|The app that provides a collection of surf spots around the world.
AUSTRALIA â€“Â Available now the app SurfSpotting offers surfers 1250 preset surf spots around the world. Its purpose is to provide surfers with a collection of surf spots around the world with a brief descriiption of each spot. The app is map based and displays surf spots within a 20 kilometre (12 mile) radius from the userâ€™s current GPS location. Users can also search for surf spots by browsing global regions, searching by individual spot names or by entering the current wind and swell directions.
The development of SurfSpotting focused on providing preset surf spots, but what makes it different from other â€˜surf appsâ€™ is that it allows users to collect and store their own spots. Both the preset and added spots are displayed on the maps and are used with the built-in search functions. Each spot has its own brief description including best wind direction, best swell direction, wave direction (left hander, right hander or both) and a summary of the surface below (rock, reef or sand). The home page displays all spots within a 20 kilometres (12 miles) radius of the userâ€™s current GPS location. Users can also search for surf spots by browsing global regions, searching by individual spot names or by entering the current wind and swell directions. When searching for a spot using the current conditions, the user must input the current wind and swell direction, wave direction they prefer and surface below. The matching results are then displayed on the m ap. SurfSpotting can be used by the travelling surfer or surfers just looking to discover new surf breaks.
SurfSpotting is now available for $2.99AU and is priced accordingly in other regions. The app is available world-wide on the Apple App Store
