THE BEST SURF REPORT / FORECASTING TOOL PERIOD ... and it's all based on NOAA buoy data... ** Now available for iPad and iPhone ** Indicators is the only iPhone app that gives you 'spectral energy density' buoy data and makes it easy to understand... so you can truely know if it's firing at your favorite spot... FEATURES INCLUE: - Real-Time NOAA Buoy Data - 6 Hour History NOAA Buoy Data - 7 Day Forecasted NOAA Buoy Data - Real-Time NOAA Buoy Data Spectral wave energy data collected by offshore buoys is the best indicator of surf conditions in your area. Indicators makes it simple to read this wave energy data so you can determine the best swell windows (combinations of swell period and direction) for your favorite breaks. Buoys report data every 30 minutes, giving you a much better idea of how much swell is in the water rather than a subjective "cam watching" report. - 6 Hour History NOAA Buoy Data Too often, swell arrives later than predicted. Use the 6-hour history feature to determine if the swell has arrived. If not, go back to bed. - 7 Day Forecasted NOAA Buoy Data Graphically view forecasted buoy data, giving you a better idea of how the swell is changing with time. Indicators allows you to: STOP WASTING TIME WATCHING SURF CAMS Waves come in sets... So if you are watching a cam... Are you sure you've watched long enough to see a good set? Are you sure you weren't fooled because you saw a rogue set? If you did see a good set... wouldn't you rather be riding it? STOP READING REPORTS THAT ONLY UPDATE TWICE PER DAY Who makes these reports? Dudes watching cams... (flawed). How often are these updated? Twice per day... Really? Buoy data updates every 30 mintues... (I'd pick this one) KNOW WHEN THE SURF IS GOOD IN SECONDS You only need buoy data... but not just any buoy data... You need swell height, direction and period for each swell. You can use this app to determine the optimal swell direction / period for your favorite breaks...
The 1 bouy in the area I need keeps showing the same error message. Just pick another bouy it says....... next one is 30 miles down the coast.
I live in the Miami area and there are no buoys listed anywhere in South Florida. Seems strange that there would be no buoys in what must be the largest boating community in the world. This app is useless to me.
Very clean design and easy to use. Great customer support. They responded to my questions in a few hours over email.
Incredibly well-made and more useful than anything else!
Very powerful surf forecasting app. Lots of data yet easy to understand due to graphical representation. I had a problem recently when app wasn't showing Buoy data. Emailed developer and instantly received a response (was a problem with NOAA buoys sending data-not the app and was fixed quickly) great response!!🤙
Difficult to pull out simple info. I'm going to delete it
SWEETNESS. Just what I need for my hours of epic surfing!
Love the details this app provides. I'm not sure all of it's needed but I'd rather have more than less.
Super useful for SoCal, specifically Malibu. I use this every morning before I surf and it's allowed me to have a pretty good understanding of how much swell is in the water. The standard '3-4ft' reports just don't really tell me that much. This is finally a quick way to understand the swell quality for those of us who can't stare at the cam all day.
Great update. I will now be using this during my Hawaii surf trips.
