Great data field!!! I maybe have to tweak the thresholds to have more realistic data but it's already good. If you could add time count between two waves it would be wonderful!!!

Used this on the Fenix 3 and 5 - amazing. Once you follow the setup instructions its really straight forward.
Will this be available for Garmin Instinct soon?

The Instinct doesn’t have Connect IQ support = No data fields, apps, or widgets

Just wish a resume chart produced like the data screen itself

Great app - using in on Fenix 3hr on the SUP activity.

Why dont run in my forerunner 235? I cant install.. help llegase!

Is there an issue with the Altitude? I've used this App for a year or so and it works great (when tuned to 11kph for wave threshold) but Elevation is showing @ 3200 ft when in the water.

I don't have anything to do with the Altitude...that would be Garmin. But my 935 Altitude jumps around when in and out of the water too.

Hi mate love you app but cant upgrade to the surf track 2 because it isnt in the list of compatible devices. I have a fenix 3hr. Can you please make the tracker 2 available to that device? Many thanks
05 May 2018 | Version 1.70
Great work Dave!! Thanks for the app. It track me perfect every wave. The only thing i miss is on Connect that there is no graph for the distance of the waves. Is It possible to do something to see a graph for ride distance? Thanks again for the app!!!
29 January 2018 | Version 1.70
I’ve been having trouble with mine lately with it not registering waves. Can the Tactix Bravo be added to Version 2??
20 February 2018, bwd1
Sorry for the late reply, can you use the Contact Developer link and send me a message and we can figure out what's wrong. Have you checked the App Settings in GCM or Express to make sure that waves will be detected?
09 January 2018 | Version 1.70
Great app, a bit of a gimmick since what you see ok your watch is completely gone after you save the activity. Connect iq doesn't show anything close to the same account of info as even the screen.
09 January 2018, bwd1
The "gimmick" part is on Garmin's side - they are the ones that haven't got this working. I've done as much as I can. It mostly works for the newer watches (F5, 935). I would complain to them: https://forums.garmin.com/forum/developers/connect-iq/143517-

Excellent work Dave. Just wish there was a way to mark caught waves as green in google maps, so when you look at the GPS data, you can tell which is a wave and which is paddling around. Not a fault of your app though.

I have Fenix 3hr, and tried it today while SUP surfing small waves, the app was stable,. My thresholds were to high so it did not pick up all waves. But i love the app, it was stable and will try again soon. Any chance of adding the FENIX 3HR to the Surf tracker2??
07 December 2017, bwd1
Thank you for the review, I hope you can get it working properly. The problem with the older watches is memory, as in there is not enough for me to add any more features. That is why I made version 2 for the Fenix 5 etc.
03 December 2017 | Version 1.70
Fenix 3- you need to go into Settings-apps and then Add New. Call it Surfing or whatever, then select Data Screens, then SCREEN 1. Change LAYOUT to only 1 field (unless you want to add more) then scroll down to FIELD 1 and select the SURF TRACKER you have downloaded. Then go back and make sure the other screens are off (Screen 2 to Screen 10). Then you are done.
It is then available as one of your Apps (same way you use for running etc.) by pressing the Start button and scrolling to find whatever you called it.
May be other options if you want to play around, but this is how I set it up.

First great job ! really cool app.
i have a question, when i export my data to save my activities, i can backup the sessions but not all the data... I do that by a python script on github.
I can get speed, duration but not the number of waves by example
If you have an idea ?
08 October 2017 | Version 1.70
Works surprisingly well, much better than I expected. Great job on building this!
07 September 2017 | Version 1.70
I cant find the app in my forerunner230
07 September 2017, bwd1
Before giving a 1 star review maybe you could at least try to read the instructions. It's a DATA FiELD not an app...
26 August 2017 | Version 1.70
Fenix 3 HR - this takes a bit of setting up if your a newbie like me..... u tube data fields for your watch type as it goes in data fields (the developer does state this in his comments), it is not a application,(this tricked me up for while until I figured it out) but in saying that once it is setup it is a amazing app ( i would say the best on my watch that I have to date)
10/10 for use and fun to track surf sessions..........
Play with your settings as on small days it may not record all waves if they are short rides due to the settings. I set mine up to scroll between this and heart rate data as a matter of curiosity. Amazing the heart rate difference between small days and larger days.
Great app and thanks to the developer.
Reading the other comments, the low star ratings are from the ones that did what I did originally and not set it up properly.........take the time to learn and set it up and it works amazing ........
GARMIN SHOULD BE MAKING THIS A STANDARD APPLICATION IT IS AMAZING
19 August 2017 | Version 1.70
Doesn't work with FENIX 3 HR...
20 August 2017, bwd1
Thanks for the 1 star review... Instead, perhaps send a message to the developer or post a question in the forum. It does work for the F3HR. Most problems are user error.

First test (longboard session). Works perfectly! Good waves detection, very easy to use. I can see the surf tracker statistics in Garmin Connect.
With the High Tides app, my forerunner 230 is the perfect tool for surfing.
Thank you bwd1, very good job!

Congratulations on the app. It works very well but... I can not see the data of each wave in connect IQ once saved. Can anyone help me with this problem?
06 July 2017 | Version 1.70
For a App which cleary garmin dont wish to incorporate on their platform. You are a wizard with this app. Has never failed beside me turning it off in car. A passion which you want to bring to others amd constantly updating.
4.5 stars app
5.0 stars for passion

Great job it works very well

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.
