There is an issue. The app automatically quits a session when the gps connects.
So if I start a session without waiting for the gps to connect (because it takes long) then my session gets lost once the GPS gets connected.

Hello Jansen and thanks for your feedback. First time I've heard about this kind of issue ! I doubt that it comes from the application because I don't see anything, in the code, which could cause such behavior more than strange and never seen since my applications exist on the store (same code and routine for all my apps, very simple , nothing special). Can you contact me by email so that we can see together where it could come from, although I suspect a problem with the firmware of your watch (bug, failure...). Thanks to you.

Not sure why, but the app isn't working on my Fenix 3 HR.
Is it possibly my watch that is faulty?
Or is it the app?
08. november 2022,
Hello Carl, and thanks for your feedback. The app is supposed to run fine on all the models so, can you contact me directly by email in order to investigate your issue with more details and precisions. Thanks in advance.

Still can't get it to work that well! In fact the strava app does a better job with stats than the Garmin app.
Way too hard to setup and get working on my Venu 2.

Hello Dave and thanks for your comment. The app is known to work properly on all the devices, maybe there is something faulty on your specific watch? You may also probably know that the app offers an automatic mode that allows automatic recovery of every surf, right or left, and this feature works perfectly (no feedback from any other user so far). As for the data presented by Garmin Connect, I have no control over them, except those defined by the application itself. Finally, you can contact me directly by email to see what we can do together to try to solve your problem.

I upgraded my Fenix Watch and saw Garmin had a Surf App so I sold my older watch with the app on it. the Garmin surf app misses half my waves and sometimes says i'm going over 70 kmh. i'm not that good. JMG's Surf App worked well and had better tracked Data.

I like to paddle surf and have tried 3 different surfing apps and this one is by far the best. The Garmin one only works for regular surfing and not even that well. This one picks up a surf everytime and tracks all the metrics you want. Very cool!

Great app. Tracked surf and waves really accurately. Developer also included a feature to switch between activity timing / time of day.

Great App. measure speed length a nd direction of Waves caught.
Love checking out Max Speed, Length and overall distance covered.
getting the unlock isn't intuitive but JMG has all the detail on his site and is very helpful. Easy once you know how,

Application qui semble intéressante néanmoins nous avons aucune information sur les données que l'on peut retrouver sur garmin connect ( vous n'évoqué uniquement les données FIT )
Et comment celle-ci sont affichés
Une période d'essai ( 12h par exemple )
Serais intéressante afin de confirmer ou non l'achat de votre application
10. september 2021,
Bonjour Math_cyno pour votre commentaire. En plus des données Garmin par défaut habituellement enregistrées dans la fichier FIT (vitesses, calories, FC, etc), voici la liste complète de toutes les données calculées et enregistrées dans ce fichier FIT (et sous quelle forme) par l'application: https://www.jeanmichelgruber.com/applications-garmin-garmin-apps/jmg-app-surfing-paddling/français/
Concernant la possibilité de pouvoir tester l'application, vous disposez, dans l'application, d'un simulateur qui vous permet de simuler une session, comme si vous étiez sur l'eau ! Vous pouvez lancer cet outil dans le menu "Tools - Simulator"

The app is really good, I love it! it really goes beyond expectations same as the assistance provided by Jean Michel, a real gentleman and very professional. Hats off!

En consultant, le site tout n’est que « rallerie » de la part de l’éditeur.
Il existe de nombreuses applications gratuites de qualité qu’il est possible de récompenser par la suite. Et ce dans tout le monde de l’informatique.
Le meilleur argument qu’a l’éditeur est: « vous avez une montre bien chère, vous pouvez donner plus...! »

Visiblement, ma réponse à votre premier commentaire n’a pas dû vous plaire car vous l’avez remplacé par celui-ci, toujours aussi vide d’appréciations pertinentes sur le fond à propos de l’application. Qu’avez-vous ? Votre été se déroule mal, et vous avez décidé de vous payer la tête d’un développeur afin de compenser votre frustration ? Mon site n’est que raillerie ? Ah bon. Vous avez dû mal lire car je ne fais simplement qu’y dénoncer les agissements passés de certains utilisateurs malveillants que vous-même, à la déduction de votre commentaire, n’auriez probablement même pas toléré ne serait-ce que plus d’une fois ! Merci de m’accorder encore ce droit de l’écrire sur mon propre site, même si cela ne vous convient pas mais, comme le dit l’adage, on ne peut pas plaire à tout le monde ! Et pour votre info, « dans tout le monde de l’informatique », il existe aussi des applications payantes, ou à abonnements, etc... à vous lire, les développeurs du monde entier ne vivraient que du bon vouloir ou de la générosité des utilisateurs ? Ça se saurait si c’était le cas, non ? Et vous, votre travail, comment est-il rémunéré ? Selon l’humeur du jour de votre employeur ? Si vous avez trouvé mieux et gratuit ailleurs, allez-y, personne ne vous l’interdit j’imagine mais ici, on vous demande de seulement noter et commenter une application que vous n’avez par conséquent ni testée ni essayée, et pour cause, et non de jeter votre venin sur un site personnel d’un développeur qui, visiblement, ne vous convient pas (une page commentaires est d’ailleurs destinée à cela sur mon site). Votre commentaire frise donc la malhonnêteté intellectuelle, et quant à votre dernière phrase en guise de raccourci fallacieux, je n’y répondrai même pas tellement le sens que vous lui donnez en devient... risible. Pour finir, si vous recommencez votre manip de suppression de votre premier commentaire, je signalerai cette fois-ci votre façon de procéder, qui s’apparente fort à du harcèlement, à Garmin.

