    chat about surf spots

    Does anyone know a good app to chat about specific surf spots? With surfline I can see the webcam and daily reports, but if I wanted to know how it was for other surfers, up to the minute, is there any app for that? Like with ChatTag you can go to #SurfScripps and you can see what surfers are saying...anything else like that?

    Yeah, there's iKook, iSnake, Not-So-Secret Spot, BrokeBreaks, and SpotShott.

    Any of them will enable you to assist in blowing up the sanctity of mad surf spots!

    Before he went off the grid in Chappelle-esque fashion, NJshred was known to provide a live feed of up to the minute status updates from the crest of 23ft altitude via his lifeproof iPhone 6.

    Gotta spell it right on the search in App Store, but yes. It will tell you the desired approach angle for a pier's pilings relative to the wind direction at the time.

    here we have locals who check a spot and text 30 people that it's on and within the hour it's not worth being there.
    And you want to add to that?

    Yes. It's called "surfing". It's included with Life version 4 or 5. I never can remember the latest revisions but the basic gist is that you show up at your local break and talk with other surfers.

    Hey Guys! Maybe we should just use this thread to chat about our favorite spots by name.
    I heard that Belmar, NJ has the best waves on the east coast- and it's always a few feet bigger then other spots...
    Anyone else know of any all time- best working- always has waves spot? (Like Belmar, NJ 16th ave jetty)

    I wish I'd thought of this. This post is guerrilla marketing at its finest.

    0 reviews, version 1.0 build back in August, v1.4 on Nov.7, which I bet is Release. Julie is the developer.

    Kookery for surfing, but an interesting Twatter alternative.
