The app is ok.It'll be perfect if:1)Could disable altitude measures.2)Could add some improvements such as vibration when recording a wave or other functions that the datafield surf-tracker2 has.

The last fix resolved the crash and now the app works like a champ! Thanks for your hard work.
October 13, 2019 | Version 1.0.7
I wanted to report that after the latest update the app still crashes. Think it might be related to loss of GPS during wave detection?

Hi, this is a different crash, seems the system wasn't releasing an object in memory causing the memory usage to gradually increase every second when there's a GPS signal. hopefully this is the last bug fixed now, try this version and if you find it works please update your review ratings. thanks.
October 1, 2019 | Version 1.0.4
It appears the app crashed on the first detected wave. I was using the default settings.

this should now be fixed in version 1.0.6
September 30, 2019 | Version 1.0.3
Great App, however the app crash in every wave, I hope the new version will solve that.
I think the app will improve with Water Temp., Speed in the wave and would be excellent to have the icon surf instead a man stand , when we saw the information in the phone or PC as other sports, run, bike etc.

Would it be possible to apply the open swim filtering for the watch with open swimming mode ? In my experience, with the surftracker datafield that seems to work like your apps, it is much much more accurate both in terms of wavecount as well as total distance.

Unfortunately not without changing the sport type from surfing to open water swimming which means it wouldn't get saved as a surf in your Garmin connect history. If it's something you think would make a difference i can add it as an option but you'd have to edit the activity afterwards each time to change it from a swim to a surf yourself. drop me an email if you want it added, my watch doesn't do open water swimming so i don't have any experience of it :(

Thank you for making a surf app. I love the interface, very easy to see in the water, however the app crashed for me after every wave I took. In one way it's nice since I can see all the waves individually instead of a giant scribbly line on the GPS map (and I get individual wave data) but I didn't like that I needed to restart the app and wait for GPS after every wave. I was trying to be conscious of keeping the watch out of the water as much as possible but seemed like 10 sec under water might be what would make it crash. Gonna try modifying some settings and trying again (I assume default should work just fine though). Has a lot of potential and if this bug can be fixed I would definitely change my rating.
-Have a data screen that displays the best wave of the session (longest distance/time)
-Have an auto lap feature for each wave. There is no way to see any specific wave data once the session ends, only the best wave (longest wave ride distance and longest time of ride, highest wave ride speed). Would be nice to see how other waves compared.
- It would be awesome if there was a way to display only the wave rides (similar to Dawn Patrol https://apps.apple.com/us/app/dawn-patrol/id1161014179). Currently
seems like it just counts the waves and does a lap at 1 mile of paddling (which isn't really a useful stat). Just get lots of flack from Apple Watch fanatics and would love to have better data eventually.
- Consider Total overall stats to add for the session:
Total Wave Ride Time
Total Wave Ride Distance
Avg Stroke Rate
Max Stroke Rate
Avg Distance Per Stroke

That's odd, I'll see if I can get it to output some debug data you can send over to see why it's crashing. Which watch are you using?
It already does lap every wave and the total stats you mentioned but you are not seeing them because of the crash, and it doesn't lap every mile (maybe you have auto lap set to 1 mile in your watch settings?)

Thanks! Really nice app, works well! However, it would be nice to add a pause/resume later function and to put the wave count conditions directly on the watch to modify it live depending on the waves
September 14, 2019, AledThomas
Thanks, pause/ resume should be easy to do- I'll add it.
Problem with altering wave count conditions in the app directly is Garmin doesn't want us entering data in the watch they want you to use the app so they removed the number entry feature from apps in the latest firmware, but I am trying to find a new way to input numbers as I also wanted to add a heat timer for contests and some other things so I'll look into it.
