The app is really good when out surfing. When you go to upload to phone to garmin app I am unable to see wave count, longest wave etc. Does anyone know how to see this information? Thanks

Hi, Garmin won't allow you to see that data anymore since they launched their own 'surfing' watches, you can export the data on your computer though and import into a different app which shows them, wavestracker is a good one

Hi. Seems when I start the app. When I look at the timer it freezes? Any ideas how to fix this please? I dont like using the open swimming app for my surfing. You guys my only hope.

What watch? Can you send debug data, recorded activities? Unfortunately just leaving a review is no help it gives me no indication of the problem and no way to contact you back to help, use the 'contact developer' link on the app page instead please

Amazing app. Thanks! Since Garmin denies the right of using their app, this does the job pretty well!

Best and most simple surfing app.

GPS works great! Tracks your Location and where you surfed. Watch gives you the correct info during surfing. However after you upload the data to the phone, it does not give the “longest wave” ; “Total wave” and “Max speed”
If you go into raw data then it shows additional info but the main screen is missing info.
Additionally Expect deviation on waves counted. It does not correspond to reality.
Data show and analysis in Phone could be better...

So you want me to fix Garmin's app? I can't do anything about what their app shows you on your phone, I would suggest ditch Garmin and use a better app. All of this is explained in the instructions as is how to get an accurate wave count.

Stays freeze on the “waiting gps” screen, I’m using the Fenix 5. Any tips???

If you are outdoors and have a decent signal that screen should go green and then you can press start button to begin recording, it can take a couple minutes in a new place.
If it isn't picking up a signal and other apps are working ok on GPS then it's usually an install problem which can be fixed by uninstalling the app and re-installing from the store

That's pretty easy for you to fix, thanks for the helpful review though

It didn’t quite track proportionally to my wave count. Does this app measure speed in KPH or MPH? How about distance?
2021. siječnja 19, AledThomas
Yes it measures speed and distance. The settings can be tailored to the kind of waves and surfing you do, to give an accurate wave count.

This app does exactly as outlined. The whole purpose for me getting this app was specifically to track the time i spend on this activity each week into strava.
This app makes it east to automatically save the raw data + gps map into strava. unfortunately due to Garmin's own decisions ride data doesn't sync which also means this doesn't integrate with the Surfline app to review rides.
I spent like 5 hours trying to make my own custom activity data and it was pointless, this is good enough for what i need it for!
My only suggestion / question to the developer is: the wave data i see is relatively accurate in small waves (under 5 ft) but once i'm in larger surf the # or rides is really inaccurate... again for me though, all I really wanted was how long i'm in the surf & a map of where I was at during that time... and it being in strava! thanks for doing that for me!

Hi, thanks for the review. You should be able to change some of the criteria for measuring waves for bigger waves, maybe at a higher minimum speed for very large waves

Got a Garmin Forerunner 645 for Christmas and have used this on three surfs since. Very well designed, slick and easy to use. I found it to be very accurate!

Peut être que je n'utilise pas bien l'application mais après plusieurs sessions je n'ai que le résumé de temps, la vitesse et les points Gps. L'appli ne me remonte aucun quantitatif de vague ni de distance...

Pardonnez moi pas que mon français n'est pas bon, Ce n'est pas l'application sur le montre c'est l'application de Garmin sur le portable que est le problème. Je ne peut pas faire quelque-chose c'est a Garmin pour le réparer
