    Weeks, thought it was just an update. Restarted and still does not fix it.
  • The Best Surf App

    By Davie Becker
    This is great for checking conditions before surfing. Never surf with checking Surfline first.
  • Premium did not work

    By wigglethemiddle
    Purchased premium but then it says “can not activate premium, see iTunes account.” I go to iTunes account and the subscription is there. So, now I am charged a subscription fee for nothing until someone decides to get back to me
  • They’ve Gone Corporate

    By Chris the W
    Just cancelled my Premium subscription because they increased the price by $30/The forecast is often wrong, and now I see that quite a few cams aren’t available for free anymore. Talk about screwing over your base.
  • The best

    It works great on my iPad or iPhone
  • Surf check

    By mpjal2516
    It’s a great app but need to be more beginner friendly to convince ppl to purchase premium. Be more revealing Keep up the maintenance of cams or upgrade for better resolution.
  • Great from the beginning

    They've been around along time. I've used them before they were in the apps store around 98-99 they continue to improve. Great job Surfline !!!
  • I use this all the time before a session

    By Mikkkkayyyyyla
    This is so accurate, I always use this before every session to make sure the waves are good, what kind of swells, tides, literally everything you need. You don’t even need premium to enjoy this app.
  • Sh!t

  • Very disappointing recurring issues!!

    By artistnamedchris
    I’ve been a premium member for years, and I’m very let down by this app. They post a video forecast twice weekly. The audio will not work on any IOS device I have. I need to either send it to my Apple TV or some sort of external speaker to hear the video. This is true not only for my iPad, but my iPhone. Now there’s content on their app that will play through the IOS internal speakers. But why they don’t fix this bug for the video forecast, I have no idea. I’ve also opened problem reports on their system, and they don’t respond. They want your money, but they don’t seem to want to fix the bugs on their software. This is bad business in my opinion! I will remove this poor review when they simply fix their tech issues. If you add up all the subscriptions they receive, I’m sure they get enough capital to fix a small bug like this! **************** Update 9/6/18 **************** I received a response from David, and he has asked me to ‘turn the sound on.’ I’m not sure why he states it that way. Apple has a feature where you can turn your ringer off, and still hear video content, etc. On the Surfline App, there is plenty of video content that works while the ringer is set to silent. Also, other IOS apps play video sound as well when the ringer is turned off. Surfline’s take on this is that we’ve turned our volume off. That’s not the case. The ringer is set to silent as a user option for those who don’t want to disturb others with a ringer. However, they don’t seem to want to fix this issue, and even if you’re headphones are plugged in, the sound wont work. Come on guys, let’s fix this like the rest of the video content on the site!
