Dedicated surfing app for garmin watches.</p><p></p><p>***note***</p><p>Garmin have introduced their own surfing app on the "Garmin instinct surf" and broken the summary view on Garmin connect for activities saved as 'surfing' by other apps, you may have spent hundreds on your watch but Garmin say if you want to surf you must buy their new watch.</p><p>This app has not changed and will still function the same as always and mark your waves as laps, At the moment there is no way for a downloaded app to affect how data is shown in garmin connect. Unless garmin decide to give 3rd party apps access to set these new stats they will show as '--' .</p>

I’ve used this for about six months and until recently it worked quite well. Now it never seems to find the gps. I have a forerunner 645 music. Might be a bug due to garmin update? Currently it doesn’t work at all for me

Could be, try opening one of the built in apps on the watch that use GPS and waiting until it picks up the signal, then close that app and open the surfing one again.

Every since I downloaded this app a little over a year ago it has worked quite well. Recently, the app has been freezing shortly after getting into the water almost every session. Maybe this is related to the new Garmin update? Once the activity is uploaded, the activity duration is correct but the GPS tracking doesn’t come through (map + distance). Hoping this gets resolved. Thanks.

Thanks for that great app! The autotrack doesnt work very well yet on my side!? Which settings where the defaults or which is your favourite setting? Think i played to much with the settings and there is no "Default" Button. Second question: you said somewhere: "..or upload gpsx elsewhere!" To where? Is there anything which analyses surfing? Strava doesnt do anything yet. Any suggestions or link? Thanks

Wavestracker is a good place for analysis of your surfing tracks. For me the defaults work well but if your waves are smaller or shorter you may need to adjust them

2022. április 21.

Pretty cool, yes, sensitive, it does count every wave even if I didn’t surf it. Guess I need to put a higher speed for it to be an actually wave. Where do you recommend to export the data too for the more detailed analysis? Thank you for this app! I have a vivoactive 4s.

Hi, thanks for the review. Yes if you're getting good quality waves you can up the speed a little and the time setting to get more precise wave counts Wavestracker is the best app I've found for displaying exported tracks and a breakdown of individual waves

Easy to use and set up. GPS works well.. Definitely over counting waves but I reckon I'll muck around with settings. Developer responded to my question quickly (couldn't get GPS to work.. Who knew need to be outside) .. Gr8 free app.. Forerunner 245

2022. február 20.

Overall it is a good app. I have read many of the reviews and I can recommend the developer a better costumer service can also improve the rating.

If I was to offer a "customer" service, then I'd have to charge you for the app, I'm sure you can afford it if you can afford a garmin watch right? Hey! then I can hire some trained monkeys instead of the untrained ones I use now to respond to you!

Fair enough, you clearly don't speak English which is probably why you didn't read any of the instructions. Maybe if I translate them into every language in existence you'd give more stars? Or probably still not read them

App is great in the water on Fenix 5X Plus, the data is accurate and useful, however once I connect and download to my phone after the surf it only saves my GPS map, so one long squiggly line on the map. None of the wave data is saved eg longest wave, number of waves, any timing etc. I see there are a few other people that have experienced the same problem in the reviews. Is this something that is being looked at?

A fejlesztő válasza
2022. január 16., AledThomas

It's all explained fully in the instructions. Whether it's being looked at I've no idea, you'd have to ask Garmin seeing as it's their app on your phone that isn't showing you the data. I'm guessing their answer will be to try and sell you a fenix 6.

You have done extremely well to develop a surfing app using the functions of the smart watch.App works well if you set it up correctly for the conditions. Only thing missing is that we need a different colour on the map for waves ridden. This would let the surfers tell the difference between waves ridden and where the surfer is paddling. Some of the running apps change colour on the GPS tracking line on the map based on velocity. Is this something you could add to the app?

A fejlesztő válasza

Unfortunately if you mean the map in garmins "connect" app, then it's all down to Garmin, and they only add/change features when new watches come out so they can make them "exclusive" to certain models and charge more for them :D

2022. január 4.

Nice app. Good interface. After a little adjustment it tracked my waves well on a decent 100mtr plus reef break. Would love the option of adding a data field and auto scroll so I don’t have to press buttons while in sea water. Good work. Fenix 6

This app definitely does work on a fenix 5x watch. But if you're advising people not to get a job at some place called "fenix" , and return there 5 times then fair enough, but this isn't the right place for careers advice. Thanks for the helpful 1 star review though.

Thank you for this useful app, ,which adds a missing feature to my Vivoactive 4. I had a bit difficulty with the app recording waves, though, even if the settings (minimum speed and time) seemed correct. I have now noticed your remark on every second recording instead of "smart recording". Do you think this is probably the cause? Thanks.

A fejlesztő válasza
2021. december 16., AledThomas

Could be, or could be GPS signal quality (looking at the recorded track might give hints if it's losing signal). Remember when the watch is underwater it won't have any signal at all. If the signal is good, try lowering the minimums in the settings

2021. december 8.

It always says I catch more waves than I do. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? Gotta play with it more.

You know what would be really cool? If you could mark out your takeoff point and be able to paddle back to it or stay in position during the session. Instead of having to rely on landmarks etc. Would be amazing to know you're in the right position for those very long period days on those long beach breaks. Or even for pointbreaks and reefs with strong currents. I would pay for an app like that fr fr

Your watch already does that though, or if not then there's apps that do, this app is for saving your surf as a Garmin track so it's not really what this app is for.
