    “The official NOAA buoys are essential tools that pro surfers use, and you should too. This app is definitely a steal.”
    – Surfer Magazine

    "’It's actually great for figuring out what's going on when you wake up in the dark and need figure out what's going on, without leaving your bed’ […] If the surf hasn't cleaned up yet, or the swell hasn't arrived, no one wants to stumble out into a 40-degree morning […] It's also good for getting real time info to track a swell, watching the numbers rise or fall.”
    – ESPN Surfing Blog

    The app “processes countless data from NOAA’s buoys and displays it in an easy-to-read format on your phone.”

    Didn't give wave size nor wave interval like the app said it would.

    A 'favorite' menu would be useful to avoid searching for the same buoy over and over again. Also an option to display the stats of a favorite buoy on the home screen. Otherwise very useful.

    I wish I didn't have to remember which buoy is near me. A map maybe?

    I work at a surf shop and spend tons of time in the water. I love the convenience of this app for quick tide references. My station was added just moments after I inquired about it via email. Big thanks...strongly recommend
