Having trouble adjusting settings for regular surfing. I get lots of false positives. I usually surf in Encinitas, California and currently have parameters set up as 10-6-15-10 W(270),35... added min distance and false positives were less frequent. Sometimes I get them when paddling back to the outside after ducking a wave. I'm wondering if loss of GPS connectivity is causing it... Please help!

Had, the sync problems on my Fenix 3, got Fenix 5, and it works Perfect. Great App, a really useful tool for surfing and stand up paddling. If it would be possible to enter a decimal in the data fields would great. If not, it is great.

I have had my eye on this app for a while and today i finally purchased a Garmin watch.. very excited!!! I can't seem to find much info on how to use this data field - can anyone offer any advice? How do i set the BeachDir before i push start? I can't work out where to change the direction setting on the watch itself... i can only change the direction using the mobile phone app. Thanks!

If you have "Measure BeachDir at Start of Activity" selected in the settings (in Garmin Connect/Express), then stand on the beach and point the 12 hand of the watch perpendicular to the waves, then go to the activity with the data field and you will see it averaging the direction. Once it measures and stabilizes (15 sec or so), then press Start and go surf. Otherwise uncheck the "Measure BeachDir" and use a fixed value. If you still have questions use the Contact Dev link.

Great App! used it on my Fenix 3 and now with my Fenix 5.
It would be nice if we could somehow see the water temp on the main screen (any screen?). Maybe below the Wave Count? Water Temp is one of the main reasons I use my Garmin over my Rip Curl Search (that also tracks waves, quite elegantly I must say).
Water temp is such a conversation point when in the line up. For instance today it was 76 degrees while 2 days ago it was 66.
Regardless, great app and makes your watch that much more valuable if you surf.

I am using Fenix 5S plus. I downloaded this application but I do not know how to activate this on the watch. This is not an actual application but downloaded as data field. Do you know how to activate this ?

why cant I get it to work on Fenix 5X?

Perhaps because you didn’t read the instructions? If you need help then use the contact developer link. It’s a data field not an app so you need to add it to an existing activity like SUP, paddling etc

This data field does not display correctly on a Fenix 5!
Why is that, as the image on the page is a Fenix 5
The display is vertical not horizontal

I don't understand your comment...if you have a problem please send a message using the contact developer link. I can respond thru email and then you can send a screenshot.

Outstanding app!! My favorite data point is seeing how often I ride waves longer than 200 yards (generally once every four or five sessions). Thank you so much for developing this!!

Great good job man just didn’t get how to use it I’m now to garmin a short video of how to use it will be great! Thanks a lot !

Very good app! Well done until the next update :-)
And a question:
How can I change the time threshold of the wave ride from 6sec to 3 oe 4 sec as we really have some small waves down here to ride :-) and I would like to see at least how many wave I was able to catch!

Change the settings in Garmin Connect Mobile (on your phone) or using Garmin Express:
You may have to increase the Min Max Speed (to 13 or more) so you don't get waves counted that you paddle for and miss.

A Few weeks back I questioned the surfers direction - your response was I should of done beach facing direction and a week or to later you changed it. Outstanding work you put in.....
Follow up from Bens Comments. HOW CAN WE DONATE?:) The App that you have made is worth much more then factious stars

This data field has to be close to top of the pile for Garmin to acquire and to bring the dev bwd a little windfall for his / her work. With the latest updates, it's a legit challenger to the Rip Curl GPS watch.
I agree, changing to 'Beach Facing Direction' would be a bit clearer and I tweaked my settings to be 10, 6, 15, 10 and 35. I surf Sydney beach breaks most often on a performance long-board and sometimes short-board.
With the above settings and making sure I stand / stay pretty still in the water for 5-10 seconds after each wave the log is extremely accurate.
If there was a way to count a wave as a 'lap' that would be cool. Obviously the way way Rip Curl maps the wave as opposed to the paddle back out is a bridge to far (understandably).
Again, great work, great app. Very spoilt to get it for free. Can we donate anywhere bwd to say thanks?

I have followed the instructions to save the data into a text file.
Once the correct .PRG file was found i put in into the GARMIN/APPS/LOGS folder and once i opened the text file it was unreadable symbols and words that i couldn't make any sense of.
If anybody could please help me find out how to collect and review my data by referring a link or anything it would be greatly appreciated i'm having a great deal of trouble. Thank you.
2018년 2월 9일 (금), bwd1
Use the Contact Developer link and send me a message and hopefully i can help. Just to be clear, don't move or copy the .PRG file, just use it to get the filename and create a file in the GARMIN/APPS/LOGS folder. For example, if you find that SurfTracker is called /GARMIN/APPS/69SI5820.PRG, then create an empty file with this name /GARMIN/APPS/LOGS/69SI5820.TXT

Could be possible to have a lap for each wave, so then we can compare the waves of the session, Cool !!!

Now its added lefts and rights. keeps getting better.
Are you able to help me in explain what the surfers right direction (deg) should be set to. If it helps the beaches are facing east where I mainly head to.
2018년 1월 22일 (월), bwd1
Thanks for the comments. I guess I didn't really give instructions on how to set the "Surfers Right Direction". If your beaches are facing E, then you would set the direction to North. Maybe I should change it to "Beach Facing Direction", to make it easier to understand (in your case E), and then rotate it...?

perfect app, goog job,

Best settings for Fenix 5?
I change some settings but F5 give me more waves and differents speeds.
Ex: 12/34 waves max speed 326 km/h (impossible lolololol)
I change my VivoActive to F5 and the GPS are less noise in Vivo active..
Please helppp meee about the settings..
merry Christmas ho ho ho!!!

Not sure, on my 935 I use 12/6/15/0 and it works. Can you send me a message using the developer link and send me a link to a sample activity.
2017년 12월 5일 (화) | 버전 2.40-upd
App has never failed. Have a Fenix 5x. I do screenshots after a session on the watch. I noticed that garmin connect incorporated an IQ. Which showed min /max speed. Min/max distance and total wave travelled someother cool things. But now its disappeared. My point is looks like garmin is trying to work with your APP. This APP is (for me) so stable. You have done such a great job.

Really good for those tracking their SUP paddling and wave riding efforts in particular long wave runner areas in river inlets etc some great insights
2017년 12월 1일 (금) | 버전 2.40-upd
Thanks so much for creating this app...it's the main reason I bought the vivoactive 3!
When you get the time, it would be great if you could amend the layout for the VA3. The watch currently shows the time of day and activity time in the top and bottom fields which means you don't need to display those in the middle. It looks like you only display the last/longest/total ride. That is, only one of those and not of them as you do on the other watches. I would seriously be happy to pay for this fix... Like I said this app is why I bought the watch, thanks again.
2017년 12월 2일 (토), bwd1
Thanks for the review. Can you send me a message using the Contact Developer link. I need some more info since I don't have a VA3. I'll reply and then maybe you can email me a photo or screenshot. Are using the middle row in a 3 row setup? You can also use a 1 field layout to show all the info.
2017년 11월 26일 (일) | 버전 2.40-upd
Would like more explanation regarding why there's a max speed threshold.
2017년 11월 16일 (목) | 버전 2.40
Awesome app - thanks for adding vivoactive 3 support!
However, I just updated to the latest app version and I can no longer see the settings to configure the app when I go to Garmin Connect - Devices - Activities and App Management - Data Fields - Surf Tracker 2
Have the settings moved elsewhere? I haven't been able to find them
