
It is a known Garmin bug that will hopefully be fixed, there is nothing you or I can do :(

Took it out for the first time surfing today.
I set it up using the SUP activity, and followed instructions here and in the forums to install correctly. Worked great with my vivoactive HR.
The default settings counted about twice as many waves, so reviewed my data post surf and adjusted the wave count settings (using the phone app) to
min speed 13 kph
min time 10 sec
min max speed 14 kph
min distance 5m.
I think this should be more accurate for me, but it may need one more rev of tuning to get it nailed. Still, this is a fantastic tool and I'm super grateful and happy with it!

Awesome Effort - I hope Garmin recognizes the efforts by its community.
13 January 2017 | Version 1.53
Very good !!
12 January 2017 | Version 1.53
Great app and thanks for the efforts. Checking please if anyone has downloaded and installed but still can;t see App on the Garmin device? In my case Vivoactive HR.

It's a data field so you would add it to an existing activity, like Paddle or Cycling for example. Set up a one field layout data field in an activity and add the ConnectIQ field - Surf Tracker.

Awesome app, very accurate data collection during SUP Surfing
09 January 2017 | Version 1.53
This data field on the cycling app works a treat! I track all surfing with it and love it. Only thing that can make it better is tracking individual waves on the map like the rip curl watch. Still, this is awesome!!

Very nice. catches almost all waves taken during a session.

I use this App for SUP surfing, it is just awesome

Can't visualize app in forerunner 735xt (sync done), in garmin express there's the app, but not in the device.
26 December 2016, bwd1
:( why not ask this question in the forum before giving a bad review?? You realize this is a data field and not an app. Add it to an existing activity as a 1 field data field.

Love this app. Use it for SUP. So much data.
17 December 2016 | Version 1.60
Fist time in water with this app and.. its magic.
Well done m8 you are a genius
16 December 2016 | Version 1.60
Great addition to my 920XT.Took it to the Mentawais in August and the GPS zooms you right in to where you surfed at remote spots like Rifles and Hideaways.With a little bit of editing of the log in notes I have lasting memories of fantastic surf sessions recorded.
15 December 2016 | Version 1.60
Love it! Keep it up. Experiencing some strange crashes while surfing. Datafield removes it self from app, only timer left. Need to readd datafield to make it work again. App created from standard paddleboard app...

Why not post this in the forum and we can try and see what's wrong. Giving a poor review gives me no motivation to work on it. Good job, I will remove the compatibility for the VA...
