Great concept but needs more accuracy. Counts waves I have not caught, distance not very accurate. Would love to see speed on wave. I had a similar app on my Fenix 3hr which was a lot more accurate.

Good for a free app. Good simple interface, easy to navigate. But counted 7 waves before i was past the breakers with 9km/hr speed and 5s ride. Not sure whats going on there.

Great app! Love that in a glance I can see waves caught, distance and time surfed. Also no hidden fees or anything like that. Mahalo!

Nice App for surfing!! Would be nice adding more fields like speed of the wave, water temperature .... Good work!

Hi just used this app a few times so far and getting used to it and it's functions. But so far it's been great. Good fun to count the waves and distance. Time of day and session time easily seen. All good from me. Well done. Thank you

Very poor performance. Counts wave rides when I am only paddling. Just moving from shore to the surf break marked like 8 waves.

Seems to work great for everyone else. My guess is you didn't read any of the instructions. The app is made in my own time and given away for free, if you'd read the instructions, or even emailed me and I could have helped you set it up correctly, but instead you decide to leave a 1 star review, thanks for that.

Just getting to grips with the app well down and appreciate it. Would be a lot better if it measured each ride and how long that ride was, not the total distance to ride until your next wave. Cheers

This is a great addition to my Fenix 5. Almost the same as my old ripcurl search watch but in a much better watch. As per previous reviews, would be good if the wave and paddling data were separated

Works perfectly on 6X, Aled modified the app so it works with the 6x's resolution, all data fields easy to use and clear. Data fields import into garmin connect well to give you overall summary.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
