    "I have been using the Surfline app to help me know when and where I should go surfing. The app is okay, but it seems to be wrong a lot. I guess I just shouldn't depend on an electronic device to predict perfect surfing conditions. I will continue to use the app, but I will mainly rely on my own judgement."

    "If you are really into the ocean or live near the ocean this would be the app for you. We downloaded it when we were going on an ocean vacation and it's pretty cool telling you water temperature, wave heights and stuff. However after I went home ( I live hours from the beach) I had no use for it. So I recommend this only if you are swimming in the ocean all the time. "

    "I have no idiea what a surfer looks for in an app, but I assume it's got something to do with hotels and beaches. That being said Kayak Flights is a decent one to help you find either of those for a good price."

    Windy is an intuitive, fast, efficient and the most accurate weather forecast app trusted by professional pilots, surfers, boaters, fishermen, kiters, storm chasers and weather geeks. Useful whether you are tracking a tropical storm, impending severe weather, planning a trip, or you just need to know if it will rain this weekend.

    "I like the graphics for the radar and the updated info it gives me. Sometimes there is a lag in getting the info updated and I'll have to reboot it once in a while to get the radar working right, but it still works pretty well."