There is room for dramatic improvements.
1) In the main screen, the number below the wave orientation should be the total distance covered. However, the unit should be in km, not mt. Also, it would be nice if the total distance covered appeared in the ‘end of session’ screen.
2) In the main screen, the current speed never appears, irrespectively of the type of activity I am doing (paddling, surfing). I tried to paddle several times looking at the watch, I had just one read that lasted for one second (tested it on 2 different watches). Also, it’s not really useful having an icon showing the type of activity in progress, for two reasons: firstly, because I know if I am paddling or swimming, but most importantly because this icon depends on a values that I arbitrarily gave before, so it doesn’t really recognize the type of activity. It would be instead useful having a paddle counter and paddling effectiveness value (number of paddles vs distance covered). This is of paramount importance.
3) It would be nice to read the time without needing to stop the activity in progress.
4) The app doesn’t detect all the waves and sometimes it detects waves when I am simply paddling. It would be nice to have the ability to control not just the minimum speed but also the minimum time/distance (distance threshold) for a wave to be detected.
5) In the option menu - speed unit, km/h-mph or knots can be selected. But it is km/h or mph? it can’t be both. In the wide screen menu, it would be nice to have some more explanation about the options ‘show speed, nb of surf, alternate(???)’. Show them where?
6) In garmin connect, the header contains no data. Everything is empty but the session time.
Wave detection and other data (paddling count, distance, output in Garmin connect) are more advanced and overall better in the free version on the Connect IQ Store, and this is a disappointment since I spent 16 AUD on this app. I am going back to the free app for now. I hope that my comments will help

I was really impressed by the support provided by Jean-Michel. Hats off to the developer. I asked about a feature for the app and it was added within a week, even in the face of a global meltdown!!

I have to explain that before making the payment I have not read the explanations of the seller, which has created a confusion, which is my fault. The response by the seller has been perfect. So it

Love this app. Awesome that someone put the effort into a surfing app for Garmin, and works really well. Loved seeing my speed stats, wave count and positioning during the session. Fair price too.
My only crit would be I think the sign up and payment method could be simplified.

Great app. Works really well. I have tried all the other surf apps available on ConnectIQ and this is definitely the best one available.
24. oktober 2019 |
You have to pay to start a session. Not nice.
16. oktober 2019 |
Really nice Application. Works perfectly on the fenix 6 and it shows all the data needed.
Jean-Michel is also very responsive.
Thanks for the Application!

Thanks Reto for your nice comment, I appreciate
05. oktober 2019 |
I'm thinking to buy this app. I want to know if it saves Gps tracking. For see later in a map. Thanks.
05. oktober 2019,
Hello Manuel, and thanks for your question. Yes, obviously, the track of your session is recorded and saved to the FIT file in order to be seen later in Garmin Connect
27. avgust 2019 |
Awesome app. Read everything before purchasing and don't blame the developer for you being and idiot. I missed a few things myself but figured it out. Works great, awesome app, records heart rate too. Thank you!

It doesn't work in my Vivoactive 3 music. It doesn't save data of my surf session, just the activity time. I don't understand why I can read in the description that it's compatible. Garmin issue?
25. avgust 2019,
Hello Juan. As explained in my email that was sent to you, the application works like a charm on all the models for which it was developed, the source code being identical for these groups of watches. So, if the code was defective, there would be many users who would complain about a faulty application, but that is not the case. As indicated in the email that I sent you, it seems that there is a technical defect with the Vivo 3 Music when recording / exporting a FIT file created by a third party application. You would be better off contacting Garmin about this rather than posting a comment here that will unfortunately not bring you any solution because, indeed, I can not be held responsible for a problem that seems to occur specifically on that some of that models, and for which I can not do anything ! Finally, as explained to you too, I have another user that use the Wind-Kite Surfing app, and like you, front the same issue each time he wants to save its session, the same common point, he owns a Vivo 3 Music ! How could I change a source code that works for 99.9% of watches ? Tell me...

Hi. I have paid the app, how can I have full acess now? I did not get any code....
22. junij 2019 |
I purchased the app several several months ago now and tested quite a few sessions with my Fenix 5X. It great! it works perfectly and I love it! Really recommended! You'll love it!
Now we just need a cool app to show all the data and statistics and it would be amazing! Come on! ;-)

Bummer. I would buy this in a second, but dont have paypal :( You take facebook payment or any other payment options?

I installed this application in my garmin fenix 3 after having paid it previously and my garmin has not worked again I have damaged my fenix 3
06. marec 2019,
As said previously in an email sent to you, a third party app can absolutely not damage the hardware of a device (but it's up to you to think the contrary) and, if there were such "malicious code" inside the app, I think it would be the case for all the users of the app..., but it seems that it's not the case, except if I missed something. If such third-party app could irreparably damage a device, I do not think anyone would attempt to install such third-party applications on their devices, too much risky ! However, I refunded your money back to avoid to enter into a controversy that will serve no purpose.

I downloaded and purchased the app over the last weekend, first Chance to check out the app today wednesday, and I must say it is everything that a premium app should be on a Premium device, very well worked out clear instructions and I believe a true reflection of my session, well done Jean, installation went off without a hitch and syncing from phone to Fenix5 was flawless, in my opinion very good value for money, I used the Sup surfing option.
